Few countries can claim to have endured such a difficult and tortuous history as that of Iraq. Its varied peoples have had to contend with externally imposed state-building at the end of the First World War through to the rise of authoritarian military regimes to the all-encompassing power of Saddam Hussein's dictatorship. They have endured destructive wars internationally-imposed sanctions and a further bout of destabilizing regime change and subsequent state-building from 2003. The recent rise of the Islamic State the consolidation of the Kurdistan Region and the response of the Shi'i populace have brought the country to a de facto partition that may bring about Iraq's final demise. The second edition of Iraq: People History Politics provides a comprehensive analysis of the political societal and economic dynamics that have governed Iraq's modern development. Situating recent events within a longer historical timeframe this book is a must-read for anyone wanting to understand the deep histories that underpin the contemporary politics of this war-torn and troubled state.
