Full description for Howling in Mesopotamia
Born in the US to Iraqi parents, Haider Ala Hamoudi brings an insider's perspective to America's war in Iraq. During the war, he lived in Baghdad with relatives who were intimately involved in the unfolding political process, including his uncle, Hummam Hamoudi, who became chair of the Iraqi Constitutional Committee, and his cousin, Ahmed Chalabi, one of the most prominent Iraqi exiles to return after the fall of the previous regime. Hamoudi saw firsthand the frustrations and fears that plagued Iraqi civilians. At the same time, as an American in Iraq on a USAID-funded contract, he worked closely with American administrators regularly, and saw the situation from their point of view as well. This book offers a critical look at what went wrong in Iraq from a person who was there.
