Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up—Although this is not strictly a book for young adults, the length of the essays (most are under 10 pages) and the well-balanced viewpoints make it a good choice for teens looking to learn about the Iraq war beyond the headlines. Sections cover planning for the war, its conduct, the Department of Defense, and the use of national power. Contributors include senators, military leaders, academics, and foreign-policy experts. Many of the essays have a "lessons learned" theme. Those on the lack of real planning for the war and declining media coverage of Iraq would make interesting starting points for discussions on current events. Some of the more technical essays would make good source material for research papers. No end matter is included, other than biographical sketches of the contributors.—Rebecca Donnelly, Loma Colorado Public Library, Rio Rancho, NM
