by Abbas Shiblak - £9.99 Saqi (2005)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780863565045 | ISBN 10: 0863565042
The Jews of Iraq constituted one of the oldest and most deeply rooted Jewish communities in the world. But in the early 1950s most of them left for Israel, under circumstances that remain the subject of heated controversy. Shiblak examines the critical years of the late 1940s when rifts began to appear in Iraqi society, and the sad sequence of events that finally led to the mass exodus of Jews. A landmark in the political and social history of the Middle East.
