We haven't seen the book itself yet, but the advertising card looks interesting. Aspen Publishers has a new book by Chibli Mallat (University of Utah and St. Joseph's University, Lebanon) on "Iraq -- Guide to Law and Policy." It's 500 pages long and is promoted as a complement for courses on constitutional, international, or comparative law. That seems a bit long to me to really be useful as a supplement, but perhaps the publication of the book will prompt some law schools to offer a seminar course on the subject. The ISBN number is 978-0-7355-8484-6, and you can click here to visit the website for the publisher. The book examines "the success and failures of the law and policy implemented since the 2003 change of regime in Iraq."
