St. Martin's Press, 1991 - History - 196 pages
This book explores how, to complement severe repression and economic incentives, culture and the reinterpretation of history have been used by the Ba'th regime in its quest to impose its rule, back its foreign adventures and cement national unity among Iraq's diverse ethnic and religious communities, and to strengthen the local Iraqi identity.
