الكتاب يسرد الأحداث التي واجهت الملوك الذي حكموا العراق من ذرية الشريف حسين مابين عامي 1921_1958 ويتناول المنعطفات التي شهدوها من انقلابات وعدم الاستقرار السياسي ومراحل بناء العراق الحديث...الكتاب متناسق على عكس بعض الكتب المترجمة من العربية إلى الإنكليزية وهذا النجاح يعزى إلى المترجم سليم طه التكريتي
