Poisoned Well: Empire and its Legacy in the Middle East PB
Paperback, 288 pages
Hardy examines the unfortunate legacies of intervention that continue to fester almost fifty years after the Great Powers left the Middle East and reveals how the imperialists viewed their mission.
Almost fifty years after Britain and France left the Middle East, the toxic legacies of their rule continue to fester. To make sense of today’s conflicts and crises, we need to grasp how Western imperialism shaped the region and its destiny in the half-century between 1917 and 1967.
