Comment pouvons-nous accepter le drame des chrétiens d’Orient ? Comment pouvons-nous accepter l’éradication d’une culture millénaire ? La fuite des femmes et des enfants dans la chaleur et la poussière ? Sébastien de Courtois est allé à leur rencontre, en Irak, au coeur de la fournaise où il a assisté à l’impensable : des milliers de familles obligées de quitter leurs villages et leurs champs. Ce sont des Araméens, l’un des peuples oubliés par l’histoire, et aussi oubliés par le monde. De Syrie en Turquie, du Liban en Irak, mais aussi dans nos capitales, Sébastien de Courtois s’est interrogé sur l’origine de pareille tragédie sans préjugés mais aussi sans complaisance.

First published in 1989, just before the Gulf War broke out, Republic of Fear was the only book that explained the motives of the Saddam Hussein regime in invading and annexing Kuwait. This edition, updated in 1998, has a substantial introduction focusing on the changes in Hussein's regime since the Gulf War. In 1968 a coup d'état brought into power an extraordinary regime in Iraq, one that stood apart from other regimes in the Middle East. Between 1968 and 1980, this new regime, headed by the Arab Ba'th Socialist party, used ruthless repression and relentless organization to transform the way Iraqis think and react to political questions. In just twelve years, a party of a few thousand people grew to include nearly ten percent of the Iraqi population. This book describes the experience of Ba'thism from 1968 to 1980 and analyzes the kind of political authority it engendered, culminating in the personality cult around Saddam Hussein. Fear, the author argues, is at the heart of Ba'thi politics and has become the cement for a genuine authority, however bizarre. Examining Iraqi history in a search for clues to understanding contemporary political affairs, the author illustrates how the quality of Ba'thi pan-Arabism as an ideology, the centrality of the first experience of pan-Arabism in Iraq, and the interaction between the Ba'th and communist parties in Iraq from 1958 to 1968 were crucial in shaping the current regime. Saddam Hussein's decision to launch all-out war against Iran in September 1980 marks the end of the first phase of this re-shaping of modern Iraqi politics. The Iraq-Iran war is a momentous event in its own right, but for Iraq, the author argues, the war diverts dissent against the Ba'thi regime by focusing attention on the specter of an enemy beyond Iraq's borders, thus masking a hidden potential for even greater violence inside Iraq.

Découvrez enfin tout ce qu’il faut savoir sur Saddam Hussein en moins d’une heure ! Arrivé au faîte du pouvoir malgré ses origines précaires, Saddam Hussein mène l’Irak d’une main de fer pendant une vingtaine d’années. S’il reçoit au début de son règne l’appui du monde occidental afin de mettre un terme à la révolution islamique d’Iran, l’homme fort du Moyen-Orient verra très vite ses alliés se retourner contre lui. C’est que le raïs irakien a d’autres visées : dominer les pays arabes afin de faire de l’Irak la nouvelle Babylone. N’hésitant pas à mettre le Moyen-Orient à feu et à sang, il mène guerre sur guerre afin de parvenir à ses fins. La communauté internationale qui, hier encore, lui fournissait son aide n’a d’autre choix que de se retourner contre lui, et fait de lui l’ennemi public n° 1. Peu à peu, les erreurs stratégiques que commet Saddam Hussein l’amputent de son pouvoir, et l’Irak sombre dans le chaos ... Ce livre vous permettra d’en savoir plus sur : • La vie de Saddam Hussein • L’Irak avant l’accession au pouvoir de Saddam Hussein • Les temps forts de la dictature de Saddam Hussein • Les répercussions de sa dictature sur l’Irak et le monde arabe Le mot de l’éditeur : « Dans ce numéro de la collection 50MINUTES Grandes Personnalités, Mylène Théliol évoque la vie de l’un des plus grands dictateurs du XXe siècle.

Au-delà de multiples revendications de rupture, Trump bouleverse-t-il l’ordre international et la place qu’y occupent les États-Unis ? La rubrique Contrechamps de ce numéro répond : oui, au moins par sa critique radicale du multilatéralisme. Une critique qui pourrait laisser le pays bien seul en marge d’un multilatéralisme se reconstituant sans lui. Mais Trump doit aussi être vu comme un symptôme : celui de la crise d’un ordre libéral qui a, ces dernières années, divisé les peuples, les a montés les uns contre les autres, ouvrant la voie aux populismes de toute nature. L’Irak se relèvera-t-il, et comment, de décennies de dictature, d’une invasion américaine, d’une guerre civile, de la parcellisation aujourd’hui imposée entre milices, communautés, djihadistes, et influences extérieures ? Le dossier central de ce numéro s’interroge sur l’avenir de l’État irakien, capital pour une région entière où semblent avoir éclaté, ou se déliter, toutes les structures politiques en place. L’Irak « souverain, autonome et démocratique » qu’appelait de ses vœux le président Obama pourra-t-il un jour exister ? Le numéro 4/2017 de Politique étrangère éclaire d’autres grandes questions de l’actualité internationale : jusqu’où peut aller l’affrontement Corée du Nord/États-Unis ? Quel est le fond du drame yéménite, entre catastrophe militaire et désastre humanitaire ? Comment fonctionne vraiment le pouvoir iranien ? La Belgique est-elle le maillon faible de la lutte européenne contre le terrorisme ? La vitalité des think tanks chinois traduit-elle une nouvelle Grande stratégie de Pékin, pour s’ouvrir au monde et y peser ?

"Making sense of Saudi Arabia is crucially important today. The kingdom's western province contains the heart of Islam, and it is the United States' closest Arab ally and the largest producer of oil in the world. However, the country is undergoing rapid change: its aged leadership is ceding power to a new generation, and its society, dominated by young people, is restive. Saudi Arabia has long remained closed to foreign scholars, with a select few academics allowed into the kingdom over the past decade. This book presents the fruits of their research as well as those of the most prominent Saudi academics in the field. This volume focuses on different sectors of Saudi society and examines how the changes of the past few decades have affected each. It reflects new insights and provides the most up-to-date research on the country's social, cultural, economic and political dynamics"--

After a failed study mission in France, Abd al-Rahman returns home to Iraq to launch an existentialist movement akin to that of his hero. Convinced that it falls upon him to introduce his country's intellectuals to Sartre's thought, he feels especially qualified by his physical resemblance to the philosopher (except for the crossed eyes) and by his marriage to Germaine, who he claims is the great man's cousin. Meanwhile, his wealth and family prestige guarantee him an idle life spent in drinking, debauchery, and frequenting a well-known nightclub. But is his suicide an act of philosophical despair, or a reaction to his friend's affair with Germaine? A biographer chosen by his presumed friends narrates the story of a somewhat bewildered young man who like other members of his generation was searching for a meaning to his life. This parody of the abuses and extravagances of pseudo-philosophers in the Baghdad of the sixties throws into relief the Iraqi intellectual and cultural life of the time and the reversal of fortune of some of Iraq's wealthy and powerful families.

The Infuriating Tale Of A Young Palestinian Punished For Exercising His Freedom Of Speech. Like many of his generation, Waleed Al-Husseini began a blog in his twenties. However, unlike many, Waleed also had the misfortune of having been a blogger in Palestine; worse yet, he often criticized Islam and its adherents—and declared himself an apostate—in his writings. The Palestinian Authority did not take well to this and eventually put Waleed in jail without a trial or even a wisp of legal justification. As if this was not bad enough, they placed Waleed in solitary confinement. This state of affairs continued for 11 months. Over the course of this time, Waleed was tortured and suffered innumerable indignities and deprivations simply for having the audacity to speak his mind. Eventually his unjust imprisonment began to draw international attention from foreign governments and human rights organizations, which pressured the Palestinian Authority and finally forced it to provide him a trial and parole. After being paroled, Waleed fled Palestine, first to Jordan and then to France, where he has become an outspoken advocate for freedom of speech and a critic of the state of contemporary Islam. The Blasphemer is a sobering, impassioned recounting of this Kafkaesque experience as well as a searing polemic against the corruption and hypocrisy that define contemporary Palestine.

After several months of heavy fighting, Mosul has been liberated. However, this will not mark the complete defeat of IS in Iraq, nor will it signal the end of the crisis affecting the country. What will be the fate of the city and of the other liberated territories? Could this victory re-ignite competition among Iraq’s various ethno-sectarian communities? And how could this impact on the Iraqi Kurdistan region? What are the interests and agendas of the main regional and international players? This volume sketches out possible answers through a multi-pronged approach, bringing to light the complexity of the Iraqi scenario and the influence exerted over it by a broad array of internal and external actors.

Ending the U.S. war in Iraq required redeploying 100,000 military and civilian personnel; handing off responsibility for 431 activities to the Iraqi government, U.S. embassy, USCENTCOM, or other U.S. government entities; and moving or transferring ownership of over a million pieces of property in accordance with U.S. and Iraqi laws, national policy, and DoD requirements. This book examines the planning and execution of this transition.
