From the only journalist to win a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting from Iraq, an account of ordinary people caught between the struggles of nations. The Washington Post's Shadid went to Iraq, neither embedded with soldiers nor briefed by politicians. Because he is fluent in Arabic, Shadid--an Arab American born and raised in Oklahoma--was able to disappear into the divided, dangerous worlds of Iraq. Day by day, as the American dream of freedom clashed with Arab notions of justice, he pieced together the human story of ordinary Iraqis weathering the terrible dislocations and tragedies of war. Through the lives of men and women, Sunnis and Shiites, American sympathizers and outraged young jihadists newly transformed into martyrs, Shadid shows us the journey of defiant, hopeful, resilient Iraq, and how Saddam's downfall paved the way not only for democracy but also for an Islamic reawakening and jihad.--From publisher description.… (mais)

Absolutely riveting account of the unjustified American invasion of Iraq. ( )
  kateschmidt | Oct 20, 2018 |
well-read. hard to remember details. i have taught esl to many arabic speakers and they have many annoying qualities, constant chatter which is very loud actually, no sense of time, not that accepting of other cultures--who is really, not much religious tolerance--we cannot mention pigs in class but they have other wonderful qualities, friendly, warm, generous, funny. they also believe that the americans engineered 911! as if! i think sometimes because their religion was founded about 600 years after christianity, they are about 600 years behind christian countries. think of christianity 600 years ago and you have islam!

It's amazing to me that we're lucky enough to have a reporter who can get this close to Iraqi people during the war and who can write this well. Every American should read this.

One for my bookcase, I guess, but not indispensable. Shadid speaks Arabic and had a lot of experience covering the Middle East for the Washinton Post and AP. He was even in Baghdad during the invasion. This book is essentially the stories of various families and individuals that Shadid met in Baghdad and kept returning to, watching their hopes rise and fall and sometimes still bravely flutter. Also good for getting a sense of the Shiite vs Sunni perspectives and the appeal of certain Shiite leaders.

It doesn't have the breadth of George Packer's Assassins' Gate. Nothing on the intellectual underpinnings (Berman, etc.), Iraqi exiles, the administration's decision-making (or lack of it). the post-9/11 White House, the short-curcuited war-planning and reconstruction efforts. There's a little on the politics of Iraqi leaders that emerged after the occupation (though not people like Chalabi and Allawi). ( )
