Beyond the Storm
A Gulf Crisis Reader
edited by Phyllis Bennis & Michel Moushabeck
intro. by Eqbal Ahmad; foreword by Edward W Said

6" x 9" • 448 pages
Available Options:

The Gulf crisis is one of the most important and tragic events to take place in the Middle East this century. Never has there been a more massive direct involvement of the United States in the region. But despite the more than 500,000 U.S. troops sent to Saudi Arabia, despite the billions of dollars spent on the armed forces, and despite the war's enormous costs in human life and economic hardship, the Gulf remains an unfamiliar region, "Desert Storm" and unsettling war, George Bush's "new world order" an uncertain cause.

This collection of original essays by 31 internationally respected scholars and experts from four continents examines the ethical and strategic issues of the conflict, and analyzes the catastrophic consequences facing the world in the wake of the Gulf war.

Phyllis Bennis and Michel Moushabeck are the editors of Altered States: A Reader in the New World Order.
