I've been idly compiling a brief bibliography of articles and books on economic sanctions & related issues. This should provide more substantial information than the short pieces which are frequently posted on the CASI discussion group. It's intended for those planning to go to Iraq this summer in deciding what research project/s to undertake. I haven't looked at most of these items, so I'm not vouching for their quality. I haven't included anything solely on the 1991 bombardment itself, as the literature is vast. Comments on items & recommended titles would be appreciated, especially on Oil-for-Food: I've yet to find anything more detailed than a few brief articles in Middle East International.
