Kurdistan is what America wanted Iraq to be.
It's America's reward.
Hundreds of thousands of Kurds were murdered under the tyrannical regime of Saddam Hussein. Some four thousand Kurdish villages were destroyed. Betrayed again and again by the nations of the world, the Kurds were as decimated as any people in history.
Then came the Kurdish Miracle, that combination of ancient wisdom and modern economic genius that is now making the Kurdish homeland one of the most prosperous places on earth. Many experts predict that this homeland will soon be the world's newest nation.
Stephen Mansfield witnessed much of this history. In these pages he has turned the skills that have made him a New York Times best-selling author upon the Kurdish story. He has captured the agony and the determination, the horror and the genius of one of the most remarkable stories of our time.

In the late 1980s Saddam Hussein waged a traditional and chemical weapons war on his own people in the Kurdistan region. Entire cities were wiped out and Kurdistan was devastated. Today, Kurdistan – the Dubai of Iraq – shines as a beacon of possibility for the rest of Iraq and
a miracle to the world. So transformed is the region that the New York Times, National Geographic Traveler, and Conde Nast all tout it as among the most enjoyable and important places for tourists to visit in the second decade of the new millennium. Mansfield unveils the littleknown
story of America’s role – including America’s churches – in the recovery and restoration of Kurdistan.
