Dr. Wichhart Publishes Book

College of Arts and Sciences

Dr. Stefanie Wichhart, Professor of History, has authored the book Britain, Egypt, and Iraq during World War II : The Decline of Imperial Power in the Middle East, which is available from NU Library in two formats. We have a print copy, currently located in our New Book Display on the main floor. An electronic copy is also available through our Ebook Central database (PurplePass login required if off-campus).

This book looks at World War II through the lens of the British Embassies in Cairo and Baghdad, demonstrating the role that it played in shaping the political and social map of the contemporary Middle East.
