This work is an account of Anglo-Iraqi relations from Britain's reconquest of Iraq in 1941 until the end of the immediate post-Second World War period in 1950. In particular, it shows how Britain reasserted its dominant position in Iraq during the war and attempted to maintain this position after the conflict when, under the pressure of nationalist sentiment in Iraq and manpower and financial constraints at home, and in accordance with its treaty obligations, it had withdrawn all of its ground troops. Thus, not only does this book describe an important episode in the fairly rapid disintegration of British hegemony in the Middle East after the war, it also examines the possibilities and limitations of indirect rule. Finally, it is the story of how the ruling class of a recently independent Arab nation struggled to free itself from the lingering grip of a major European power while still preserving sufficiently close ties with that power to ensure its external security and internal control.

This book is a continuation of Daniel Silverfarb's earlier study of Anglo-Iraqi relations covering the years 1929-41. Silverfarb's work focuses on the important issues that affected bilateral Anglo-Iraqi relations from 1941-50, a time when Britain excised a certain amount of influence over Iraq.

The Twilight of British Ascendancy in the Middle East: A Case Study of Iraq, 1941-1950. More specifically I am interested in the manifestation of this process in the later Jewish wisdom literature, belonging to what is variously defined as deuterocanonical or apocryphal literature, in Catholicism and Protestantism, respectively. As J. Marböck has remarked, wisdom and in particular biblical wisdom literature involves a vivid confrontation with the world, a debate on the fundamental questions of human existence. 1 Subsequently, wisdom literature also reflects the new insights gained from such a confrontation.
