Fanning the Flames: Guns, Greed & Geopolitics in the Gulf War

Publication history

Fanning the Flames was written in 1986-1987, and syndicated worldwide by the New York Times Syndication Sales. Full contents and Selected excerpts can be viewed separately.

Four complete chapters appeared in the Dutch newsweekly De Tijd in December 1986 and January 1987. In December 1987, the Swedish chapter, which recounted recently-assassinated Prime Minister Olof Palme's ties to Rev. Guards commander Mohsen Rafiq-doost, appeared as "Den Förlorade Oskulden," in Z Magazine in Stockholm.

The New York Times ran a section on the Damavand project (U.S. arms dealers attempting to sell F-4 fighters to Iran with covert White House backing) under the byline of their own writer, Stuart Diamond, on Feb. 2, 1987 ( "Huge Illegal Deal on Arms for Iran was Known to US")

L'Express and its Belgian edition, Le Vif Express, ran French-language cover stories based on the book ( "Iran-Iraq: Qui Profite du Carnage," l'Express (France) and Le Vif/l'Express (Belgium), Feb 6-12, 1987).

But the only complete edition of the book was published by a small German-language publisher in Switzerland, under the title: Ol ins Feuer, (Orell Füssli, Zurich, 1988).

The New York Times had negotiated a book contract with a French publisher, and even had galleys and a mock-up cover for the French translation, but the publisher pulled the book at the last minute because of the poor quality of the translation, done on contract by an individual with ties to French intelligence.

A separate contract was negotiated and signed with a U.S. publisher... who sat on the manuscript for over a year, only to pull out also. It turned out that the publisher in question was closely tied to then Presidential candidate George Bush, who was a major figure in the book.
