Where Faisal had been at home among the townsmen and tribesmen and had taken to the interpersonal style of politics in Baghdad with zest, Ghazi cared little for the intricacies of Baghdad politics and often neglected his royal duties. 3 Meanwhile, politicians in Baghdad continued to jockey for position, ignoring real problems. The resignation of Faisal’s coalition cabinet led to a struggle for power within governing circles. The machinations of politicians would have been less serious had they not come on top of tribal dissatisfactions that had been smoldering for some time.

A less noticeable but more significant change was that the new government contained few Arab Sunnis and not a single advocate of the pan-Arab cause on which all previous governments had been founded. This configuration resulted in a more Iraq-centered foreign policy oriented toward better relations with Turkey and Iran instead of with the Arab countries. In 1937 the Sa’dabad Pact was concluded among Turkey, Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan, a group that prefigured the later Baghdad Pact. Iraq also reached an agreement with Iran (mediated by Britain) that attempted to settle the boundary between Iran and Iraq on the Shatt al-Arab.

The first decisive step in creating the institutions and structure of the new Iraqi state and the British role in it took place at the Cairo Conference of 1921. It was here that the three pillars of the Iraqi state were conceived: the monarchy, in the person of Faisal, the third son of the sharif of Mecca; the treaty, the legal basis for Britain’s rule; and the constitution, designed to integrate elements of the population under a democratic formula. 7 The Monarchy On 27 August 1921, Faisal was installed as Iraq’s first king.
