In this analysis of Iraq's role in both the Middle East and the world throughout history, John Robertson provides a balanced account that explores the greatness and grandeur of the country's ancient empires and achievements, its contributions to the emergence of the world's enduring monotheistic faiths, and the role the great Arab caliphs of Baghdad have played in the great medieval cultural flowering that contributed so much to the European Renaissance and eventual rise of the West. Whereas most histories of Iraq shortchange the pre-modern era, this informative account is wide-ranging and extensive in its approach and will be greatly appreciated by historians, students, and all those with an interest in this diverse and enigmatic country.
