Having endured a generation of devastating conflict under Saddam Hussein and in the chaos following his overthrow in 2003, Iraq may now be gearing up for another generation of violence. The potential consequences for Iraq, the region, and the world are incalculable. What drives this conflict? Where do the sources of this ongoing instability lie? What options do Iraqis have to bring stability to their country? What levers does the international community have to help them? These are the questions this volume seeks to address.
