The first page of this site with links to the pdf versions, the maps and the TEXT version of the file.


BACKGROUND
The first version of Iraq 61, a reproduction of IRAQ A GUIDEBOOK (1961), was hosted in the 'home page' section of TalkCity during the late 1990s. This web hosting company eventually stopped hosting. The numerous pictures on the site were in need of reducing in size and the site, being the first constructed by the editor, had a slightly over-complicated navigation sequence. The second version was compiled after the grossly immoral Blair-Bush military adventure. Unfortunately, the capabilities available to the site editor at that time did not allow for improving the graphics.

SITE REVISION
In this the third edition the second version of the site has been largely adhered to, but with changes designed to make for faster downloading times. The guide is now available in small portable document format (PDF) files for each chapter.
(It is faster to access pdf files by downloading them to your computer than reading them online: click right-button on mouse whilst over the link and select 'Save Target As...' option. They can then be read with a pdf reader such as the Adobe Acrobat reader program at your leisure. Those with browsers set to notify on scripts in downloaded files should be advised that the pdfs were constructed in the Adobe Photoshop program and the editors knows of no harmful active scripts existing in them.)
