Walking Through Fire: Iraqis' Struggle for Justice and Reconciliation by Peggy Faw Gish
Through Iraqis' eyes and through their stories, this book "tells the truth" about what war and the US government's anti-terrorism policies have really meant for them. Iraqis recount the abuses they experienced the US and new Iraqi detention systems, the excessive violence and collective punishment of the US-led occupying forces, as well as the tensions between Kurds and Arab Iraqis. The book also gives a glimpse of how the author, a peace worker, immersed in the violence and chaos of war, dealt with the pain and suffering of those around her, as well as her own personal losses and kidnapping ordeal.
