My holy war; dispatches from the home front.


My holy war; dispatches from the home front.

Raban, Jonathan.

New York Review Books


193 pages



New York Review Books collection


Raban (a frequent contributor to The New York Review of Books and other publications) characterizes this collection as "an irregular personal diary of the period from September 11 [2001] to the beginning of George W. Bush's second term." His essays, written from the perspective of an Englishman living in the US for the past 15 years, documents the political and cultural transformation of the US in the "war on terror," a transformation that has made the public and official face of the country appear ever more foreign both to the author and to an increasing number of Americans.
