|Author: Gareth Stansfield and Liam Anderson
Translator: Abdul Ilah Al-Naimi
|This important text provides the most in-depth analysis on Kirkuk, Iraq Ė believed by many to be the ultimate prize sought after by Iraqi Arabs and Kurds. The inevitably confrontation could disrupt the political scene, and undermine the fragile political consensus. This book, which includes results from important demographical and political surveying in Kirkuk, provides an analytical study of issues crossing the local, regional, national, and even international level. Ultimately, the analysis is both cautious and bold and based on scientific impartiality, exploring potential scenarios and possible solutions.
The authors, Stansfield and Anderson, have become prominent academics on Iraq. In this work, they provide rich opportunities for continued political analysis of Kirkuk, an important determinant of Iraqís future.
