From Library Journal
This book by former U.S. Attorney General Clark is unique because it is based on his firsthand experience of the damage inflicted on Iraqi society as a result of the destruction of that country's civilian infrastructure during the Persian Gulf war. Clark goes beyond the usual explanation of the causes and consequences of the war and explains in detail "violations" of international legal principles by the United States and its allies in their war against Iraq. Clark also contends that the U.S. government led Saddam Hussein into taking actions that would justify U.S. military involvement in the Gulf. Clark's arguments may be controversial, especially to readers accustomed to popular explanations about the war, but they are certainly thought-provoking and worth reading. Highly recommended for both public and academic libraries.- Nader Entessar, Spring Hill Coll., Mobile, Ala.
