Titel: Oil and oil policy in Iraq
Sub titel: Past and present
Everyone knows that the present invasion of Iraq would not have happened if the country had no oil. Owning some of the world's largest oil resources, Iraq's oil has been the mainstay of its economy since it was founded in 1920. This book examines how oil has shaped Iraq's history, its politics and its international fortunes from 1920 until today. Covering events in chronological order, Kamil Mahdi shows how the oil industry was founded, and grew, and how it influenced Iraq's position on the international scene. Covering early oil concessions, the nationalisation of the industry, through to American occupation and development today.
