Iraq Under Siege: The Deadly Impact of Sanctions and War edited by Anthony Arnove [in AsianWeek]
“When people asked me if I would edit an updated edition of Iraq Under Siege, my answer has always been ‘no’ – that I hoped the book would soon become historically obsolete …,” writes Arnove in his introduction to the 2002 version of his 2000 original. Tragically, “it is more relevant today than when it was first published” – in spite of the fact that no connections between Iraq and the Sept. 11 attacks were ever made. Minor detail, I’m sure. If only we could get Dubya and all his cronies to read it!
