A People’s History of Iraq

Nearly 140,000 U.S. troops are currently in Iraq trying to influence Iraqi history by waging an imperialist war on behalf of U.S. corporate interests. Yet most people in the United States probably didn't learn very much about Iraqi history in their high school social studies courses. Some knowledge of pre-1950 Iraqi history may be of use to U.S. anti-war activists when arguing with opponents of an immediate withdrawal from Iraq.
