Note from the Editor

SPECIAL IRAQ: Three months in the making, over 800 e-mails exchanged, hundreds of hours of design, formatting and editing...this Special Issue on Iraq is the most extensive and intensive project we have undertaken since the inception of Swans in May 1996.

Two weeks ago, we advised you that some remarkable people would contribute to this Special Issue. You be the judge.

So, without further ado -- you can read more about the effort in the introduction to this collective work -- we hope that this anthology of 19 essays and the diverse views and ideas presented therein will contribute to furthering the understanding of the past, present and future impact of the American hegemony, the depraved policies that have so direly devastated Iraq and its people, and the consequences for all the peoples of the world, including Americans.

Please disseminate the URL of this Special Issue on Iraq as widely as possible ( ), but please do not republish or repost these essays on the Web or in electronic format (see the reprint policy).

And as always, please form your OWN opinion, and let your friends (and foes) know about Swans.
