Publisher Comments:

We walk slowly under the scorching sun along dusty rows of humble headstones. She continues reading them aloud to me, "Old man wearing jacket with dishdasha, near industrial center. He has a key in his hand." Many of the bodies were buried before they could be identified. Tears welling up in my eyes she quietly reads, "Man wearing red track suit." She points to another row, "Three women killed in car leaving city by American missile."

As the occupation of Iraq unravels, the demand for independent reporting is growing. Since 2003, unembedded journalist Dahr Jamail has filed indispensable reports from Iraq that have made him this generation's chronicler of the unfolding disaster there. In these collected dispatches, Jamail presents never-before-published details of the siege of Fallujah and examines the origins of the Iraqi insurgency.

Review:

"An urgent, in-the-trenches report....[T]he author provides many significant, eye-opening observations....[A]n important eyewitness testimony." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"From the earliest days of the war, Dahr Jamail has been a human conduit for the voices of Iraqis living under U.S. occupation. In the face of tremendous personal risk, his commitment to the crucial, principled task of bearing witness has never wavered, and this extraordinary book is the result." Naomi Klein, author of No Logo and The Shock Doctrine

Review:

"Dahr Jamail does us a great service, by taking us past the lies of our political leaders, past the cowardice of the mainstream press, into the streets, the homes, the lives of Iraqis living under U.S. occupation. He is a superb journalist." Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States

Review:

"While so much reporting from Iraq has remained embedded and wrong, Dahr Jamail’s courageous truth-telling from the frontline has been a beacon." John Pilger, journalist and author of Freedom Next Time

Review:

"While the powerful media conglomerates embedded on the ground with the invading and occupying forces, Jamail embedded with the suffering people of Iraq and uncovered the horrors of this war of 'liberation.' Dahr Jamail is the conscience of American war reporting, the quintessential unembedded reporter." Jeremy Scahill, New York Times best-selling author of Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army

Review:

"Putting major news outlets to shame, Beyond the Green Zone tells us what the big American media are apparently incapable of reporting in any sustained way. For an easier spin, read the New York Times or the Washington Post. For a true story too real and awful for mainstream news, read this book." Norman Solomon, author of War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death

Book News Annotation:

This selection of stories American journalist Jamail reported during eight months from inside occupied Iraq, particularly around the two sieges of Fallujah in April and November 2004, have lost none of their power to wrench emotions from readers. Not having been approved by the US military, they did not make it to the corporate media, and never will. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

In these collected dispatches, Jamail presents never-before-published details of the siege of Fallujah and examines the origins of the Iraqi insurgency.

“Dahr Jamail does us a great service, by taking us past the lies of our political leaders, past the cowardice of the mainstream press, into the streets, the homes, the lives of Iraqis living under US occupation. If what he has seen could be conveyed to all Americans, this ugly war in Iraq would quickly come to an end. A superb journalist.”—Howard Zinn

This is going to be one hell of a book. I interviewed Dahr in my Underground Notes series on my blog, The Tahoma Activist - tahomaactivist.blogspot.com

I can't wait to read it. Oh, by the way, you guys have the book listed as being written by Amy Goodman. I think she wrote the foreword.
