Iraq: A Journey of Hope and Peace is a memorial of one woman's experience among the Christian Peacemaker Teams' work in Iraq before, during, and after the 2003 war. A deadly serious assessment of struggling to help those who have suffered in the aftermath of war, and also a sharply critical account of American disregard for human rights in its use of military force, indiscriminate detainment, and even horrific abuse such as that publicized about the Abu Ghraib prison. Iraq: A Journey of Hope and Peace warns how America is alienating even those Iraqis who supported the invasion, and characterizes the ongoing occupation as one that is not striving to rebuild, turn over power, and get out but attempting to stay long-term in order to reap financial benefits. Above all, Iraq: A Journey of Hope and Peace strives to present the viewpoint of those who are directly affected by the American war with Iraq and its aftermath, unshielded by propaganda or political agendas beyond the desire to promote healing. Highly recommended.
