Price: €14.00


An account of the polit­i­cal life of the Iraqi pres­i­dent. Since 1979, Sad­dam Hus­sein had ruled the coun­try with an iron hand, enjoy­ing lim­it­less power, com­bin­ing pop­ulism with nation­al­ism, using police ter­ror and a sense of per­son­al­ity cult. Tes­ti­monies from for­mer soviet union and Iraqi cit­i­zens, archives, excep­tional images, pic­tures from today’s Iraq help to under­stand the dif­fer­ent steps of his ascent to com­plete power. Thus, the life of this man, both an inno­v­a­tive leader and a tyrant is part and par­cel of Iraqi his­tory. It is an edi­fy­ing por­trait of a dic­ta­tor whose polit­i­cal career rested on progress but also on total­i­tar­ian cru­elty and was marked with frat­ri­cide plots and sum­mary executions.
