About this title

Synopsis:

In this perceptive account of the Gulf War, acclaimed writer Dilip Hiro reveals the complex political-economic motivation and diplomatic maneuvering that preceded the 42-day conflict. He argues that Saddam Hussein failed to draw the right lessons from the Iran-Iraq war and thus grievously miscalculated the international response to Iraq's invasion of Kuwait. Containing maps, a chronology of events, extensive source-notes and all relevant Security Council resolutions, the book is a comprehensive and objective chronicle of the war and an important aid for understanding contemporary Middle Eastern affairs. Also includes 12 maps.

About the Author:

Dilip Hiro was educated in India, Britain and America, where he received a Master's degree. Based in London since mid-1960s, he has published 25 books. His articles on Middle East and South Asia have appeared in Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, International Herald Tribune, Observer, and Guardian.
