Some brief overview of this book

The fullest, most intimate account of life in the Green Zone, the sheltered bubble where idealistic Americans planned the occupation while Iraq fell apart.

The Green Zone, Baghdad, 2003: in this walled-off compound of swimming pools and luxurious amenities, Paul Bremer and his Coalition Provisional Authority set out to fashion a new, democratic Iraq. Staffed by idealistic aides chosen primarily for their political affiliations and views on issues such as abortion, the CPA spent the crucial first year of occupation pursuing goals that had little to do with the immediate crises of a postwar nation. In this acclaimed firsthand account, the former Baghdad bureau chief of The Washington Post gives us an intimate and remarkably dispassionate portrait of life inside this Oz-like place, which continued unaffected by the growing mayhem outside. This is a quietly devastating portrait of imperial folly, and an essential book for anyone who wants to understand those early days when things went irrevocably wrong in Iraq.

Good To Know

Some interesting outtakes from our interview with Chandrasekaran: Ive worked for only one employer since graduating from college: The Washington Post. And I hope to spend my entire career there. Im the least educated person in my family. My brother, my father, my uncles and both grandfathers have doctorates. (My brother is on track to get two!) My mother and my maternal grandmother have masters degrees. With just a bachelors, Im the black sheep. Ive wanted to be a newspaper reporter since I was in the 5th grade. I couldnt have worked in Baghdad — and by extension, I couldnt have written Imperial Life in the Emerald City — without the help of several very brave Iraqis who were my translators, drivers and guards. They are my heroes and Im eternally grateful to them.
