Overview

On July 14, 1958, with the fall of the Hashemite monarchy in Iraq, a chapter of Iraq's history ended. In the wake of this revolution – a revolution which eventually brought to power the Ba'th party of Saddam Hussein – the ancient régime of Iraq found itself both persecuted and imprisoned. Fadhel Jamali, a former foreign minister and prime minister of Iraq, was no exception. In this remarkable first-hand account of his time in power he reveals the diplomatic wrangling at the heart of the Iraqi monarchist regime, and offers incisive analysis of Iraq's role at both regional and international levels. Providing an examination of a period during which the idea of a pan-Arab struggle, with President Gamal Abdul Nasser of Egypt as its figurehead, was at the top of political agendas, he offers a unique point of view of Iraq's relations with the rest of the Arab world and the wider Middle East, as well as its policies towards the nascent Israeli state and the newly-created Palestine ""problem."" As the signatory of the United Nations Charter in the name of Iraq, Fadhel Jamali's recollections paint a lively picture of international relations after World War II, in the formative years of the Cold War.
