Night draws near : Iraq's people in the shadow of America's war by Anthony Shadid ( Book )
10 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,860 libraries worldwide
From the only journalist to win a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting from Iraq, an account of ordinary people caught between the struggles of nations. The Washington Post's Shadid went to Iraq, neither embedded with soldiers nor briefed by politicians. Because he is fluent in Arabic, Shadid--an Arab American born and raised in Oklahoma--was able to disappear into the divided, dangerous worlds of Iraq. Day by day, as the American dream of freedom clashed with Arab notions of justice, he pieced together the human story of ordinary Iraqis weathering the terrible dislocations and tragedies of war. Through the lives of men and women, Sunnis and Shiites, American sympathizers and outraged young jihadists newly transformed into martyrs, Shadid shows us the journey of defiant, hopeful, resilient Iraq, and how Saddam's downfall paved the way not only for democracy but also for an Islamic reawakening and jihad.--From publisher description.
Legacy of the prophet : despots, democrats, and the new politics of Islam by Anthony Shadid ( Book )
12 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 617 libraries worldwide
"Legacy of the Prophet is a sweeping, first-person account of the transformation in the style and message of Islamic politics at the end of the twentieth century: a shift from militancy to democracy with vast implications for the West. Drawing on his years of reporting in more than a dozen countries of the Muslim world, Anthony Shadid charts the way in which the adolescence of yesterday's Islamic militants is yielding to the maturity of today's activists. Through interview, travelogue, and history, he chronicles that new generation, which is finding a more realistic and potentially more successful future through democratic politics. A crucial element of this change, and of Legacy of the Prophet, is his exploration of the failure of militant Islam in countries like Sudan and Iran. Legacy of the Prophet promises to redefine the debate over the future of political Islam."--BOOK JACKET.

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Program #765: "Title: Pathways to citizenship. For Professor Mary Delorse Coleman, the question of exits from poverty is one of the most crucial public policy issues for this country and many others. Public policies which hinder the ability of individuals to 'exit poverty' are nothing short of a "public insult," whether their motivation is indifference, ignorance or hostility. In this conversation she draws compelling connections between the poor in Eastern Europe, Southern Africa and Sunflower County Mississippi"--Track sheet.

"Like was a country of lives interrupted. And like Iraq, Karima - a widow with eight children - had weathered twenty years of wars, sanctions, and dictatorship. As night drew near and bombs began to fall once more on Baghdad, she took her son to board a rickety bus to Mosul, where he would reluctantly join Saddam's army. "God protect you," she said, handing him something she could not afford to give - the thirty-cent fare." "The Washington Post's Anthony Shadid also went to war in Iraq in 2003 - as a reporter. Fluent in Arabic, a veteran observer of the Middle East, Shadid hoped to explain the complexities of post-9/11 Arab identity and to tell the human story of the American invasion's impact on Iraqi lives. For months, as democratic ideals clashed with Arab notions of justice, he disappeared into dangerous, divided streets and towns, filing front-page dispatches that quickly established him as one of the most truthful and admired journalists on the scene." "Now, drawing on Iraqi history and travels elsewhere in the Arab world, Shadid weaves together an epic narrative that shows how Iraq - oversimplified by those who perceived it merely as a nation victimized by a repressive despot - was transformed in unexpected ways by the fall of Saddam and the arrival of the Americans. Night Draws Near illustrates the dramatic, unforeseen consequences that the U.S. invasion unleashed in this wounded but resilient nation, where the present is shaped by remembered glories of the past, the horrors of recent wars, and new resentments toward the West."--BOOK JACKET.
