Abstract

This volume deals with the contemporary history of Iraq with a historical and political perspective. After a detailed analysis of the last decades of the Ottoman period, the Authors describe the "invention" of Iraq by the British colonial administration, focusing on the political reactions by the different ethno-religious communities of this region. Particular attention has been devoted to the period of Saddam Husayn and to the post-2003 invasion, with the attempt to create a "New Iraq".
