WEAPONS MASS DIPLOMACY GN
(W) Abel Lanzac, Antonin Baudry
(A/CA) Christophe Blain
Following 9/11, President Bush's "War on Terror" with plans to invade Iraq erupted into a cultural clash between French reluctance and American assurance over the case for "Weapons of Mass Destruction." In Weapons of Mass Diplomacy
, diplomat Abel Lanzac reveals the tension and politics through a French insider's point of view, with satirical humor that softens the controversial subject matter. A graphic milestone of diplomacy, Weapons of Mass Diplomacy
, a bestseller in Europe, provides a revelatory account of a period that saw French fries become "freedom fries" and an alternative perspective on the decisions leading up to the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
