I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.
The political landscape of the Middle East has been dramatically altered because of the Iraq War. Looking at what has happened recently, what’s happening now, and what might happen in the future once American and coalition forces leave is the subject of my guest’s latest book. Gwynne Dyer is here to talk about The Mess They Made: The Middle East After Iraq. Published by McClelland and Stewart, the book retails for $21.99. Iran and Israel, and everyone else in the region will doubtless be affected. The book is incredibly readable, brisk and absorbing; as well as remarkably well researched.
