Environmental destruction of wetlands and no regard for the place they live--sounds like a modern issue, but it's not. "Wetlands of Mass Destruction: Ancient Presage for Contemporary Ecocide in Southern Iraq" is an examination of the fact that environmental destruction, especially in Iraq, is nothing new. Ancient Mesopotamian warlords used to do the same things that would make environmentalists cringe, some of which can be drawn to the line of the most recent Mesopotamian Warlord in Saddam Hussein. An eye opening look that the ancient world wasn't as innocent in affairs of the green than one would think, "Wetlands of Mass Destruction: Ancient Presage for Contemporary Ecocide in Southern Iraq" is an essential edition to any ecological history shelf.
