Synopsis

The late Hanna Batatu's landmark study of Iraq's social formation during the twentieth century is widely regarded as one of the most significant works of recent times dealing with Middle Eastern society and politics. Actually three volumes in one, it is one of the few books to have received the distinction of having an entire conference held to discuss its implications, at the University of Texas at Austin in March 1989. Now back in print, this classic work has assumed a new significance in light of Iraq's recent history.

Hanna Batatu was born in 1926 in Jerusalem. He immigrated to the United States in 1948, receiving his PhD from Harvard University in 1960. Apart from research fellowships at Harvard, MIT, and Princeton, Batatu held two major teaching appointments: at the American University of Beirut (1962-81), and at Georgetown University (1982-94), where he was named Professor Emeritus upon retirement. He died in 2000.
