BABYLON BURNING: A GRAPHIC HISTORY OF THE MAKING OF THE MODERN MIDDLE EAST
The United States has a long and troubling history of military and political intervention in the Middle East.
This involvement has led to terrible consequences for the people of the region. Much of the of the area’s conflict and instability has origins in this past - a past little discussed in the west.
Babylon Burning documents some of the key events of US and western intervention in the Middle East and other parts of the world.
Through the medium of the graphic novel, this often esoteric history is made more accessible to a wider number of people. Using words and pictures, the author exposes the misuse and abuse of power. This book is a challenge to American foreign policy and those who promote its expansionist history and agenda.
