BAṢRI, MEER (1911– ), Iraqi author and economist. Active in Baghdad commercial life, Baṣri published a volume of essays on economics (1948) and two collections of short stories, notably Rijāl wa-Ẓilāl ("Men and Shadows," 1955). Unlike most of Iraq's Jewish writers, Baṣrī did not immigrate to Israel and made no mention of Jews or Judaism in his works of fiction.
