When US troops entered Baghdad in 2003, they became the latest participants in a drama stretching back 13 centuries. The 'City of Peace', seat of a glittering Islamic civilization and home to astronomers, mathematicians, poets and musicians, has often been one of the most violent places on Earth. This compelling new history - the first in English for almost a century - examines Baghdad's changing fortunes, from its foundation by the caliph al-Mansur to Saddam Hussein.
