Whether standing up to British occupiers, the monarchy they installed or the brutal dictatorship of Saddam Hussein - who for many years was a friend and ally of the US - the workers' movement and the Left in Iraq have a rich history of fighting for a more democratic society. This is the only book of its kind on the history of the Left and workers' movements in Iraq. It includes a valuable analysis of the Iraqi Communist Party, which now is part of the discussion about the future of an independent Iraq.
