Modern Iraq is under threat from every quarter, politics play havoc with ordinary lives and sanctions cut deep. However, today's rare visitors are met with a broad hospitality that belies years of deprivation. And behind the politics is a land as rich in history and legend as any in the Middle East. Here is Mesopotamia, where three great religions - Christianity, Judaism and Islam - were born. Here are the ancient cities of Ur and Nineveh, and the site of Babylon.

From the Back Cover:

In one sense Iraq is timeless, its place names resonating across the years - for this is Mesopotamia, the Land between Two Rivers. Between the Tigris and the Euphrates, three great religions were born, and no place in the world is so steeped in ancient history. But modern Iraq is under threat from every quarter. Politics play havoc with ordinary lives; sanctions cut deep.In the face of such adversity, one could understand hostility; yet today's rare visitors are met with a broad hospitality that belies years of deprivation, and harks back to a time when this beleaguered country could show the world the meaning of the word "welcome'.Inside this guide you will find information on: history, ancient and modern; access and red tape; accommodation, restaurants and transport; traveling in Iraq, from Baghdad to the Marshlands; A to Z of archaeological sites, including Babylon and Ur; safety, security and sanctions. (5 1/4 x 8 1/2, 288 pages, color photos, maps, illustrations)
