The Gulf War Reader

The Gulf War Reader

Micah L. Sifry
Christopher Cerf

Times Books

"Sifry and Cerf have edited a book on the Gulf War that will stand for the foreseeable future as the authoritative statement from different points of view about the continuing tragedy in the Gulf and Middle East. The book contains basic historical documents, articles from leading analysts in the field, and political commentary which will leave the reader reeling from the intrigue, misperception, animosity, xenophobia, and skullduggery which is the story of oil, politics, great-power rivalries, colonial grabs, and nationalist yearnings. The collection should be read from beginning to end, for it reads like a frightening suspense novel, as well as a cautionary tale about human weakness."

-Marcus Raskin, Distinguished Fellow of the Institute for Policy Studies,
and co-editor (with Bernard B. Fall) of The Vietnam Reader

"The Gulf War Reader is a timely and indispensable guide to the underlying issues, interests, and passions that erupted in the world's first post-Cold War conflict.”
-William Hyland, editor of Foreign Affairs and author of The Cold War Is Over

"Historical background, uncensored reportage and polemic from every imaginable point of view-mainstream and alternative-left, right, and off the political spectrum. A must-read for the informed citizen in search of all the views fit to print."
-ERIC Utne, editor-in-chief, Utne Reader
