Erasing Iraq: The human costs of carnage

Michael Otterman, Richard Hil, Paul R Wilson

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review

Abstract

For nearly two decades, the US and its allies have prosecuted war and aggression in Iraq. Erasing Iraq shows in unparalleled detail the devastating human cost. Western governments and the mainstream media continue to ignore or play down the human costs of the war on Iraqi citizens. This has allowed them to present their role as the benign guardians of Iraqi interests. The authors deconstruct this narrative by presenting a portrait of the total carnage in Iraq today as told by Iraqis and other witnesses who experienced it firsthand. Featuring in-depth interviews with Iraqi refugees in Syria, Jordan and Western countries, Erasing Iraq is a comprehensive and moving account of the Iraqi people's tragedy.
