Review

..."a well-written and well-researched overview of Iraq's history...the book's perspective and interpretation are new and interesting...the volume in hand not only provides firstrate material for exploring Iraq's past and its future, but also a plausible account of how the state got where it is." The Middle East Journal

Review of the first edition: '... by far the best and most serious history of Iraq to date.' Efraim Karsh, Reviews in History

Review of the first edition: 'Tripp offers a very readable account that presents the many different political figures, the ebb and flow of central government relations with Kurds and Shiites, and the ongoing regional and international coverage.' Foreign Affairs

'Charles Tripp has produced a well-written and well-researched overview of Iraq's history ... the book's perspective and interpretation are new and interesting ... This book contains considerable food for thought ... the volume in hand not only provides first-rate material for exploring Iraq's past and its future, but also a plausible account of how the state got where it is.' The Middle East Journal

"Tripp offers a very readable account that presents the many different political figures, the ebb and flow of central government relations with Kurds and Shi'ites, and the ongoing regional and international coverage." Foreign Affairs

Book Description

To understand Iraq, Charles Tripp's history is the book to read. The updated book includes the recent American invasion, the fall of Saddam Hussein and the subsequent descent into civil strife. Tripp argues that the history of Iraq throughout the twentieth century has shaped where it is today.
