A Bibliography of the Iran-Iraq Borderland
Richard N. Schofield
Middle East & North African Studies Press
The Iran-Iraq war that broke out in September 1980 served as a reminder that the long-standing conflict on Iran’s western frontier remains a potent source of friction. This volume offers an extensive working bibliography not simply of the border war, but of the many aspects of history, topography & ethnology of the two states. A thorough-going compilation of materials that deals with the borderland regions of both Iran & Iraq has been undertaken with a view to widening knowledge of the many varied sources on this bitterly contested region which lies in the heart of the Middle East oil producing area.
