Iraq Since 1958: From Revolution to Dictatorship

by Farouk-Sluglett & Peter Sluglett - £17.99  I.B. Tauris (2001)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781860646225 | ISBN 10: 1860646220

This highly-praised work is the first to explore the emergence of modern Iraq from its foundation in 1920 into the 21st century. Its emphasis is on the period since the overthrow of the monarchy in 1958, with particular concentration on Saddam's rise to power and his consolidation as leader. The authors also explore the role & decline of the Iraqi Communist Party, Iraq's shifting policies towards the Kurds and the Shi'is, the nationalization of oil and its relations with its neighbours.
