About the Author:

Dilip Hiro is a writer and journalist living in London. He is the author of Holy Wars: The Rise of Islamic Fundamentalism (Routledge, 1989) and Iran Under the Ayatollahs (Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1987) among others.

Review:

"Hiro's work, clearly written and balanced, illustrated with photographs that portray the war in all its horror, is the best book on the subject so far."
From the reviews of the British edition:
-Patrick Seale, "The Observer
"Outstandingly objective . . . an object lesson in how an acocmplished journalist can and should reconstruct events of world-wide importance."
-Justin Wintle, "The Independent
"Authoritative . . . Hiro's exacting, analytical approach is especially appropriate for a war which has never been quite what it seems."
-Amanda Mitchison, "New Statesman and Society
"Pakistani journalist Dilip Hiro takes us well beyond images of Khomeini dart boards and Saddam voodoo dolls to reveal calculating interest groups whom the West might have manipulated more skillfully . . . . captures the human motivations behind the war."
-"Los Angeles Times
." . . with his maps and photographs, his chronology and documentary appendixes, he succeeds in chronicling with powerful detail what, to contemporary eyes, is that conflict's cruel and utter futility."
-Lisa Anderson, "New York Times Book Review
