I highly recommend "Iraq:In the Eye of the Storm" by Dilip Hiro, (Nation
Books) which has been released recently. It gives a thorough and objective
account of developments in Iraq since Saddam Hussein came to power, with
more detail on the ten years since the second Gulf War that covers the
sanctions, weapons inspections, US policy throughout the 1990s (including
attempts to overthrow Saddam Hussein by espionage and relationship with the
Iraqi opposition), the politicking surrounding UNSCOM, and Iraq's internal
situation since the invasion of Kuwait (including Saddam Hussein providing
military support to one the two Kurdish factions, the KDP, that was fighting
its rival PUK in the north during the mid 1990s). The book is very timely
and is extremely informative.
