This comparative study analyses the traditional elite of Iraq and their sucessors - the Communists, the Bathists and Free Officers - in terms of social and economic relationships in each area of the country. The author draws on secret government documents and interviews with key figures, both in power and in prison, to produce an engrossing story of political struggle and change.

How do you solve a problem like understanding Iraq? For Hanna Batatu, the solution to this conundrum lay in generating alternative possibilities that effectively side-stepped the conventional wisdom of the time. Historians had long held that Iraq – like other artificial creations of ex-colonial European powers, who drew lines onto the world map that ignored longstanding tribal, ethnic and religious ties – was best understood by delving into its political and religious history. Batatu used the problem solving skills of asking productive questions and generating alternative possibilities to argue that Iraq’s history was better understood through the lens of a Marxist analysis focused on socio-economic history.The Old Social Classes concludes that the divisions present in Iraq – and exposed by the revolutionary movements of the 1950s – are those characterized by the struggle for control over property and the means of production. Additionally, Batatu sought to establish that the most important political movements of the time, notably the nationalist Ba'athists and the pan-Arab Free Officers Movement, had their origins in a homegrown communist ideology inspired by local conditions and local inequality. By posing new questions – and by undertaking a vast amount of research in primary sources, a rarity in the history of this region – Batatu was able to produce a strong, new solution to a longstanding historiographical puzzle.

With each day that passed after the 2003 invasion, the United States seemed to sink deeper in the treacherous quicksand of Iraq's social discord, floundering in the face of deep ethno-sectarian divisions that have impeded the creation of a viable state and the molding of a unified Iraqi identity. Yet as Adeed Dawisha shows in this superb political history, the story of a fragile and socially fractured Iraq did not begin with the American-led invasion--it is as old as Iraq itself. Dawisha traces the history of the Iraqi state from its inception in 1921 following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire and up to the present day. He demonstrates how from the very beginning Iraq's ruling elites sought to unify this ethnically diverse and politically explosive society by developing state governance, fostering democratic institutions, and forging a national identity. Dawisha, who was born and raised in Iraq, gives rare insight into this culturally rich but chronically divided nation, drawing on a wealth of Arabic and Western sources to describe the fortunes and calamities of a state that was assembled by the British in the wake of World War I and which today faces what may be the most serious threat to survival that it has ever known. Featuring Dawisha's insightful new afterword on recent political developments, Iraq is required reading for anyone seeking to make sense of what's going on in Iraq today, and why it has been so difficult to create a viable government there.

In October 2008, the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies at Georgetown University invited prominent scholars of Iraq to reflect upon the lessons of Hanna Batatu's legendary work, "The Old Social Classes and the Revolutionary Movements of Iraq" (Princeton University Press, 1979) and test his arguments against the developments of the last 30 years. The conference was designed to explore three facets of Batatu's scholarship: his contribution to current understandings of Iraqi history; his categories of analysis as applied to Iraqi sociopolitical affairs; and his influence (or lack thereof) on portrayals of Iraq by non-academic producers of knowledge in think tanks, the U.S. government, and the American mass media. This volume is the end result. We are pleased to present the seven essays contained herein as contributions to the scholarly conversation about Iraq at this fraught moment in the country's history and as a tribute to a gentle and brilliant man who surely would have helped us all to understand the moment better." -- p.4 cover

Europa Der Vaterl Nder

Ein neues Jahrtausend hat begonnen, das Jahrtausend der großen politischen Einheiten. Amerika gegen China, Indien gegen die muslimische Welt, Russland gegen den Westen. Globale Supermächte treffen aufeinander und versuchen ihre Interessen und kulturellen Vorstellungen durchzusetzen oder aber zu verteidigen. In diesem Kampf der Giganten steht das heutige Europa zerstritten und uneins da. Diejenigen, die sich selbst „gute Europäer" nennen, geben dafür oft den europäischen Nationalstaaten die Schuld. Denn diese wehren sich immer wieder gegen eine weitere Zentralisierung der Europäischen Union und stehen damit dem Wunsch vieler EU-Bürokraten nach einem europäischen Zentralstaat im Wege. In seinem Buch „Europa der Vaterländer" wirft Markus Willinger genau diesen EU-Bürokraten Kurzsichtigkeit und Einfallslosigkeit vor. Er erklärt, dass ein europäischer Staat angesichts der kulturellen, sprachlichen und wirtschaftlichen Vielfalt Europas weder möglich noch wünschenswert sei. Anstatt Staatsmodelle aus dem Ausland zu übernehmen, müssten die Europäer aufgrund ihrer Einzigartigkeit eine ganz eigene Form des Zusammenlebens finden. Die Europäische Union verwirft Willinger als ein gescheitertes Modell, das der Einheit Europas nicht nützt, sondern dieser sogar schadet. Dem Autor zufolge muss die Europäische Union so schnell wie möglich aufgelöst und durch einen Staatenbund freier, europäischer Nationalstaaten, also durch ein Europa der Vaterländer, ersetzt werden. In 32 scharfen Kapiteln erklärt Willinger wie ein solches Europa aussehen könnte, und wie es im Gegensatz zur heutigen EU oder eines europäischen Staates organisiert wäre. Dabei ist dieses Buch keineswegs eine trockene Analyse. Aus jedem Wort und jedem Satz spricht die Leidenschaft des Autors und seine Liebe zu dem, was er das wahre Europa nennt. Willinger kritisiert die EU-Bürokraten und ihr politisches Scheitern rücksichtslos und zögert dabei nicht auch harte Worte zu gebrauchen. Er beschränkt sich dabei aber jedoch nicht auf simple Kritik, sondern erstellt selbst die Leitlinien für ein neues Europa. Markus Willinger, geboren 1992, studierte Politikwissenschaft und Geschichte. Er ist Mitarbeiter beim international tätigen Verlag Arktos Media und veröffentliche im Jahr 2013 sein politisches Manifest „Die identitäre Generation", welches bislang in 6 Sprachen übersetzt wurde.
