From Babylon to the fall of Baghdad, for more than 5,000 years Iraq has been known as the cradle of civilization. In Iraq the people, the ancient Sumerian, Babylonian, and Assyrian civilizations are introduced, as well as the Arab Empire that conquered the area in the 600s. The daily lives and challenges of today’s Iraqi and Kurdish populations are presented with the help of candid full-color photography.
