The economic sanctions imposed on Iraq from 1990 to 2003 were the most comprehensive and devastating of any established in the name of international governance. This book examines the key role the nation played in shaping the sanctions, whose harsh strictures resulted in part from US definitions of 'dual use' and 'weapons of mass destruction'.
