Abstract
In issues No. (13, 14) of “Arab History Magazine for Ottomani
Studies” which is issued by AL-Timemy institute for studies and
researches in Tunisia, there is a study under the title : the situation of
Ottomani studies in Iraq during the past thirtieth, (1996),”I
mentioned in it that past years witnessed a notable interest with
Ottomani studies not only in Iraq, but in the whole Arab Homeland
because of the great significance of “ the Ottomani reign “, which
extended from the first half of the 16th century until the beginning of
the 20th century; regarding political, economic, social, and
psychological formation of the contemporary Arab society.
Take care of Ottomani reign took the form of making various
researches and studies, issuing scientific magazines and periodicals,
beside establishing think-tanks that attend to modern Arab history
since the beginning of the Ottomani expansion in 1516 until the last
days of World War I in 1918.
As a supplement to this study I submit here a review for the status
of Turkish studies in Iraq, where I am saying that looking after
Turkish affaires connected with the formation of modern Iraqi state
in 1921 and modern Turkish state in 1923. There were two factors
behined paying attention to Turkish studies : first ; is related to
Turkish claims in Mosul province and issuing the resolution of
League of Nations in 1925 coming to a point that Mosul province is
inseparable part of Iraqi state. Second; the willing to know the
Turkish experience led by Mustafa Ataturk (1919-1938) in building
and developing Turkey.
As a consequence of Iraqi – Turkish relations development, and
concluding a treaty of friendship between the two countries in 1947,
Shakir Sabir AL-Thabit who, is a non – professional historians and
ex-military man, wrote his book” Friendship History between Iraq
and Turkey” which was printed in Baghdad. Since 1947 and until
writing these lines, Iraqi researches – in all specialties – continue
looking after the north neighbor : Turkey; as a desire to establish
developed relations and to contribute to solve the problems that
block the course of relations movement, Iraqi researchers find that
there are many ties which connect both Iraqi – Turkish peoples as
religion, neighborhood, mutual history, and exchanged interests.
