The Iraq War

Item Details

Book News
The 24 chapters presented by the editors (both professors of international relations at the U. of St. Andrews, Scotland) collectively review the causes and consequences of the US-UK invasion of Iraq, largely from the perspective of positivist international relations. Following an overview chapter, 15 contributions focus the individual countries' reactions to the invasion providing discussions of the key global actors--the US, the UK, France, Germany, Russia, Central and Eastern Europe, Japan, and Canada--and the key regional actors--Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, the Palestinians, Iran, Israel, and Turkey. These are followed by a section on "context and consequences," discussing the impact on Iraq, the role of Islamic militancy, oil and the global economy, the role of the United Nations, and the role of international law and ethics. The final pair of chapters discusses the implications of the war for international relations theory. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
