The ties between Syria and Iraq are complex and often fraught and, with both facing significant internal turmoil, their relationship is one that is central to stability in the region. James Denselow is uniquely positioned to address this pivotal aspect of politics in the Middle East, having worked in Syria for many years. He argues that today's relationship between Iraq and Syria cannot be understood outside the context of the US presence in a fragile Iraq. This book tracks the changing and tempestuous relationship between these uneasy neighbours, focusing on the run-up to and fallout from the 2003 invasion. The role of Bashar al-Asad's regime in this conflict is often overlooked, but its political ties plus Syria's geographical position made it a key player. As sovereignty is returned to an Iraq led by Nouri al-Maliki, a shared cultural history along with improved trade and security arrangements may strengthen the precarious relationship between Iraq and Syria.
