Rare insight into the realities of liberation and the limits of U.S. power. When the Coalition of the Willing liberated Iraq from the yoke of Saddam in early 2003, George W. Bush announced that the second Gulf War was over. This account demonstrates just the opposite. Martinkus has the courage to say what the mainstream press cannot. He spent eight weeks in and around Baghdad in early 2004, he shows that, amidst a developing guerrilla war and a chaotic reconstruction, the line between liberation and occupation has become stretched. Tracing the ever-widening gap between rhetoric and reality, Eight Weeks in Baghdad takes readers to the heart of the political and religious struggles surrounding the hand-over of power in mid-2004. Vividly describing people and places, the author evokes the everyday life. [via]
