"The Gulf War was a defining moment for our country. A full generation later, these scholars and participants to that history recall that tumultuous period in vivid detail. For those who recall that past, and those who care about America's future role in the Middle East, Into the Desert
is a must-read."--President George H.W. Bush
"Into the Desert
is a brilliant and penetrating account of the first Gulf War and its legacy. Featuring a stellar cast of contributors, it provides an excellent overview of an event that helped reshape not just the United States and the Middle East, but the broader international order."--Lt. Gen. Brent Scowcroft, USAF, (Ret.), former National Security Advisor to Presidents Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush
