Britain's War in Iraq

Patrick Porter

  • a unique focus on one issue -- why Britain invaded -- and why it matters
  • one of the first books to write an account of the decision to go to war in Iraq in 2003 post-Chilcot Report
  • lively and engaging account with a strong argument that counters a lot of received opinion
  • grounded in publicly available sources, supplying a wealth of evidence while also enabling the reader to judge for themselves
  • timed for the 15th anniversary year, when there is likely to be increased interest in the subject
  • integrates discussion of its major case (Iraq) with a wider historical and theoretical argument
