“He who would understand the economics and the politics of the Middle East from the beginning of the 20th century, must learn to spell, pronounce and really grasp the significance and meaning of just the word – OIL.
“This single word furnishes the key which unlocks the door to an understanding of all the burning questions of war and peace in this area, ranging from the struggle of the leading imperialist powers to carve up the Middle East in the aftermath of the first imperialist war of 1914-1918 to the Arab-Israeli conflict, the war in Lebanon, the Gulf war, the war in the Balkans, and the war in Afghanistan presently being conducted with characteristic brutality by US and British imperialism.”
This book records the struggles of the Palestinian people from the history of the establishment and expansion of the Zionist state, through the Arab-Israeli wars, the war in Lebanon, the 1987 Intifada, the Madrid, Oslo agreements to the Al-Aqsa Intifada. It gives detailed information of US and British imperialist aggression in the Middle East with chapters on the Iran-Iraq war, the Gulf War and its continuing genocidal crimes against the Iraqi people. It also deals with US state terrorism against Libya, Sudan, Somalia and Afghanistan. Of particular importance are articles on British imperialism’s military strategy, on US imperialism’s attempt at world domination through the National Missile Defence system and on the oil industry.
