Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In response to current events, Charles Tripp has updated his incisive book A History of Iraq to include developments as recent as mid-2002. Since its establishment by the British in the 1920s, Iraq has witnessed the rise and fall of successive authoritarian regimes, competing ruthlessly for power and resources. This struggle culminated in the dictatorship of Saddam Husain, who still maintains his grip over a fragmented and increasingly isolated society. Tripp's book traces Iraq's political history from its nineteenth-century roots in the Ottoman empire, to the development of the state, its transformation from monarchy to republic and the rise of the Ba'th party and the ascendancy and current rule of Saddam Husain. This is a story of social conflict, of power struggles between rival clans, of hostility and wars with neighboring states, as well as of their aftermath, and Iraq's deteriorating relations with the West. A History of Iraq offers incisive analysis of the making of a modern state and how it creates its own distinctive politics. Charles Tripp is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Political Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. He is the co-author of Iran-Saudi Arabia Relations and Regional Order (Oxford, 1997) and Iran and Iraq at War (Westview, 1998).

Book News Annotation:

A political history of Iraq in which the primary historical force is seen as the relationship between the central state and the narratives used by Iraqis to justify their political engagement over time. Through the eras of British mandate, tribal monarchy, Arab nationalism, and the control of the Saddam Hussein's Ba'ath party has been a tendency for politics to be seen mainly as way of disciplining the population to conformity with the rulers' visions of social order, argues Tripp (political studies, U. of London, UK). He looks at relationships between the state and competing visions of Shi'i politics, Arab nationalism, communist parties, Kurdish separatists, and others. Relatively less attention is paid to the impacts of outside powers.
