Topics include American economic interests in the war, the mainstream media coverage that made it politically feasible, escalating abuse of Muslim women by both American troops and an increasingly fundamentalist Middle East citizenry, the profiteering of multinationals like Halliburton and Bechtel, and more. Contributors are: Lynsey Addario, Fadhil al-Azzawi, Medea Benjamin, Tiosha Bojorquez Chapela, Kristina Borjesson, Anne E. Brodsky, Mike Davis, Jodie Evans, Tahmeena Faryal, Sandra Fu, Amy Goodman, Amir Hussain, Eman Ahmed Khammas, Naomi Klein, Mark LeVine, Yanar Mohammed, Viggo Mortensen, Christian Parenti, Jerry Quickley, Omid Safi, Lauren Sandler, Ambassador Joseph Wilson, and Nadia Yassine. An unflinching look at the corporate greed and manipulation at the bottom of what may be the most bungled foreign policy project in United States history. A call for transparency and truth from an esteemed assemblage invested in putting the chaotic Iraqi puzzle together" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for contemporary American history and politics collectors. This Autographed Copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the half-title page by Viggo Mortensen. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The publisher/owner of Perceval Press and a contributor to the collection, Mortensen made a one-time-only appearance in New York City to launch the book. This title is a contemporary classic.
