  • up-to-date coverage of all areas of Iraqi policy, ranging from oil and the economy to the constitution, security, and elections
  • thoughtful analysis of past mistakes, current choices & opportunities, and tactical & strategic courses of action in Iraq—a key Middle Eastern country and a major US foreign policy partner

An exciting new supplement for courses or seminars on constitutional, international, and comparative law, Iraq: Guide to Law and Policy offers fascinating insight into the historical and contemporary issues, law, and policy that shape the relationship between Iraq and the United States.
