Sold out? : US foreign policy, Iraq, the Kurds, and the Cold War by Bryan R Gibson( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyzes the ways in which US policy toward Iraq was dictated by America's broader Cold War strategy between 1958 and 1975. While most historians have focused on 'hot' Cold War conflicts such as Cuba, Vietnam, and Afghanistan, few have recognized Iraq's significance as a Cold War battleground. This book argues that US decisions and actions were designed to deny the Soviet Union influence over Iraq and to create a strategic base in the oil-rich Gulf region. Using newly available primary sources and interviews, this book reveals new details on America's decision-making toward and actions against Iraq during the height of the Cold War and shows where Iraq fits into the broader historiography of the Cold War in the Middle East. Further, it raises important questions about widely held misperceptions of US-Iraqi relations, such as the CIA's alleged involvement in the 1963 Ba'thist coup and the theory that the US sold out the Kurds in 1975
The Iran-Iraq War : new international perspectives by Nigel John Ashton( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers a wide-ranging examination of the Iran-Iraq War (1980-88), featuring fresh regional and international perspectives derived from recently available new archival material. Three decades ago Iran and Iraq became embroiled in a devastating eight-year war which served to re-define the international relations of the Gulf region. The Iran-Iraq War stands as an anomaly in the Cold War era; it was the only significant conflict in which the interests of the United States and Soviet Union unwittingly aligned, with both superpowers ultimately supporting the Iraqi regime. <I

9 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book seeks to answer a number of important questions and dispel many of the myths surrounding the Iran-Iraq conflict. The most direct question posed by the research asks what was the American policy toward the Iran-Iraq War? This question broadly defines the parameters of the research and limits the scope to understanding the American policy toward the war and provides clarity about America's intentions, objectives, and decisions during the eight-year-long Iran-Iraq war
