Four Centuries of Modern Iraq
In 1925, when this book was originally published, no adequate resource on the recent history of Iraq existed. While the author acknowledges the work of historians on the period before the early sixteenth century, here he focuses on the least studied period, after that time, and up to the early twentieth century. The author uses the knowledge of local scholars and the experience of his long residence in Iraq to discuss the country's turbulent history. He concludes that at the time of writing - the early twentieth century - Iraq had made little progress since the sixteenth century.
