Published in the U.S. by Houghton Mifflin in 1991, The Death Lobby subsequently appeared as a Bantom paperback in Britain in 1992 (pictured above), and was published in French, Dutch, Danish, Portuguese, and Farsi..
While some of those foreign language editions may still be in print, the book is also available on back order from Amazon.com .
I have made available certain excerpts here. For information on how to contact the various publishers to obtain foreign language editions, see below.
The book was well-received, and is still considered the "Bible" on Iraq's arms industry by many experts. But don't take my word for it. Read what the critics say.

- With an Introduction by Kendal Nezan
"A devastating and persuasive indictment of Governmental stupidity, bureaucratic incompetence and corporate greed that enabled the Iraqi war machine to become the monster we had to face in the fall of 1990."
- Frederick Forsyth, author of The Fist of God, Day of the Jackal, etc.
"The pages of this book are filled with carefully researched information about how greed for profits leads companies to support an unscrupulous dictator by readily supplying him with the means of slaughtering defenseless people."
- Simon Wiesenthal
"well-documented and thoroughly readable... The Death Lobby describes a global arms supply system that is almost completely out of control."
- The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists
"This strongly documented book is essential reading... For an understanding of the Gulf war and the enemy's powerful arsenal, The Death Lobby is in a class by itself."
- The New York Times
"He names names - scores of major corporations that provided components or expertise... This book has refocused our attention."
- Wall Street Journal
