Opis: Soldiers and Citizens - Carl Mirra, C Mirra

The first truly comprehensive oral history of the Iraq War, Soldiers and Citizens presents the raw and vivid testimonies of those who have been touched by the conflict. Included here are recollections from combat veterans, family members, conscientious objectors, Bush administration officials, Iraqi leaders, and many others, forming a gripping and moving portrait of the war. "Why did the United States invade and occupy Iraq, and what happened when we did? "Soldiers""and Citizens" provides a compelling series of answers. No matter how much you think you know about the Iraq war, this book will teach you more."--Stephen Kinzer, former "New York Times" correspondent and Visiting Scholar, Northwestern University "Carl Mirra has put together a remarkable and moving collection of oral histories of the war in Iraq. He brings into direct dialogue veterans who opposed and supported the war, policy-makers who resigned their office out of principle and those who remain convinced of the righteousness of their policies. These are fascinating clips of a war still in progress, whose origins and course will remain disputed long after it is finally concluded."--Dr. Marilyn B. Young, Professor of History, New York University and author of "The Vietnam Wars, 1945-1990" "Whether described as occupied or liberated, Iraq usually generates widely divergent, strongly held opinions. Carl Mirra's book presents all sides of the issue, as seen by those engaged in the struggle. It is compelling, balanced, rational and thought-provoking. The issues are complicated; the presentation is hard-hitting. Read it and learn."
--Ambassador Edward Peck, former U.S. Chief of Mission in Iraq and Deputy Director, White House Task Force on Terrorism in the Reagan administration "In the spirit of Studs Terkel, Carl Mirra has given us "Soldiers and Citizens," a splendid new oral history of U.S. military intervention in Iraq that could easily have been subtitled 'the good war gone bad.' This book is essential reading for anyone interested in learning why George W. Bush intervened in Iraq and just how difficult it will be to extricate the United States from what every one of Mirra's soldiers and citizens agrees will be a long and bloody war."--Dr. Douglas Little, Professor of History and Dean at Clark College; author of "American Orientalism: The United States and the Middle East sIraq and the United States: A Brief Sketch The New Winter Soldiers Redux: The Patriotism of Antiwar GIs From Bunker Hill to Baghdad: 'We Will Continue the Mission' The Sacrifice of Military Families War Mangers: Pundits and Policy Officials
