The book is called "al-Zilzal" (The Earthquake). Table of contents and precis are at: http://www.nahrain.com/d/culture/zilzal/ (author usually transliterated as Salihi or Salhi not Salahi) I haven't read the book (and would be interested in hearing from anyone who has, too), but it was praised by David J. Scheffer, US Ambassador-at-Large for War Crimes Issues, for being "one of courage and hope for the people of Iraq". http://www.fas.org/news/iraq/2000/09/iraq-000918.htm Given that Salihi was leading an armoured brigade for the Iraqi state against the uprising (as he did again in March 1995, against the INC's slight uprising), whatever does Scheffer mean?
