Abstract:

The news gives you events but rarely context. So what do al-Qaeda, North Korea, and Iran really want? Which faction is which in Iraq and who's arming whom? What's the deal with Somalia, Darfur, and Kashmir? Fatah, Hamas, and Hezbollah? Finally, here's a handy, often stunning guide to the world's recent conflicts, from the large and important to the completely absurd. Detailed with more than fifty original maps, photographs, and illustrations, Who Hates Whom summarizes more than thirty global hotspots with concise essays, diagrams, and (where possible) glimmers of kindness and hope.--From publisher description.
