The catastrophic story of how the Arab world has descended into chaos since the 2003 invasion of Iraq as told by the National Book Critics Circle Award finalist and international bestselling author of Lawrence in Arabia, a probing and insightful work of reportage.

From world-renowned war correspondent, Scott Anderson, comes this gripping, human account of the unraveling of the Arab world, the rise of ISIS, and the global refugee crisis after the United States invasion of Iraq in 2003. This

portrait of the region is framed by the stories of six individuals—the matriarch of a dissident Egyptian family, a Libyan Air Force cadet with divided loyalties, an Iraqi day-laborer turned ISIS fighter, a Kurdish doctor on leave from his practice to fight ISIS, a college student caught in the chaos of Aleppo, and an Iraqi women’s rights

activist targeted by militias. Through these personal stories, the myriad, complex causes of the widespread war and instability in the region come into focus and the concrete reality of the unspeakable tragedies occurring in the Middle East becomes clear.

GROUNDBREAKING JOURNALISM: Fractured Lands first appeared in a special issue of The New York Times Magazine devoted solely to the article. It generated a tremendous response worldwide. It led to interviews with Anderson on PBS, Bloomberg, Democracy Now!, and Huffington Post. The Signal edition will be an expanded, updated version

featuring 20% new material and a new preface by the author.

AUTHOR: Scott Anderson is a renowned war correspondent, who has reported on conflicts all over the world. His most recent book, Lawrence in Arabia, was a national bestseller and has sold over 20,000 copies across all formats.

TIMELY: In light of the emergence of ISIS, the atrocities in Aleppo, a new President in the White House, and the global refugee crisis, it’s more important than ever to understand the causes that led to this quagmire.

ACADEMIC MARKETING: Anderson’s authoritative, on-the-ground reporting is perfect for students and professors who want to understand the modern Middle East and how we got to this calamitous situation.

PHOTOS: Our edition will include black and white photos by Paolo Pellegrin.

Praise for Fractured Lands

“Scott Anderson provides a sweeping look at the Middle East, through portraits of subjects from Iraq, Syria, Egypt and Libya…. Anderson’s compelling profiles of the courageous and confused people trying to survive in harrowing times, and his insights into the tragic consequences of decisions by leaders in the region and outside, draw us back in. Great

journalism has the power to create conversations, painful as they may be, that will help shape public policy where there are no easy answers.”—World Politics Review

“Wonderfully written…. An important read.”—National Review
