Description: When John and Mildred Adams arrived in Baghdad in 1955 with their two small children to teach in a girls' college there, Iraq was enjoying a rare period of comparative peace, prosperity, and progress. A new nation, a constitutional monarchy created by England from three Ottoman provinces just after World War I, Iraq was still only superficially united, torn by political and religious tensions. But the liberal, pro-Western monarchy and the pervasive Western influence had endured, and the abundant flow of Iraq's oil was supporting the government's efforts to improve every area of life in Iraq. who cold have predicted the tragic events that would soon sweep that vibrant world away? - the bloody revolution of 1958, the repressive rule od Saddam Hussein, the Persian Gulf War, the sanctions, the preemptive was of 2003 amd its turbulent aftermath, and throughout those years, the emigration and exile of millions of Iraqi people. This lively memoir ( a sequel to Harding's Waking Up In Egypt) will increase modern readers' understanding of Iraq and their sympathy for the long suffering Iraqi people.
