Abstract

This is a revealing study of life after Saddam in Iraq, including the wide-reaching negative effects of US efforts to establish democracy there. Even today, most Americans can not understand just why the fighting continues in Iraq, whether the nation should be involved there now, and how tactics could be changed to help establish a lasting peace in the face of what many fear is a coming full-fledged civil war. In the book at hand, author Victoria Fontan gives us pointed insights into the emotions of Iraq's people, and specifically how democratization has in that country come to be associated with humiliation. Including interviews with common people in Iraq, this work makes clear how laudable intentions do not always bring the desired result when it comes to international conflict and cross-cultural psychology.
