Saddam Speaks on the Gulf Crisis

Saddam Speaks on the Gulf Crisis

Ofra Bengio

Tel-Aviv University


Iraq’s occupation of Kuwait in August 1990 and the Gulf war that ensued form a unique chapter in the history of Iraq and the world at large.

This book presents the crisis from two different angles: the onlooker’s and the player’s. The first part is an analysis of the aspirations and constraints that motivated Iraq in the war. The second is a selection of the speeches of its main protagonist, President Saddam Husayn. These speeches are indeed an indispensable source for understanding not just the crisis itself but also the political culture of Iraq and the man at its helm.



Ofra Bengio, Research Fellow at the Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies, Tel Aviv University.
