1. Tait, Terry Thomas. ENDURING FAILURES:A BORDERLANDS HISTORY OF THE IRAQ WAR AND ITS AFTERMATH.

Degree: MA, History, 2019, Miami University

This thesis places the Iraq War and its aftermath (2003-2014) within the framework of borderlands scholarship. The interdisciplinary approach used in this work makes new connections between borderlands history, particularly in the context of North America, and places it within the context of the modern Middle East. By expanding upon abstract notions ofpower in the frontier, this work explores the different perspectives, experiences, and goals of Iraq’s tribal community in al-Anbar Province, the U.S.-led Coalition, and al-Qaʿida in Iraq and its successor organizations to argue that these groups failed to fill the vacuum of authority thatemerged in Iraq after 2003 with their own respective visions for the country’s future. This workutilizes Richard Whites concept of “the middle ground” to explore how these groups negotiatedand competed with one another for hegemony, creating the political realities of post-2003 Iraq. Advisors/Committee Members: Gordon, Matthew (Advisor).
