The New Iraq
Joseph Braude
Price: $ 16

"An insider's guide to Iraqi culture.... The book's many vignettes of daily life will be engrossing for U.S. readers curious about this undiscovered country."-Slate.com

Saddam Hussein's regime has fallen, but still too easily we overlook the most vital aspect of Iraq's reconstruction: the Iraqi people themselves. In The New Iraq, Joseph Braude tells the story of a country in flux.

The New Iraq's riveting portrayal of Iraqi society sheds light on a world unknown to Westerners due to the country's decade-long international isolation. It confronts the challenges that lie ahead, outlining the transformation of Iraq's political system and military, its business and industry, its entertainment and media, and its religion and educational system. Impressively researched and cogently argued, The New Iraq challenges all of us, from many countries and walks of life, to help reintegrate Iraq into the world community.

Author Biography: Born to an Iraqi-Jewish family, Joseph Braude studied Near Eastern languages at Yale and Arabic and Islamic history at Princeton. Fluent in Arabic, Persian, and Hebrew, he is a business consultant to governments and corporations on the Middle East. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
