No end in sight by Charles H Ferguson( Visual )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Insiders' observations of the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq and the subsequent occupation, featuring commentary from high-ranking officials, Iraqi civilians, American soldiers and prominent analysts. Examines the U.S. policy decisions surrounding the invasion and their consequences in Iraq, including such issues as low U.S. troop levels, the uncontrolled looting of Baghdad, the purging of professionals from the Iraqi government, the disbanding of the national military, and the subsequent surge of civil and political chaos
Aftermath : following the bloodshed of America's wars in the Muslim world by Nir Rosen( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rosen-who the Weekly Standard once bitterly complained has "great access to the Baathists and jihadists who make up the Iraqi insurgency"--Has spent nearly a decade among warriors and militants who have been challenging American power in the Muslim world. In Aftermath, he tells their story, showing the other side of the U.S. war on terror, traveling from the battle-scarred streets of Baghdad to the alleys, villages, refugee camps, mosques, and killing grounds of Jordan, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, and finally Afghanistan, where Rosen has a terrifying encounter with the Taliban as their "guest," and witnesses the new Obama surge fizzling in southern Afghanistan. Rosen was one of the few Westerners to venture inside the mosques of Baghdad to witness the first stirrings of sectarian hatred in the months after the U.S. invasion. He shows how weapons, tactics, and sectarian ideas from the civil war in Iraq penetrated neighboring countries and threatened their stability, especially Lebanon and Jordan, where new jihadist groups mushroomed. Moreover, he shows that the spread of violence at the street level is often the consequence of specific policies hatched in Washington, D.C. Rosen offers a seminal and provocative account of the surge, told from the perspective of U.S. troops on the ground, the Iraqi security forces, Shiite militias and Sunni insurgents that were both allies and adversaries. He also tells the story of what happened to these militias once they outlived their usefulness to the Americans. Aftermath is both a unique personal history and an unsparing account of what America has wrought in Iraq and the region. The result is a hair- raising, 360-degree view of the modern battlefield its consequent humanitarian catastrophe, and the reality of counterinsurgency
In the belly of the green bird : the triumph of the martyrs in Iraq by Nir Rosen( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nir Rosen is one of the few Western reporters able to report the truth from Iraq. A freelancer who speaks Iraqi-accented Arabic, he has reported from some of the country's most dangerous locales. He has listened to the insurgents, and he knows that they will never rest until the Americans are gone. Since the fall of Saddam, Rosen has been breaking bread with dangerous men and listening to ordinary Iraqis. He has heard the double messages--the careful English messages for Western ears and the unvarnished hostility in Arabic--and he has interviewed politicians and imams and seen how the insurgents and gang leaders create militias, private courts, prisons, security services, and more. The depth of discord is difficult to fathom; the anti-Americanism is much more recent, but not much less intense. The divisions within this cobbled-together country, much like those within Yugoslavia, are simply too intense to contain.--From publisher description

Un acte d'une violence indicible by Matthias Bruggmann( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Si des dizaines de milliers de clichés de torture pris par des photographes syriens n'attirent pas l'attention du public occidental, que peut accomplir un étranger qui ne parle même pas arabe ? Les photographies de Matthias Bruggmann portent un regard critique sur la représentation des horreurs de la guerre. Elles donnent à voir au public occidental une vision plus nuancée de l'expérience du conflit armé et gomment les frontières entre photojournalisme et photographie plasticienne. A travers elles, Bruggmann interroge les codes du photojournalisme et fait bouger les lignes de démarcation entre photo document et photo d'art. Ainsi, il précise, "comme en physique quantique, les conditions de l'observation changent la nature de ce qui est observé". Son travail s'inspire de ce présupposé. Initié en 2012, son projet syrien nous immerge dans la complexité du conflit. D'un point de vue documentaire, il s'agit de la seule oeuvre de ce type réalisée à l'intérieur du pays par un seul photographe occidental, ce grâce à l'aide des meilleurs experts indépendants sur le conflit. Ses images, qui couvrent une zone géographique plus vaste que la Syrie, pulvérisent l'idée de frontière et de nation. Elles questionnent nos suppositions morales et suscitent une compréhension autre de la violence qui sous-tend les combats. Le photographe, en juxtaposant des images prises par des téléphones portables de miliciens combattant l'État islamique à ses propres clichés, invite à réfléchir sur notre perception occidentale de la photographie en zones de guerre et sur le rôle du photojournalisme. En s'appropriant ces images non professionnelles et en les mélangeant aux siennes, il pousse à regarder à travers l'oeil des Syriens et questionne ainsi notre perception entre réalité du photographe et réalité de ses sujets. Son travail révèle alors un aspect caché du conflit et nous amène à considérer quel prix nous serions prêts à payer, quels actes de violence nous serions prêts à commettre pour défendre nos propres libertés. Pour accompagner ces images, cinq auteurs appartenant à des bords différents du conflit exposent leur vision sur l'origine de cette guerre désormais civile. Journaliste, professeur, consultant pour des ONG, fondateur des Casques blancs dévoilent toute la complexité de la situation et les multiples enjeux qui en résultent." [Source : éditeur]
