"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This is among a growing number of books on Iraq and its president, Saddam Hussein, that have been recently published in the West. Henderson, a British journalist associated with the respected London daily the Financial Times , based this book on his field research in the Middle East. His narrative is smooth and accessible to the nonspecialist reader, and the information is up to date. Henderson includes useful charts on Saddam Hussein's weapons procurement maze, his family tree, and his intricate web of political control. For a more detailed analysis of Saddam's political life, readers may want to consult Efraim Karsh and Inauri Rautsi's Saddam Hussein: A Political Biography ( LJ 5/15/91). Recommended for public libraries and general readers. Previewed in "The Gulf War in Print," LJ 3/15/91.--Ed.
