Opis produktu:

  • A unique collection of essays highlighting Iraq’s social, political and military history from a purely Iraqi perspective

Dr. Ali al-Wardi (1913-1995) attended the American University of Beirut in 1943 and then travelled to the United States to attain his Masters and Doctorate degrees in Sociology at the University of Texas in 1948 and 1950 respectively. He would return to Iraq and spend a career teaching; however his main legacy is a multi-volume work in Arabic that began to be published in late 1951 and ended in the early 1970s with his eighth book. It is a two decade work that highlights the history of Iraq from the arrival of the Ottomans to the monarchy of King Feisal I in 1925. 

Wardi’s volumes are read by a wide variety of Iraqi society, and this volume is an introduction to this pivotal Arabic work for English readers. It brings alive how the Ottomans, British and Safavid Persians dealt with sectarianism in Iraq and the battles fought over key areas. It is required reading for those with an interest in or who are deploying to Iraq. 

Wardi's work also discusses the dynamics of the 1920 Revolt, a year long insurgency against the British that was only satisfied when London engineered a political solution to its advantage. That solution became the imposition of a monarchy under King Feisal of Iraq, who was not Iraqi. The monarchy would topple in 1958 and see the rise of Baathism.

Cdr. Youssef H. Aboul-Enein is a U.S. Navy Medical Service Corps Commander and Middle East Foreign Area Officer. He currently is Adjunct Military Professor and Chair of Islamic Studies at the Industrial College of the Armed Forces, and is author of Militant Islamist Ideology: Understanding the Global Threat.
