Blood Money: Wasted Billions, Lost Lives, and Corporate Greed in Iraq

by

Blood Money: Wasted Billions, Lost Lives, and Corporate Greed in Iraq Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It was supposed to be quick, easy, and cheap: the Bush

administration promised American taxpayers that Iraqi oil

revenues would pay for it all. But thousands of lives and

billions of dollars later, the Iraqi reconstruction is an

undeniable failure, overrun by staggering corruption, waste,

and incompetence. In BLOOD MONEY, top-flight

investigative reporter (Mother Jones) T. Christian Miller

reveals how the Bush administration failed to keep its

promises and allowed a nation to tumble into chaos. Widely

hailed as one of the most important books about the

quagmire, BLOOD MONEY is essential reading for anyone

who cares about the fate of Iraq, and about America's place

in the world.
