“Want to know the real story of the war in Iraq? This is it. I love this book!” (New York Times–bestselling author Lt. Col. Robert “Buzz” Patterson) In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Ali Turner was a fully committed anti-war protestor. Caught up in the wave of aggressive activism that swept through the nation’s college campuses Ali, in her own words, “passionately wanted to see America destroyed.” Decades later, she was stirred to action once again. This time as a fierce supporter of the military, living in a combat zone in an increasingly unpopular war. From 2004 to 2007, Ali had the chance of a lifetime to atone for the past and say a belated “thank you” for her freedom by working in Morale, Welfare, and Recreation centers in Baghdad. She heard the courageous and compassionate stories of hundreds of Iraqis, Coalition soldiers, Navy SEALS, interpreters, Army Rangers, and contractors from around the world. She was in Baghdad for the return of Iraq to the Iraqis, three Iraqi elections, and Saddam’s trial and execution. An inspiring new perspective on Operation Iraqi Freedom, Ballad for Baghdad is an “endearing and spiritual story about self-redemption” written by a woman on an unforgettable, three-year odyssey on the frontlines (Major Sean Michael Flynn, author of The Fighting 69th).

The most popular mystery writer of all time concocted a rich recipe of intrigue, character, and setting. All of Agatha Christie’s 66 detective novels are covered here in great detail. Each chapter begins with general comments on a novel’s geographical and historical setting, identifying current events, fashions, fads and popular interests that relate to the story. A concise plot summary and comprehensive character listing follow, and each novel is discussed within Christie’s overall body of work, with an emphasis on the development of themes, narrative technique, and characters over the course of her prolific career. An appendix translates Poirot’s French and defines the British idiomatic words and phrases that give Christie’s novels so much of their flavor.

Baghdad Central is a noir debut novel set in Baghdad in September 2003. The US occupation of Iraq is a swamp of incompetence and self-delusion. The CPA has disbanded the Iraqi army and police as a consequence of its paranoid policy of de-Ba'athification of Iraqi society. Tales of hubris and reality-denial abound, culminating in Washington hailing the mess a glorious "mission accomplished." Inspector Muhsin al-Khafaji is a mid-level Iraqi cop who deserted his post back in April. Khafaji has lived long enough in pre- and post-Saddam Iraq to know that clinging on to anything but poetry and his daughter, Mrouj, is asking for trouble. Nabbed by the Americans and imprisoned in Abu Ghraib, Khafaji is offered one way out—work for the CPA to rebuild the Iraqi Police Services. But it's only after United States forces take Mrouj that he figures out a way to make his collaboration palatable, and even rewarding. Soon, he is investigating the disappearance of young women translators working for the US Army. The bloody trail leads Khafaji through battles, bars, and brothels then finally back to the Green Zone, where it all began. This is a first novel by Elliott Colla, an American writer totally immersed in Middle Eastern affairs. He is a professor of Arabic literature at Georgetown University, and a well-known translator from the Arabic of local fiction and poetry. He lives between Washington, DC, and the Middle East.

This is the first comprehensive history and economic analysis of the Fertile Crescent during the 19th century, a region currently encompassing Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, and a small part of Turkey. Presenting 155 carefully selected documents--the majority drawn from British and French archives and here published for the first time, the balance translated from Arabic, French, German, Russian, Hebrew, Italian, and Turkish sources--Issawi provides an in-depth treatment of the economic life of the region, with chapters on social life and organization, trade, transport, agriculture, industry, and public and private finance. Including extensive cross-references that pinpoint the connections between the subjects discussed, the book is an invaluable resource on a historically rich and dynamic region.

The Conquest of Assyria tells what must surely be one of the most romantic tales of archaeological endeavour. The great cities and ancient palaces of Mesopotamia had lain buried for over two millenia, and were all but forgotten, half remembered in the Hebrew Bible and Classical texts. This volume records the dramatic finds, the decipherment of the cuneiform system of writing and the rediscovery of a lost civilisation.
