Editorial Reviews

Review

"Pluralism and Culture in Hashemite Iraq est à la fois un approfondissement de sa contribution à l'histoire intellectuelle de l'Irak contemporain - son champ de recherche d'origine - et une incursion dans une histoire spécifique, celle des communautés juives du monde arabe, avant et après la création de l'Etat d'Israël."—Leyla Dakhili, Le Mouvement


"...Bashkin's work is a fascinating and rich account and will become essential reading for all interested in Iraqi history .... Overall, this is a lucid, intelligent, and well-written book that will help shape the historiography of modern Iraq."—Magnus T. Bernhardsson, Williams College, TAARII Newsletter


"An important and enlightening book."—Esther Meir-Galicnstein, Israeli Sociology


"A book written to explain an earlier era sometimes takes on a new and startling relevance in a later one.... Bashkin's book not only anticipates many of the troubles encountered in Iraq today, but it also supplies a vocabulary with which to talk about them and about the breach between political theory and political practice."—Middle East Journal


"The Other Iraq opens up an entirely new perspective on the history of Iraq. No other study covers the variety and pluralism of intellectual history in a Middle Eastern society with such breadth and depth. It is a unique, unprecedented account of Iraqi writers' open-mindedness during a period when ideologies were still not fully formulated. It will usher in a change of paradigm."—Peter Wien, University of Maryland, College Park
"This unquestionably original study considers the output of a remarkably wide range of Iraqi intellectuals, assessing their views as part of an interactive intellectual community. With sharp, clear analysis, it makes several significant contributions to the study of Iraqi and Middle Eastern intellectual history."—James Jankowski, University of Colorado, Boulder
