The revelatory volumes of Iraq, 1990-2006: A Diplomatic History through Documents detail the diplomatic saga involving Iraq and the international community from 1990 to 2006. Volume I covers the start of the Gulf War to the eve of the September 11 attacks. Volume II takes the reader from the shock of 9/11 to the prelude to the Iraq War. Volume III stretches from March 20, 2003, the first day of the Iraq War, to the formation of the Iraqi government in April 2006. Compiled over the span of more than fifteen years, the diverse set of speeches, statements, transcripts, letters, resolutions, and other primary source documents that comprise this 4,000-plus-page collection includes Iraqi, other Arab, and European documents that are usually overlooked in the English-language press. Insightful introductions to the three volumes are authored by David Kay, former U.N. arms inspector and head of the Iraq Survey Group; Andrew Parasilliti, former foreign policy adviser to Senator Chuck Hagel; and noted Mideast expert Kenneth Pollack.
