Amatzia Baram offers an account of the development and metamorphosis of regime-sponsored national ideology in Iraq under the Ba'th Party. Ahmad Ashraf analyzes the appeal of modern conspiracy theories to Iranians, including the social, cultural, political and psychological factors contributing to their attraction to Persians.
