More Information

Aziz's vantage point is unique: she is a journalist, an anthropologist, and an Arab woman. As a freelance journalist, she exposes the mainstream press's failure to cover the embargo-an unprecedented story that even today has many implications for the current conflict-and offers revealing insights into the embargo history. As a social anthropologist, Aziz examines every aspect of Iraqi culture that was systematically attacked and destroyed by both the embargo and the incasion. And as an Arab, she understands teh etraordinary will of the Iraqi people and their deeprooted love for their country. As Aziz points out, in that sense Iraqis are little different from Americans.
