"Activists, ambassadors, and award-winning journalists offer their incisive analysis of the American occupation of Iraq in this collection of essays, featuring the arresting photography of Lynsey Addario. Topics include American economic interests in the war, the mainstream media coverage that made it politically feasible, escalating abuse of Muslim women by both American troops and an increasingly fundamentalist Middle East citizenry, the profiteering of multinationals like Halliburton and Bechtel, and more. Contributors are: Lynsey Addario, Fadhil al-Azzawi, Medea Benjamin, Tiosha Bojorquez Chapela, Kristina Borjesson, Anne E. Brodsky, Mike Davis, Jodie Evans, Tahmeena Faryal, Sandra Fu, Amy Goodman, Amir Hussain, Eman Ahmed Khammas, Naomi Klein, Mark LeVine, Yanar Mohammed, Viggo Mortensen, Christian Parenti, Jerry Quickley, Omid Safi, Lauren Sandler, Ambassador Joseph Wilson, and Nadia Yassine. An unflinching look at the corporate greed and manipulation at the bottom of what may be the most bungled foreign policy project in United States history. A call for transparency and truth from an esteemed assemblage invested in putting the chaotic Iraqi puzzle together" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for contemporary American history and politics collectors. This Autographed Copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the half-title page by Viggo Mortensen. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The publisher/owner of Perceval Press and a contributor to the collection, Mortensen made a one-time-only appearance in New York City to launch the book. This title is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the New And Expanded "12th Anniversary" Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Some of the finest American writers and political thinkers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER VIGGO MORETENSEN TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). Bookseller Inventory # 20137
