نتاج البحث: نشر في مجلةمقالةمراجعة النظراء


The lines dividing history, ideology, and politics are thinly drawn. Researchers of Iraq have observed that over the years institutions and ideological movements, both inside the country and in the West, have "hijacked" the country's history. The Iraqi state's grand narratives have excluded competing histories from the days of Sati' al-Husri, the "father of Iraqi education," who introduced Arab history into the curriculum in order to foster Arab nationalism, up to the massive project of rewriting Iraqi history under the Ba'th regime. Western interests, too, from the time of the British-backed monarchy until the present day, have influenced the writing of Iraqi history - utilizing it in a way that would justify their foreign policies.
