Saddam Hussein's Gulf Wars: Ambivalent Stakes in the Middle East

Synopsis

This book deals extensively with Iraq and Saddam Hussein--his rise to power, his mastery of Iraqi statecraft, his pan-Arab proclivities, and his two Gulf wars: the first against Iran and the second against the U.S.-led multinational coalition in 1991. The book portrays a multidimensional Saddam Hussein: good and bad, strategic and human. It throws light on the reasons the U.S. went to war against Saddam, and presents an in-depth analysis of the United States' policies, which at one time supported Iraq's cause, in the Gulf region. A valuable feature of the book is the detailed discussion it presents of the psychology of all the participants before, during, and after the Gulf War.
