Today in Middle Eastern history: Iraq’s Ramadan Revolution (1963)

The Ramadan Revolution—don’t let the name fool you, it’s really a coup that got good branding—is the middle chapter in a trilogy of coups, from 1958 to 1968, that collectively transitioned Iraq from a Hashemite-run monarchy to a Baathist-run republic. Obviously the third one is beyond the scope of this essay since it hadn’t happened yet, but we should briefly review the first.

This is just a placeholder. If you’d like to read the rest please check out my new home, Foreign Exchanges!
