520    In this book strategic analyst Avigdor Haselkorn provides 
       an important reassessment of the 1991 Gulf War. 
       Haselkorn's step-by-step narrative - in which he reviews 
       the events of the war with Iraq, examines intelligence and
       planning during the war, discusses why President Bush 
       abruptly terminated it, and analyzes the strategic 
       consequences - is absorbing and frightening. He reveals 
       that the war was not the splendid high-tech victory that 
       many Americans perceive, but a nearly catastrophic event. 
       The threatened use of weapons of mass destruction during 
       the Gulf War has redefined the meaning of deterrence, 
       Haselkorn contends, and has set in motion trends that 
       portend great danger to world peace. 
520 8  This book focuses on the role played by biological and 
       chemical weapons in the Gulf War and scrutinizes the 
       dynamics of deterrence. It supplies the grim facts about 
       anthrax, botulinum toxin, and poison gases and traces the 
       terror of their use. Haselkorn shows that President Bush 
       had little choice about ending the war when he did, given 
       the failure of U.S. intelligence and severe flaws in 
       strategic planning. Indeed, leaders on both sides of the 
       conflict either were dangerously uninformed or did not 
       fully understand the information they had. This book 
       provides a key to the continuing stalemate with Iraq, and 
       it offers new insights into how the spread of weapons of 
       mass destruction will affect world politics and future 
       battlefields.
