Summary "In March 2003, a US-led 'Coalition of the Willing' launched a pre-emptive intervention against Iraq. The nine long years of military occupation that followed saw an ambitious project to turn Iraq into a liberal democracy, underpinned by free-market capitalism and constituted by a citizen body free to live in peace and prosperity. However, the Iraq war did not go to plan and the coalition were forced to withdraw all combat troops at the end of 2011, having failed to deliver on their promise of a democratic, peaceful and prosperous Iraq. This text seeks not only to reflect on this abject failure but to put forth the argument that key decisions and errors of judgment on the part of the coalition and the Iraqi political elite set in train a sequence of events that have had devastating consequences for Iraq, for the region and for the world"--Provided by publisher.
Contents Part I. The aftermath of war : strategic decisions and catastrophic mistakes -- Part II. Iraqi politics since Saddam -- Part III. The plight of Iraqi culture and civil society -- Part IV. Regional and International consequences of the Iraq war.
