   schema:description "Years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, a loosely organized insurgency continues to target American and Coalition soldiers, as well as Iraqi security forces and civilians, with devastating results. In this sobering account of the ongoing violence, [the author] reveals the insurgents behind the widespread revolt, their motives, and their tactics. [He] begins by placing the Iraqi revolt in its historical context. He next profiles the various insurgent groups, detailing their origins, aims, and operational and tactical modi operandi. He concludes with an unusually candid assessment of the successes and failures of the Coalition's counter-insurgency campaign. Looking ahead, [he] warns that ethnic and sectarian groups may soon be pitted against one another in what will be a fiercely contested fight over who gets what in eh new Iraq. Evidence that such a conflict is already developing does not augur well for Iraq's future stability. Both Iraw and the United States must work hard to ensure that slow but steady success over the insurgency is not overshadowed by growing ethno-sectarian animosities as various groups fight one another for the biggest slice of the political and economic pie.-Dust jacket."@en ;
