Chapter 4 examines the period from end of the Second World War through the end of the monarchy to Abdul Karim Qasim (1958–63). It also discusses the armed autonomist movement, sometimes known as the Barzani uprising or Kurdish–Iraqi War, and the position of the Assyrians in it from 1961 to 1963 and the following years. This period witnessed massive upheavals in all aspects of Iraqi society during the clashes between government military and non-governmental opposition forces.
