Moiss Nam, The Washington Post Book World Mr Chandrasekarans book, while nonfiction, is as chilling an indictment of Americas tragic cultural myopia as Graham Greenes prescient 1955 novel of the American debacle in Indochina, The Quiet American. Frank Rich, The New York Times Op EdChandrasekarans detail rich reporting and firsthand, candid narrative is what sets his contribution apart from other books about the Iraq war and bolsters his withering assessment Using nearly two years of reporting in the country for the Washington Post and an impeccable eye for the tragic and outrageous, Chandrasekaran unveils the occupation authority compound as a Middle East Oz, grossly out of touch with the harsh realities of the real Iraq The book is an eye opening tour of ineptitude, misdirection and perils of democracy building Andrew Metz, Newsday With acuity and a fine sense of the absurd, the author peels back the roof to reveal an ant heap of arrogance, ineptitude, and hayseed provincialism Amanda Heller, Boston GlobeA devastating indictment of the post invasion failures of the Bush administration. Jay Freeman, BooklistIn Imperial Life in the Emerald City Chandrasekaran draws a vividly detailed portrait of the Green Zone and the Coalition Provisional Authority which ran Iraqs government from April 2003 to June 2004 that becomes a metaphor for the administrations larger failings in Iraq His book gives the reader a visceralsometimes sickeningpicture of how the administration and its handpicked crew bungled the first year in postwar Iraq, showing how decisions made in that period contributed to a burgeoning insurgency and growing ethnic and religious strife The picture Mr Chandrasekaran draws in these pages often reads like something out of Catch 22 or from MASH. Michiko Kakutani, The New York TimesExtraordinary Indispensable Full of jaw dropping tales of the myriad large and small ways in which Bremer and his team poured fuel into the lethal cauldron that is todays Iraq Chandrasekaran has a keen eye for the small detail that illuminates larger truths he documents the way that an avalanche of unjustifiable mistakes transforms a difficult mission into an impossible one Chandrasekaran does not set out to score partisan points or unveil large geopolitical lessons he is, essentially, a reporter telling readers what he saw Yet it is impossible to read his book without thinking about the larger implications of the story he tells. Moiss Nam, The Washington Post Book WorldThis is a devastating account of the American occupation of Iraq It shows how Americans arrived in Iraq full of big plans and or lucrative contracts to help the country become like the United States, but wound up living an isolated existence while the lives of Iraqis deteriorated around them No other book has described so well what Iraq looked like and felt like in the aftermath of the invasion.James Mann, author of Rise of the VulcansRajiv Chandrasekaran has not given us another Iraq book He has given us a riveting tale of American misadventure He shows us American idealism and voyeurism, as well as the deadly results of American hubris And by giving us the first full picture from inside the Green Zone, he depicts a mission doomed to failure before it had even been launched.Samantha Power, author of A Problem from Hell America and the Age of GenocideThis is a dazzling, important, and entertaining work of reportage about the American civilians who tried to remake Iraq, and about the strange, isolated city state in Baghdad where they failed Every American who wants to understand how and why things went so badly wrong in Iraq should read this book.Steve Coll, author of Ghost WarsThis amazing book pulls back the curtains of deception and reveals in stunning fashion what really went on inside the Emerald City in the crucial year after the military overthrow of Saddam Hussein Chandrasekarans reporting is vivid and relentless as he documents the mix of idealism, confidence, energy, hubris, political miscalculation, cultural blindness, and fantastical thinking of those who came to save Iraq yet made a difficult situation worse.David Maraniss, author of They Marched Into SunlightAn extraordinarily vivid and compelling anatomy of a fiasco Imperial Life in the Emerald City is an indispensable saga of how the American liberation of Iraq turned to chaos, calamity, and civil war Chandrasekaran takes us inside Baghdads Green Zone as no one else has.Rick Atkinson, author of The Long Gray LineAn unprecedented account of life in Baghdads Green Zone, a walled off enclave of towering plants, posh villas, and sparkling swimming pools that was the headquarters for the American occupation of Iraq The Washington Posts former Baghdad bureau chief Rajiv Chandrasekaran takes us with him into the Zone into a bubble, cut off from wartime realities, where the task of reconstructing a devastated nation competed with the distractions of a Little Americaa half dozen bars stocked with cold beer, a disco where women showed up in hot pants, a movie theater that screened shoot em up films, an all you could eat buffet piled high with pork, a shopping mall that sold pornographic movies, a parking lot filled with shiny new SUVs, and a snappy dry cleaning servicemuch of it run by Halliburton Most Iraqis were barred from entering the Emerald City for fear they would blow it up Drawing on hundreds of interviews and internal documents, Chandrasekaran tells the story of the people and ideas that inhabited the Green Zone during the occupation, from the imperial viceroy L Paul Bremer III to the fleet of twentysomethings hired to implement the idea that Americans could build a Jeffersonian democracy in an embattled Middle Eastern country In the vacuum of postwar planning, Bremer ignores what Iraqis tell him they want or need and instead pursues irrelevant neoconservative solutionsa flat tax, a sell off of Iraqi government assets, and an end to food rationing His underlings spend their days drawing up pie in the sky policies, among them a new traffic code and a law protecting microchip designs, instead of rebuilding looted buildings and restoring electricity production His almost comic initiatives anger the locals and help fuel the insurgency Chandrasekaran details Bernard Keriks ludicrous attempt to train the Iraqi police and brings to light lesser known but typical travesties the case of the twenty four year old who had never worked in finance put in charge of reestablishing Baghdads stock exchange a contractor with no previous experience paid millions to guard a closed airport a State Department employee forced to bribe Americans to enlist their help in preventing Iraqi weapons scientists from defecting to Iran Americans willing to serve in Iraq screened by White House officials for their views on Roe v Wade people with prior expertise in the Middle East excluded in favor of lesser qualified Republican Party loyalists Finally, he describes Bremers ignominious departure in 2004, fleeing secretly in a helicopter two days ahead of schedule This is a startling portrait of an Oz like place where a vital aspect of our governments folly in Iraq played out It is a book certain to be talked about for years to come.
