The Scourging of Iraq: Sanctions, Law and Natural Justice, Geoff Simons (Macmillan 1998). An angry book, but an invaluable reference tool. Simons has also written Iraq: Primus Inter Pariahs, a crisis chronology 1997-98 (Macmillian 1999) which minutely charts the disputes between the US and Iraq that led to the expulsion of the weapons inspectors, and Imposing Economic Sanctions: Legal remedy or genocidal tool? (Pluto,1999) looking at sanctions worldwide and their implications, as well as Iraq: From Sumer to Saddam (Macmillan 1996) which goes back 10,000 years! Sarah Graham-Brown’s Sanctioning Saddam: the Politics of Intervention (IB Tauris,1999) is a thorough and detailed analysis of the politics of economic sanctions. It includes material on the Kurds. For those wishing to look in more detail at Kurdish issues, David McDowall’s definitive A Modern History of the Kurds (IB Tauris 1997) is a must. For an historical view, The Fire this Time by former US Attorney-General Ramsey Clark (Thunders Mouth Press, updated 1994) gives a searing analysis of Gulf War propaganda, as does Second Front: Censorship and Propaganda in the Gulf War by John R Macarthur (University of California Press, 1993). For more information on depleted uranium, read Metal of Dishonour: how the Pentagon radiates soldiers and civilians with DU weapons (International Action Center).
