B158 – George Bush vs. Saddam Hussein: Military Success! Political Failure? / By Roger Hillsman

From the dust jacket:  “The recent Gulf War, contends Emeritus Professor Roger Hillsman of Columbia University, was brought on not by the clash of national interests, but by the intense personal rivalry between George Bush and Saddam Hussein.  Hillsman portrays Saddam Hussein as a villain, but a villain who rose to power in a society of villains;  a man driven by very real and human fears.”  Hardcover, pp 273,
