As I have no financial connection with the book, I feel free to promote it shamelessly.

The book is "Iraq Under Siege : The Deadly Impact of Sanctions and War", edited by Anthony Arnove.   It's available through and will ship within 24-hours.  The Economist gave it an excellent review, which Rania Masri previously posted <> (she co-authored a chapter).

I've just ordered two copies, myself.  A full description can be found here <>, as can the Table of Contents:

Somebody recently posted a message to this discussion list about a new
book on Iraq published by new press. I would be grateful if someone
could post me with the details of it once again as I unfortunately have
lost the original message.
