Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-An excellent source for finding information for a debate, a report, or for personal interest. The book shows both sides of issues such as justifying the Iraq war, what role the U.S. should play, and the quality of life in Iraq after the fall of Saddam's regime. The text is composed of articles and statements by prominent figures such as President Bush, John McCain, and Colin Powell. Other authors are Middle Eastern scholars, journalists, and nongovernmental political organizations. The documents in the appendix are a great aid for researchers, since they contain important decisions made by governing bodies, such as a speech given by Saddam responding to Western government demands or the United Nations Resolution 1441. A helpful list of contact organizations is also appended.-Taja Alkoriji, Southwest Regional Library, Pembroke Pines, FL Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
