Forthcoming from Palgrave Macmillan
Painter Jr, Borden W. Mussolini's Rome: Rebuilding the Eternal City. Forthcoming from Palgrave Macmillan Publishing Company in July 2005
Sometimes when we run across an interesting/unusual/informative book, especially an older or out-of-print one, we like to bring it to your attention. Here's one:
Hamdi, Walid M.S. Rashid Ali al-Gailani: The Nationalist Movement in Iraq 1939-1941: A Political and Military Study of the British Campaign in Iraq and the National Revolution of May 1941. London: Darf Publishers, 1987
Although Rashid Ali receives first billing in the title, this book is really about diplomatic maneuvering and military operations as seen through British, German, and Iraqi eyes. Hamdi utilizes sources in Arabic as well as British and German archives, enabling him to compose the best picture we've seen of the Iraqi side of the equation, especially the organization and operations of Baghdad's armed forces. Quite a little gem.
