Review

We are fortunate to have scholars, such as Adeed Dawisha, who continue to grapple with Iraq's political complexities. . . . A highly accessible and insightful work on one of the most important and complex countries in the Middle East.--Eric Davis "Middle East Journal "

Dawisha's . . . reliance on the many memoirs, monographs, and histories written by Iraqis themselves, plus his own intimate knowledge of Iraq in its domestic, regional, and international setting, makes for a fine (if disheartening) study of abortive state building.--L. Carl Brown "Foreign Affairs "

Dawisha has only the worst superlatives for Saddam's tyrannical regime. . . . And yet we should not give up on Iraq, for Dawisha doesn't. He never loses his calm or objectivity.--Robert D. Kaplan "National Interest "

This book should be required reading for all those involved in building a brighter future for Iraq.--Alison Webster "European Legacy "

Adeed Dawisha's well-written and flowing book makes an important contribution to understanding the complex history of Iraq. . . . Dawisha's approach indeed provides a multidimensional, complex, and nuanced picture of the development of Iraq. . . . Dawisha's important book is recommended for anyone who is interested in the comprehensive view of Iraqi history or for anyone who is interested in Middle Eastern affairs and history.--Michael Eppel "Historian "

"Anyone who thinks that Iraq has no history of democratic government needs to read this book immediately."--Choice

"We are fortunate to have scholars, such as Adeed Dawisha, who continue to grapple with Iraq's political complexities. . . . A highly accessible and insightful work on one of the most important and complex countries in the Middle East."--Eric Davis, Middle East Journal

"Dawisha's . . . reliance on the many memoirs, monographs, and histories written by Iraqis themselves, plus his own intimate knowledge of Iraq in its domestic, regional, and international setting, makes for a fine (if disheartening) study of abortive state building."--L. Carl Brown, Foreign Affairs

"Dawisha has only the worst superlatives for Saddam's tyrannical regime. . . . And yet we should not give up on Iraq, for Dawisha doesn't. He never loses his calm or objectivity."--Robert D. Kaplan, National Interest

"This book should be required reading for all those involved in building a brighter future for Iraq."--Alison Webster, European Legacy

From the Back Cover

"Adeed Dawisha has written a deeply informed study of the history of the Iraqi state. This is a book to be read by all who care about Iraq's future."--William B. Quandt, University of Virginia

"A pleasure to read. This book is a major contribution by a scholar who has written extensively on Arab nationalism and Iraq and knows the subject well. It is grounded in thorough research, good judgment formed by working on Iraq over a long period of time, and excellent analysis of Iraq's governing institutions and their relation to society over time."--Phebe Marr, author of The Modern History of Iraq

"A new and useful approach that provides a bird's-eye view of Iraqi history mainly through three lenses: building a governing structure, molding a national identity, and legitimizing the state and the ruling elites through democratic institutions. Dawisha helps readers to better understand what went wrong in Iraq, why, and what are the roots of the present crisis."--Amatzia Baram, University of Haifa
