Abstract:

Is another Gulf War in the brewing? Herbert Krosney follows the trail of unscrupulous businessmen, international terrorists, and outlaw nations and their representatives to uncover plots with worldwide implications. Deadly Business provides evidence that over the past two years, the very same arms procurement bonanza that culminated in the war between Iran and Iraq, and the recent Gulf War, has taken off with renewed vigor. A gripping narrative based on first-hand.

Investigation in a dozen countries, Deadly Business probes the major players: U.S. government officials who set policy and sift through intelligence reports, American and European police who track the outwardly-respectable industrialists, the arms dealers themselves, and Iranian and Iraqi agents out to buy the high-tech weapons, chemicals and radioactive elements on their long and detailed shopping lists. Krosney illuminates the shocking ease with which the deals take.

Place, the instant fortunes that are made - and the clandestine activities of undercover agents to stymie their rivals' efforts. The result is essential reading for anyone concerned about the tinderbox world in which we live.
