Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“International journalism at its best.”—Stephen Kinzer

“Every conflict spawns a handful of journalists who are willing to not only brave the war zone but to seek out the stories ignored by the press pack. The Iraq War has brought us Dahr Jamail. . . . I suspect Jamail’s account will prove an enduring document of what really happened during the chaotic years of occupation, and how it transformed ordinary Iraqis. . . . It tells everything.”—Mother Jones

“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

Named by AlterNet as one of the top three progressive books of 2007 alongside Naomi Klein’s The Shock Doctrine and Jeremy Scahill’s Blackwater, Dahr Jamail’s Beyond the Green Zone goes past the polished desks of the corporate media and Washington politicians to tell first hand of the reality of life in Iraq.

Dahr Jamail is an independent journalist who has covered the Middle East for more than four years. Jamail writes for the Inter Press Service and many other outlets and is a regular guest on Democracy Now!. He lives in California.

Amy Goodman is a best-selling author and the host of Democracy Now!.

Synopsis:

The critically acclaimed account of life in Iraq under US occupation with a new afterword.
