British Policy in Mesopotamia, 1903-1914 by Stuart A. Cohen

Book Description

British imperial interests in Iraq during and after the First World War are well known and have often been studied. But what of British policy towards the Mesopotamian provinces before 1914? In this well-documented study, Stuart Cohen provides the first coherent account of growing British interest in these provinces, in which the defence of India, commercial considerations, the protection of Shia Muslim pilgrims and fear of a German-dominated Berlin to Baghdad railway all had a vital role to play. First published in 1976 and now available in paperback for the first time, this book is essential reading not only for an understanding of the making of British policy towards the Arab provinces of the Ottoman empire but also of the last days of Turkish rule in Iraq itself.

Divine Service? by Stuart A. Cohen Divine Service?, Hardback (July 2013)

Soldiering, which for almost two millennia was almost entirely foreign to Jewish thought and practice, has by virtue of universal conscription become a rite of passage to citizenship in the Jewish state. For practicing orthodox Jews in Israel that change generates dilemmas that are intellectual as well as behavioural.

Army of the Republic by Stuart A. Cohen Army of the Republic, Paperback (October 2009)

In a corrupt America reeling from an economic collapse, a shadow civil war is gathering. On one side is James Sands, a billionaire and government crony harassed by civil opposition and armed militants. Standing against him is Lando, a twenty-something urban guerrilla, who leads the Army of the Republic on a campaign of bombing.
