America's second war against Iraq differed notably from its first. Operation Desert Storm was a limited effort by coalition forces to drive out those Iraqi troops who had seized Kuwait six months before. In contrast, the major combat phase of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003 was a more ambitious undertaking aimed at decisively ending Saddam Hussein's rule.

Zainab Salbi ha undici anni quando suo padre viene scelto da Saddam Hussein come suo pilota personale. Da quel momento, la vita dei Salbi è legata a quella del dittatore. La madre di Zainab, la bella Alia, insegna alla figlia quello che le occorre sapere per sopravvivere: dire sempre di sì, chiudere in scatole mentali gli orrori che balenano attorno a lei. "Impara a cancellare i tuoi ricordi", le ordina. "Lui ti sa leggere negli occhi." Zainab, su insistenza della madre, riesce a sfuggire alle follie del dittatore nel più tradizionale dei modi: un matrimonio combinato con un iracheno che vive negli Stati Uniti. Ma per lei si apre soltanto un altro incubo…

For policy planners, diplomats, and political and military strategists, accurate personality profiling of leaders is a vital tool, and this fascinating book explores the latest techniques for gauging the psychological traits and behavioral tendencies of individuals and groups, with a surprising degree of predictive insight. Whether the goal is to understand a politician's motives, to assess an enemy's true threat, or to identify productive ways to approach negotiating partners, the methods presented here offer a comprehensive approach to the often thorny problem of gathering and analyzing psychological data, even with a minimum of direct evidence.

In an age when world affairs are powerfully driven by personality, politics require an understanding of what motivates political leaders such as Hussein, Bush, Blair, and bin Laden. Through exacting case studies and the careful sifting of evidence, Jerrold Post and his team of contributors lay out an effective system of at-a-distance evaluation. Observations from political psychology, psycholinguistics and a range of other disciplines join forces to produce comprehensive political and psychological profiles, and a deeper understanding of the volatile influences of personality on global affairs.
Even in this age of free-flowing global information, capital, and people, sovereign states and boundaries remain the hallmark of the international order – a fact which is especially clear from the events of September 11th and the War on Terrorism.
Jerrold M. Post, M.D., is Professor of Psychiatry, Political Psychology, and International Affairs, and Director of the Political Psychology Program at George Washington University. He is the founder of the CIA's Center for the Analysis of Personality and Political Behavior.
