Iraq - From War to a New Authoritarianism

LSE IDEAS Book Launch 

Date: Monday 21 January 2013 
Time: 6.30-8pm 
Venue: Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building
Speaker:  Dr Toby Dodge 
Chair: Professor Arne Westad

The 2003 invasion of Iraq was undertaken to dismantle a regime that had long threatened its own population and regional peace, as well as to establish a stable, democratic state in the heart of the Middle East. Toby Dodge analyses the evolution of the insurgency, the descent into civil war and the 'surge' as a counter-insurgency strategy and examines US and Iraqi efforts to reconstruct the state's military and civilian capacity. 

Dr Toby Dodge is author of Iraq - From War to a New Authoritarianism, Deputy Director of LSE IDEAS and Reader in International Relations at the LSE.
