Part memoir, part political diatribe, and part current history, Peter GalbraithÃ¢ s critique of the effort to bring democracy to Iraq is complex, discouraging, and not entirely consistent. In GalbraithÃ¢ s view, Iraq was held together by the sheer brutality of Saddam Hussein and his henchmen. By crushing the BaÃ¢ athists, the George W. Bush administration unleashed ethnic and religious forces that had been suppressed for decades.
