About the Book
This volume offers an extensive chronological overview of the political, economic, and diplomatic relations between the United States and Iraq from 1920 to 2006.
The beginning year of the chronicle is when the U.S. was beginning to comprehend the vital importance of Iraq’s abundant oil supplies. The work continues through several major events in U.S.-Iraqi relations, including several Iraqi coups and countercoups, the U.S. response to Iraq’s invasions of Iran and Kuwait, and each country’s actions in the first Gulf War and the current Iraq War. The overview ends in December 2006, at the news of Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein’s death and the end of the Ba’athist Party regime.
