“Fractured Lands: How the Arab World Came Apart“: NYT Mag Examines Region Since 2003 U.S. Invasion

12 August 2016

As conflicts from Iraq to Syria have forced a record 60 million people around the world to flee their homes and become refugees, we speak with Scott Anderson about his in-depth new report, “Fractured Lands: How the Arab World Came Apart.”

Occupying the entire print edition of this week’s New York Times Magazine, it examines what has happened in the region in the past 13 years since the the U.S. invaded Iraq through the eyes of six characters in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Iraq and Iraqi Kurdistan. Anderson is also author of the book, “Lawrence in Arabia: War, Deceit, Imperial Folly and the Making of the Modern Middle East.”

Sophia Jones writes from Iraq of how those fleeing ISIS often trade one prison for another in Iraqi Kurdistan.
