Featuring the testimony of close to seventy Iraqis from all
walks of life, Voices from Iraq builds a riveting
chronological history unmatched for its insight and revelations.
Here is a history of the war in Iraq as told entirely by Iraqis
living through the U.S. invasion and occupation.
Beginning in 2003, this intimate narrative includes the
experiential accounts of civilians, politicians, former dissidents,
insurgents, and militiamen. Iraqis offering firsthand stories range
from onetime Prime Minister Ayad Allawi to resistance fighters
speaking on the condition of anonymity. Divided into five parts,
these interviews recount the 2003 invasion; Iraq's gradual slide
into chaos from 2004 to 2005; the start of a new order in 2006; the
rise of open sectarian violence over the next two years; and the
effort since 2008 to reconstruct a society from relative calm. Each
section includes interviews grouped into themes, with brief
epilogues for the participants. Not since Studs Terkel's The
Good War has a book captured so acutely the human consequences
of a conflict we are still struggling to understand. Voices
from Iraq makes utterly vivid the meaning and legacy of
America's campaign in Iraq.
