Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At few times in recent history have we seen a war so insistently and openly signaled as the U.S.'s looming war on Iraq. According to Rahul Mahajan, the coming war is a culmination of a process that the United States started with the Gulf War, where Iraq was made into a permanent target and pariah state. Mahajan argues that the Bush administration's post-September 11 policy toward Iraq is neither about controlling weapons of mass destruction nor fighting terrorism, but about consolidating U.S. control of oil reserves and dominance in the Middle East. Despite the prospects that attacking Iraq could quickly escalate into wider regional war and lead to further terrorist attacks, the Bush administration insists that violence is our only option. Mahajan cuts through the comic-book language of President Bush's "Axis of Evil" rationale, and presents a much-needed examination of the myths, facts, and history behind the U.S.'s pitch to start another war.

Book News Annotation:

Mahajan, a longtime anti-war activist at the local and national levels, assesses the US war on Iraq and its significance in the US role in global affairs in this 5x7<"> book for scholars and general readers. The book is especially of interest to those in the anti-war and global justice movements. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

An analysis of United States foreign policy and strategies argues that continued United States military occupation in Iraq is an act of political dominance and not conducive to democracy or independence.

Synopsis:

In this compelling big-picture assessment of the U.S. war on Iraq, Mahajan combines his experience as an anti-Iraq sanctions activist with a keen analysis of U.S. foreign policy in the post-Cold War era to provide the analysis that has been overlooked in the mainstream debate. Situating Iraq within the larger context of post-9/11 foreign policy, he analyzes the Bush National Security Strategy and the new neoconservative vision of achieving increasing degrees of global domination and control. Presented with unflinching clarity, Mahajans research demonstrates that the war on Iraq was part of a much larger plan, assembled before 9/11 and, as stated by the Project for a New American Century, needing only a "new Pearl Harbor" to implement it.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 195-207).
