“The Occupation: War and Resistance in Iraq” is a comprehensive examination of one of the most consequential conflicts of the 21st century. Authored by a team of esteemed scholars and journalists, this book offers a detailed analysis of the Iraq War and the subsequent insurgency against the occupying forces.

Beginning with the pretext and buildup to the invasion in 2003, the book explores the motivations and decisions of key players on both sides of the conflict, including the United States government under President George W. Bush and Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. It delves into the geopolitical dynamics that shaped the war, including the role of oil, regional alliances, and the broader context of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East.

Moreover, the book offers insights into the complex dynamics of resistance and collaboration within Iraqi society, exploring the motivations of various factions and the shifting allegiances that characterized the insurgency. It sheds light on the role of sectarianism, tribalism, and ethnic divisions in shaping the conflict, as well as the broader implications for stability and governance in post-Saddam Iraq.

“The Occupation” also examines the legacy of the Iraq War, both for the region and for global geopolitics. It assesses the impact of the conflict on U.S. credibility, the rise of jihadist extremism, and the broader implications for international security and human rights. Through meticulous research and analysis, the book provides a nuanced understanding of a complex and controversial chapter in modern history.
