In Search of Iraq: Baghdad to Babylon by Richard Downes

From 1998 until the chaotic aftermath of the invasion, news reporter Richard Downes witnessed firsthand the changes that have overwhelmed the Iraqi people. In Search of Iraq goes far deeper into the environment than the daily news. Small events of ordinary life and whispered conversations in back alleys are as telling as the grand political statements. With a keen focus on the customs, religion, culture and historical diversity of all the communities in the region, Downes reveals the true impact of war, as well as the friendships that can blossom in a country torn to shreds. What emerges is a stunning memorial to a disintegrating nation isolated through international sanctions.

About the Author

Richard Downes is a journalist living in Dublin. For three and a half years he crossed the African continent covering wars, insurrections and catastrophes. His BBC posting Jordan brought him to the Mideast in 1998, and he subsequently found his niche in Iraq. Vincent Browne, prominent Irish columnist and radio host, described him as "the best reporter covering the war." He has continued to travel to Iraq in the chaotic post-war era.
