Weapons of Mass Diplomacy HC (2014 SelfMadeHero) comic books
1st printing. Written by Abel Lanzac and Antonin Baudry. Art and cover by 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. Hardcover, 8-in. x 11-in., 200 pages, full color. Cover price $24.95.
