The Iraq war was a form of everyday bureaucratic governance with the Iraq government managing resistance and religious diversity and shaping a public culture in which soldiering and martyrdom became markers of privileged citizenship. The men and families of those who fought and died during the Iran-Iraq and First Gulf wars have memories not only of the political, social, and cultures changes in Iraq but also of the “normalization” of war.

Dina Rizk Khoury is Associate Professor of History and International affairs at George Washington University. Her books include State and Society in the Ottoman Empire: Mosul 1519-1834 (1997) and Iraq in Wartime: Soldiering, Martyrdom and Remembrance (2013).
