Praise for BEYOND THE GREEN ZONE with a Foreword by Amy Goodman of Democracy Now!

"Every conflict spawns a handful of journalists who are willing to not only brave the war zone but to seek out the stories ignored by the press pack. The Iraq War has brought us Dahr Jamail. Jamail's account will prove an enduring document of what really happened during the chaotic years of occupation, and how it transformed ordinary Iraqis.

If years from now, Americans are willing to read any books about the war, this one should be among them. It tells everything."
-Mother Jones magazine


"From the earliest days of the war, Dahr Jamail has been a human conduit for the voices of Iraqis living under U.S. occupation. In the face of tremendous personal risk, his commitment to the crucial, principled task of bearing witness has never wavered, and this extraordinary book is the result."
-Naomi Klein, author, No Logo and The Shock Doctrine


"While the powerful media conglomerates embedded on the ground with the invading and occupying forces, Jamail embedded with the suffering people of Iraq and uncovered the horrors of this war of 'liberation.' Dahr Jamail is the conscience of American war reporting, the quintessential unembedded reporter."
-Jeremy Scahill, New York Times best-selling author of Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army
