Reviews for Saddam Husayn and Islam, 1968-2003: Ba`thi Iraq from Secularism to Faith
Amatzia Baram, a distinguished historian of Saddam Hussein's Iraq, provides novel insights regarding Saddam Hussein's use of Islam in this intelligent new study... The author is a master storyteller. The book, though lengthy and scholarly, is a page-turner... Essential reading for scholars of modern Iraqi history and of Islam and politics.
