Exploring the key historical, political, and social underpinnings, James DeFronzo analyzes the impact of this defining war in the Middle East. The Iraq War explains the compelling and interrelated sociological and political forces that led to war, accounting for important aspects of the occupation, the development of the resistance, and the conflict's influence on other nations. Beyond a systematic study of the invasion, occupation, and the future of the U.S.- Iraq relationship, DeFronzo also covers the early history of Iraq, the British mandate, the antimonarchy revolution, and the influence of the Saddam Hussein regime and its wars (the Iran) Iraq War, the invasion of Kuwait, and the Persian Gulf War. The Iraq War provides a probing analysis of the underlying factors that devastated Iraq, shook the American political system, and helped shape political developments around the world.
