'Doran's book provides a fresh and unconventional perspective on the origins of the war in Iraq and with it thought-provoking insights into the motivations of the US government when it invaded Iraq' -- Sharon Beder, author of Free Market Missionaries and Suiting Themselves: How Corporations Drive the Corporate Agenda.
