Abstract:

"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. John Martinkus's account of seven weeks spent travelling independently around Iraq in early 2004 shows just the opposite." "It takes us into the key places of the new Iraq - from Abu Ghraib prison to the Coalition's sealed-off security zone. There is an eyewitness account of the March 2004 Karbala bombings, and vivid accounts of meetings with ordinary Iraqis, religious leaders, insurgents and occupying troops."--Jacket.
