Baghdad burning

£2.99

Product description

n Volume 2 of this riveting weblog, a remarkable young Iraqi woman gives a human face to war and occupation in Iraq. From November 2004 up to June 2006 Since the 24th of September, 2003, twenty-five year old anonymous blogger 'Riverbend' has provided the world with an up-to-the-minute report on life in Iraq, from the viewpoint of someone who is there. In this hard-hitting journal, she describes on a day-to-day basis the realities of life in post-war Iraq, which for her family and neighbours means regular power-cuts, bombings, kidnappings and night-time raids by US soldiers. Including diary entries covering the release of the torture pictures of Abu Ghraib and Bush's State of the Union Speech as well as a more critical analysis of key players during the war and in its aftermath, Baghdad Burning offers a highly personal narrative on life since the US occupation , as Iraq descends into civil war and Riverbend begins to feel more threatened by the Iraqi Secret Service than the coalition troops.
