Used- Very Good condition

SKU: dsab-1390-9780521702478 Categories: ,


A used book that has been read but is still in great condition. To understand Iraq Charles Tripp’s history is the book to read. Since its first appearance in 2000 it has become a classic in the field of Middle East studies read and admired by students soldiers policymakers and journalists. The book is now updated to include the recent American invasion the fall and capture of Saddam Hussein and the subsequent descent into civil strife. What is clear is that much that has happened since 2003 was foreshadowed in the account found in this book. Tripp’s thesis is that the history of Iraq throughout the twentieth-century has made it what it is today but also provides alternative futures. Unless this is properly understood many of the themes explored in this book – patron-client relations organized violence sectarian ethnic and tribal difference – will continue to exert a hold over the future of Iraq as they did over its past.
