Intervention, Ethnic Conflict and State-building in Iraq: A Paradigm for the Post-colonial State

Front Cover
Routledge, 2008 - Political Science - 279 pages

External intervention by the U.N. and other actors in ethnic conflicts has interfered with the state-building process in post-colonial states. Rear examines the 1991 uprisings in Iraq and demonstrates how this intervention has contributed to the problems with democratization experienced in the post-Saddam era. This timely work will appeal to scholars of International Relations and Middle East studies, as well as those seeking greater insight into the current conflict in Iraq.
