Iraq: International Relations and National Development

By Edith and E. F. Penrose
Westview Press, 1978
569 pp. $28.75
Purchase

An excellent historical and descriptive study, drawing heavily on the work of Khadduri, Longrigg and others on the political side and on the authors' own formidable knowledge of economics and the oil industry. Sympathetic to the Iraqi people but coldly realistic about the failings of the political leadership and the inadequacies of economic policy.
