Summary
The Washington Post<U+0092>s former Baghdad bureau chief, Raviv Chandrasekaran, takes us into the Green Zone, headquarters for the American Occupation of Iraq. In this bubble, cut off from wartime realities, where the task of reconstructing a devastated nation competed with the distractions of a Little America--a half-dozen bars, a disco, a shopping mall--much of it run by Halliburton. Drawing on hundreds of interviews and internal documents, Chandrasekaran tells the story of the people that inhabited the Green Zone during the occupation, from imperial viceroy L. Paul Bremer III to the fleet of twentysomethings hired to implement the idea that Americans could build a democracy in the embattled Middle East
