1 Barnes, Jack, et. Al. New International no. 7: Opening Guns of World War III: Washington's Assault on Iraq
NY Pathfinder Press (NY) 1991 0873486420 / 9780873486422 Trade Papeback Near Fine Magazine 8vo -- 8.25 in. 
333 pp. Tight, nearly new collection of articles about the First Gulf War (against Iraq's attempt to occupy Kuwait), written from the perspective of the U.S. Socialist Workers Party. Cover corner creased. The anthology denounces the American campaign as a failure that slaughtered tens of thousands of Iraqi soldiers and created millions of refugees but didn't rein in Saddam Hussein. Other articles criticize the surge in US militarism during the Carter administration, and revisit the forgotten 1945 protest against U.S. occupation of Japan. The magazine was dated and issued in 1991, but may have been reprinted in paperback form in 2003.

Self-published 2010 978-0-615-40282 Trade Papeback Good 8vo -- 9 in Tall

An American writer recounts her friendship with Vanunu, who served 18 years in an Israeli prison after taking photos of nuclear development work in an underground facility in the Negev desert. His revelations to British media helped document that Israel has a nuclear arsenal of 150 to 200 bombs, although Israel has neither confirmed or denied the report. Israel has required him to remain incommunicado since his release from prison, but he has violated his parole several times. Amnesty International has declared him a prisoner of conscience. As of 2015, he was seeking political asylum in Norway, where his wife teaches in a university.
