    Story

    The Washington Post's former Baghdad bureau chief, Rajiv Chandrasekaran, takes us into the Green Zone, headquarters for the American occupation in Iraq. In this bubble separated from wartime realities, the task of reconstructing Iraq is in the hands of 20-somethings chosen for their Republican Party loyalty. They pursue irrelevant neoconservative solutions and pie-in-the-sky policies instead of rebuilding looted buildings and restoring electricity, angering the locals and fueling the insurgency.

    Rick Grant says: "A stunning work and performance"
    "Thrilling"
    Overall

    You will be fascinated by this book. The best written current-events book I've come across in a long while, Imperial Life is almost a novel in its clear delineation and development of the characters of the Green Zone and the suspense building up to the debacle you already know will happen.
