Recommends it for: military philes
Shelves: conflict
an in depth academic piece uncovering the reasons for the conflict. not heavy, not boring, only clear concise interesting fact. didn't have the chance to get all the way through, but have re-requested from the local library (only pud whackers buy books).

delves into political, economic, social, religious, aspects of both countries' lives.
