Editorial Reviews


A serious and sophisticated work of political history...Highly recommended.

(Choice 1900-01-00)

Sluglett's book remains the best general introduction to the early history of modern Iraq and it is good that it is now available again.

(D.K. Fieldhouse The International History Review 1900-01-00)

An engaging and lucid portrait.

(Priya Satia H-Albion)


Peter Sluglett's book is mandatory reading not only by scholars but by everyone interested in the present-day invasion of Iraq and its extraordinary consequences.

(William Roger Louis, University of Texas at Austin)|

A first-class piece of scholarship, original, meticulous in its historical narrative and imaginative in its analytical approach. As well as being an outstanding historical account, Britain in Iraq now serves as a timely reminder of some of the pitfalls and ambiguities of nation building, whether in Iraq or elsewhere.

(Charles Tripp, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London)
