Reviews

"Coates and Krieger provide a careful analysis of why Blair was wrong to support the US war in Iraq. They conclude that he has severely undermined the efforts of the '97 government to act as a force for good in the world. But they do not stop there. They go on to outline how the UK could get back to an ethical foreign policy and the word move forward following 11 September 2001 and the Iraq war. This is an invaluable contribution to an urgent debate."
Clare Short, MP

"This fine book describes how the formidable tag-team of Tony Blair and George Bush manipulated intelligence and rationales to gain support for their imperial adventure in Iraq. It is a depressing and disturbing story told well."

John J. Mearsheimer, R. Wendell Harrison Distinguished Service, Professor of Political Science at the University of Chicago

"Blair's War offers a detailed analysis of the circumstances in which the Neo-Conservatives in America persuaded President Bush to launch a new imperialist crusade and of how Mr Blair went along with it, so losing his credibility with the British people by presenting the case for war in a way that visibly falsified the facts. This is a book for all those who care about the world, the UN and peace."
