This is a concise, readable, yet rigorous history of Iraq since the end of the Iran-Iraq War and the Cold War to the present day by a well-regarded and serious Iraqi intellectual. Abdullah takes the reader through a chronological journey, exploring how Hussein came to power, the consequences of the Iran-Iraq war; how Hussein's regime developed; the war in Kuwait; the devastation of Iraqi society under international sanctions; the US and allies' invasion; the future implications for Iraqi society. Abdullah undercuts the widespread view that Iraq as a nation state is an artificial construct. Finally, the book also explores the relationship between Iraq's economy and the 'globalized' economy of the post-1989 period.

Thabit Abdullah is an Associate Professor in the Department of History at the University of York, Toronto, Canada.

global history of the present
Series editor | Nicholas Guyatt
In the Global History of the Present series, historians address theupheavals in world history since 1989, as we have lurched from theCold War to the War on Terror. Each book considers the uniquestory of an individual country or region, refuting grandiose claimsof ‘the end of history’, and linking local narratives to internationaldevelopments.Lively and accessible, these books are ideal introductions to thecontemporary politics and history of a diverse range of countries.By bringing a historical perspective to recent debates and events,from democracy and terrorism to nationalism and globalization,the series challenges assumptions about the past and the present.
