The Occupation of Iraq: Two Volume Boxed Set

Documents and Commentary

By Stefan Talmon

This is the two-volume boxed set containing the monograph The Governance of Occupied Territory in Contemporary International Law (Volume 1, ISBN 9781849462075) and the accompanying volume of documents on the occupation of Iraq, The Official Documents of the Coalition Provisional Authority and the Iraqi Governing Council (Volume 2, ISBN 9781841136424). The invasion and occupation of Iraq rank among the most controversial and complex issues in international law in recent history. Selected documents are presented here, including the first complete set of all Regulations, Orders, Memoranda, and Public Notices issued by the US-led occupation administration of Iraq, the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA), several of which were never published on the CPA's website or promulgated in Alwaqai Aliraqiya, the Official Gazette of Iraq. Some of these legal acts have shaped the economic and political system of present day Iraq and will be part of the country's legal order for years to come. Also included are CPA and CPA-related documents selected from more than 5,000 unclassified CPA documents and received under freedom of information requests lodged in the US, the UK, Australia, and Switzerland. This collection makes important documents easily accessible to researchers and professionals. Considering that the main source of information for the occupying powers in Iraq were the precedents set during the First and Second World Wars, the occupation of Iraq will serve as a modern precedent for future administrations of occupied territory. These documents are made searchable with a comprehensive table of documents, a list of abbreviations, more than 1,100 explanatory notes and cross-references, and a substantive subject index.
