This reading explores Saddam Hussein’s rationale for attacking Kuwait, and the Iraqi perspective on events leading up to Operation DESERT STORM. It is particularly valuable for its examination of Saddam’s domestic motives and its counter-factual analysis of his “other options.” A fascinating group of essays which significantly adds to the mainly US-European view.
