  • Dismantling the Iraqi Nuclear Programmeby Gudrun Harrer

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 135.00

    This book is an authoritative account of the nuclear weapons inspections regime in Iraq from 1991 to 1998.

In the 1990s, after adapting to a completely new kind of intrusive inspections with unprecedented access rights, the... more...

    PublicAffairs 2014; US$ 18.99

    The Panzerfaust-3, a German shoulder-fired heat-seeking antitank missile, can punch through a metre of solid steel-far more than any armoured vehicle could carry.
