Description: 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. Size: 8vo -- 8.25 in.
Keywords: POLITICS. HISTORY. IRAQ. KUWAIT. SOCIALISM. COMMUNISM.
