Author Black Discusses Iraq at Nov. 10 Miami Press Luncheon

MIAMI, Nov. 05 /PRNewswire/ --

MIAMI, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Author Edwin Black will give a background look at Iraq and discuss his latest book "Banking on Baghdad" before an open- to-the-public luncheon of the South Florida International Press Club Wednesday (Nov. 10) at the Miami Shores Country Club at noon.

Black, whose books "War Against the Weak" and "IBM and the Holocaust" were major successes, this time is launching a book that tells about the subjugation of Iraq by foreign powers throughout history. The book has had excellent reviews since its debut last month.

The luncheon is open to the public (with reservations). Cost is $25. RSVP to Press Club Treasurer Andy Alpers, 305-596-4228, or Press Club President Ron Levitt, 954-349-2596 or 305-775-2689.

"'Banking on Baghdad' is a fascinating background on Iraq -- and its position as a major oil producer -- which will help people understand today's headlines," Black said.

A synopsis of Black's new book describes his research this way: "In 'Banking on Baghdad,' New York Times and international best-selling author Black chronicles the dramatic and tragic history of a land long the center of world commerce and conflict. Tracing the involvement of Western governments and militaries, as well as oil, banking, and other corporate interests, Black pinpoints why today, just as throughout modern history, the world needs Iraq's resources -- and remains determined to acquire and protect them. 'Banking on Baghdad' painfully documents Iraq's recent history," according to a recent review.
