There's been a host of books recently published touching on the issue of sanctions against Iraq. If you've had a chance to look at any of these, could you send me your comments, which I'll work into the CASI on-line bibliography (at: http://www.ex-parrot.com/casi/info/biblio.html). This is the list, together with the information I've gathered about them from short published reviews: Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Unvanquished: A US-UN Saga (New York: Random House, 1999) Apparently contains some revelations about US strategy in negotiations designed to implement oil-for-food, from the former Secretary-General of the UN. May resolve the recent discuss-list exchange on whether OFF was designed to be rejected? Geoffrey Leslie Simons, Imposing economic sanctions: legal remedy or genocidal tool? (London: Pluto Press, 1999) A review of the misuse of economic sanctions worldwide, but with particular emphasis on Iraq, making the case that sanctions on Iraq constitute genocide. Sarah Graham-Brown, Sanctioning Saddam : The Politics of Intervention in Iraq (London: I.B.Tauris, 1999) Focuses on international aid to the Iraqi population, suffering under economic sanctions, as well as other forms of Western interventions into Iraq since 1991. Daniel W. Drezner, The Sanctions Paradox : Economic Statecraft and International Relations (Cambridge University Press, 1999) On the ineffectiveness of economic sanctions as a means to secure political or strategic ends. Anthony H. Cordesman, Iraq and the War of Sanctions : Conventional Threats and Weapons of Mass Destruction (Praeger Publishers, 1999) Although is largely an analysis of what the author sees as the continuing military threat from Iraq, touches on the ineffectiveness of economic sanctions in eliminating this threat. -- ------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is a discussion list run by the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
