5.0 out of 5 stars A challenging presentation of the facts, 17 Mar 2003

This review is from: War Plan Iraq: 10 Reasons Against War with Iraq (Paperback)
I found this book to be an easy read for such a political subject. It contains a lot of information which supports an argument against going to war on iraq. The book is broken down into managable chunks with frequent headers and illustrations. Ten reasons are outlined as to why we should challenge the concept of war and the history of the relationship between the US, Uk and Iraq is laid out in comprehensive detail. This book exploits the manner in which the US and UK government haddle the iraqi issue and brings serious doubt on their intentions.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best , most up-to-date book out there on the Iraq crisis, 4 Feb 2003

This review is from: War Plan Iraq: 10 Reasons Against War with Iraq (Paperback)
Milan Rai's book is not only thorough and enlightening, but written in easily digestible chunks. Unlike other books which can read like a tidal wave of overwhelming information (an occasional criticism of Chomsky's books) this is perfect for anyone who wants to get a deep but quick understanding of the real issues.
Importantly, Rai has taken into account that events are moving quickly, and has made chapter updates available on the web at the ARROW website. This means that the information in the book is constantly up-to-date with the latest developments (there have been 7 excellent updates since the book's publication a few months ago).
The book also provides helpful contacts for those who wish to actively oppose the drive towards war -- websites, organisations and copious references.
With chapters by Chomsky and relatives of people who died in the Sept 11th attacks, and beautiful illustrations and photographs, the book presents a well-rounded, level headed and humane argument.
Milan has been to Iraq a number of times since 1998, and has seen the effects of war and sanctions first hand. He has met many civilians, and spoken directly to the UN personnel in Iraq. This is not just an exercise in fact gathering, but a passionate call for the voices of real people not to be drowned out by the dangerous rhetoric of politicians.
There's no better book about this crisis out there.
