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.
