Description

In Baghdad: City of Peace, City of Blood, celebrated young travelwriter-historian Justin Marozzi gives us a many-layered history of one of the world's truly great cities - both its spectacular golden ages and its terrible disasters

Praise for the UK edition of Baghdad "An epic history"--The Economist "[An] epic biography of the city... Marozzi feasts his reader in every sumptuous detail."--The Times "Vivid and compelling...the best account we have in English"--Hugh Kennedy, Literary Review "A tremendous narrative history... A great achievement: brave, densely researched, authoritative, vivid"--Sunday Times "Marozzi gets to the unchanging sould of his city."--The Guardian "Brilliant, evocative, and erudite...a work of love and an homage to the city"--The Spectator "Superb history...a gripping account"--Daily Telegraph "Adventurous, sophisticated, respectful...a truly splendid work of erudition, storytelling, and huamnity"--Standpoint Kirkus Reviews, 10/15/14 "Pertinent, patient study of the tumultuous history of this strategic city since its founding ...a useful, relevant history of a 'relentlessly tempestuous' city." Booklist, 11/15/14, starred review "Marozzi pays tribute to the endurance and vibrancy of the city and its citizens...in this fine combination of history and travel genres"
