      1. This book considers the long history of British and US involvement (military, economic, and cultural) in the Middle East through the lens of the current ‘war on terror’ and the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. This historical background insists on understanding the continuity of incursions into the Middle East by western powers. See in particular Section 1 The Colonial Present, Section 2 Architectures of Enmity, and Section 8 Boundless War.
