NPR Reporter Deborah Amos traveled from Amman to Beirut and Damascus, tracking across the Middle East the Sunnis who were displaced by the collapse of Saddam Hussein's Iraq. It has been the largest exile community in post-World War II history. (And now perhaps a greater on going on right now with the refugee situation). Amos shows how the region has been reinvented by the new Sunnni diaspora. Her work implicates the shortsighted American policy and also the age-old schism between Sunni and Shia and the maneuverings of meddling neighbors such as Syria. 230 pages with Index. 9 x 5.75 inches. 2011, PublicAffairs, USA
