About this title:
Synopsis:
This is a concise, readable, yet rigorous history of Iraq since the end of the Iran-Iraq War and the Cold War to the present day by a well-regarded and serious Iraqi intellectual. Abdullah takes the reader through a chronological journey, exploring how Hussein came to power, the consequences of the Iran-Iraq war; how Hussein's regime developed; the war in Kuwait; the devastation of Iraqi society under international sanctions; the US and allies' invasion; the future implications for Iraqi society. Abdullah undercuts the widespread view that Iraq as a nation state is an artificial construct. Finally, the book also explores the relationship between Iraq's economy and the 'globalized' economy of the post-1989 period.

Book Description: ZED BOOKS LTD, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 212 x 136 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. This book is a concise, readable, yet rigorous narrative of the recent history of Iraq. It describes the transformations within the country, placing the people of Iraq at the centre of the changes which began with the invasion of Kuwait in 1990, and ended with the current American occupation. It tells the story of the country in chronological order, with detours to explore themes such as the role of oil, the nature of Saddam Husayn s state, the social impact of sanctions, the roots of sectarian divisions, and the question of the artificiality of Iraq s borders. Concluding with a critical look at simplistic notions of Iraqi social divisions, it argues that there is a basis for national unity which might yet bring the country out of its current crisis.
