Veritas Books: Background to the Gulf War M.Brooker


These are some of the questions that the Gulf war has brought sharply into focus. The Left Book Club invited Malcolm Booker to present his response to these questions in a pamphlet, which will widen and inform the discussion. Starting with a summary of Middle East history from earliest times to events leading up to the war, he goes on to make some proposals for a just peace for the future. Throughout he presents the facts with authority and compassion.

Malcolm Booker was private secretary to W. M. Hughes in the early years of World War II. He was a member of the Australian diplomatic service from 1941 to 1977, for much of that time with a special interest in the United Nations. In 1945 he was attached, as political secretary, to the Australian Military Mission to Germany and in the following two years was closely involved in the movement of Jewish refugees to Australia from Germany and the countries of Eastern Europe. His last appointment was as Australian Ambassador to Yugoslavia, Romania and Bulgaria. Since his retirement he has been writing on current affairs.
