These Iraqi and American propaganda materials were collected by Jeffrey Ward during a tour of duty while serving in Iraq. Imagery of Iraqi cleric Moqtada al-Sadr and former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein are prominent in this collection. A striking visual amidst the scenes of propaganda and smiling authoritarians is a 2004 calendar featuring an image of a young girl. The posters have been translated by Mark Long, Baylor professor of Middle Eastern studies.
