Night draws near : Iraq's people in the shadow of America's war by Anthony Shadid( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,932 WorldCat member 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
House of stone : a memoir of home, family, and a lost Middle East by Anthony Shadid( Book )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2006, Shadid, an Arab-American raised in Oklahoma, was covering Israel's attack on Lebanon when he heard that an Israeli rocket had crashed into the house his great-grandfather built, his family's ancestral home. Not long after, Shadid (who had covered three wars in the Middle East) realized that he had lost his passion for a region that had lost its soul. He had seen too much violence and death; his career had destroyed his marriage. Seeking renewal, he set out to rebuild the house that held his family's past in the town they had helped settle long ago. Although the course of the reconstruction is complicated by craftsmen with too much personality, squabbles with his extended family, and Lebanon's political strife, Shadid is restored along with the house and finds that his understanding of the Middle East, which he had known chiefly in wartime, has been deepened by his immersion in smalltown life. Coming to terms with his family's emigrant experience and their town's history, the "homeless" Shadid finds home and comes to understand the emotions behind the turbulence of the Middle East. In a moving epilogue, Shadid describes returning to this house after a nearly disastrous week as a prisoner of war in Libya along with the first visit of his daughter. Combining the human interest of The Bookseller of Kabul and Three Cups of Tea with the light touch of an expert determined, first, to tell a story, Shadid tells the story of a reconstruction effort that would have sent Frances Mayes to a psychiatric hospital as he brings to life unforgettable characters who lives help explain not just the modern Middle East but the legacy of those who have survived generations of war. He flashes back to his family's loss of home, their suffering during their country's dark days, and their experiences as newcomers in Oklahoma. This is a book about what propels the Middle East's rage, loss of home, and what it must examine and re-find, the sense of shared community. Far surpassing the usual reporter's "tour of duty," books, House of Stone is more humane and compelling and will please students of the region, those whose families have emigrated from other nations, and all readers engaged by engrossing storytelling"--
Legacy of the prophet : despots, democrats, and the new politics of Islam by Anthony Shadid( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member 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."--Jacket
House of stone a memoir of home, family, and a lost Middle East by Anthony Shadid( )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Anthony Shadid--one of four New York Times reporters captured in Libya as the region erupted--was freed, he went home, not to Boston, Beirut, or Oklahoma, where he was raised by his Lebanese American family, but to an ancient estate built by his great-grandfather, a place filled with memories of a lost era when the Middle East was a world of grace, grandeur, and unexpected departures. For two years previous, Shadid had worked to reconstruct the house and restore his spirit after both had weathered war. Now the author of the award-winning Night Draws Near tells the story of the house's re-creation, revealing its mysteries and recovering the lives that have passed through it. Shadid juxtaposes past and present as he traces the house's renewal along with his family's flight from Lebanon and resettlement in America. House of Stone is an unforgettable memoir of the world's most volatile landscape and the universal yearning for home

Recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting. On the eve before the beginning of the war in Iraq, all news correspondents were ordered to leave Baghdad, for the sake of their safety. Many streamed out. One man, without questioning, went deeper.

What followed Shadid''s decision was insightful, honest, and compassionate reporting, straight from Baghdad. With exceptional bravery, he gave readers a honest a

"For two years of my life, the Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here Project became a riddle to solve. I didn't know what Baghdad was like, but what I did know is that I wanted to say 'no' to any kind of violence; in this specific case, it was violence against culture. It was an act of terror. While I was researching, I e-mailed Anthony Shadid, and he sent me a story about al-Mutanabbi Street. The descriptions were so vivid that I asked his permission to use them in my book. And he answered: 'Yes, Victoria, I'd be honored to be included in your work. Please feel free to use anything I wrote. Good luck, and I'd love to see how it turns out. Best, Anthony.' I want to thank Anthony Shadid for letting me use his inspiring words. The book is about what I felt when I read them"--Artist's statement from the Book Arts at the Centre for Fine Print Research, UK website
