Iraq, the Gulf and the Arab World : An Atlas
A highly original approach and the only atlas of its kind on the Gulf...a work of considerable value. Thematic maps offer an overview on problems and issues and short texts, charts and other documents complete the analysis of each particular point. The atlas guides the reader through the history of the region, providing both background information and analysis of recent events culminating in the Gulf War of 1991. Its wide ranging coverage and historical perspective makes this reference book a work of lasting importance. Presse Libre are an organization of Paris-based journalists founded in 1989. They operate as a think-tank with a common pool of documents and contacts to provide a more profound approach to current affairs.
