Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
Beschreibung"[A] fascinating account of trying to report on a war unprecedented in its danger for the media.... The reporters' accounts here are notable for their studied neutrality. Blood flows, bodies and limbs pile up. They hear the whistle of bullets and whoosh of mortars."
--"Los Angeles Times"
"A terrific new resource for understanding what really happened--and is happening--in Iraq. A gritty and gripping narrative history of the run-up to war to the present quagmire."
"[A] harrowing portrait of what it was like to live and work in Iraq as the country rapidly descended into chaos."
"An excellent oral history... Being conversational, "Reporting Iraq" is much easier to read than a long news story. It is also blunt, and the reader may be thankful that it is organized so it can be taken in small doses."
--"The Seattle Times
"Describes the dangers reporters face trying to cover a conflict where just looking foreign makes you suspicious and where roadside bombs are a random and constant threat."
--"The Chicago Tribune"
"Free from the constraints of objective journalism, the reporters hold nothing back and paint an almost uniformly bleak picture of life in post-Saddam Iraq.... While Reporting Iraq is unlikely to win reporters any new friends--especially among those who already hold them in low regard-- the book offers the serious reader a fascinating glimpse into the mind of the Baghdad press corps."
--"The Houston Chronicle"
"[A]n intimate look at the stories behind the stories reported out of Iraq. The reporters offer early observations that don't make it into journalistic reports: changes in the expectations that Americanswould be greeted as liberators, the personal perils of everyday life, the distancing from the action as Iraqis became more suspicious of journalists, and changes in perceptions of the American mission in Iraq....More illuminating than straightforward reporting."
"The interviews make clear the difficulties in obtaining accurate information during war and insurgency. Many of the journalists developed good working relationships with Iraqi citizens, and they talk about how the war has changed their own lives forever. An enlightening look at the Iraq war."
"This vital, breathtaking collection may be the closest contemporary reporting gets to cutting through the fog of war."
