Reviews

Christian Parenti's was reporting is so fresh and flavorful--so somberly real--it makes you wonder why it is so rare. His work reminds me of the great war reporting from the distant past, when correspondents were observers, writing letters from the front to convey what they actually saw and heard, the gore and the boredom together.
"For those who desire a taste of what occupied Iraq feels and smells and tastes like for the war correspondents, soldiers and Iraqis dealing with the mess that is 'free' Iraq, The Freedom is essential reading." --San Diego Union-Tribune

"[Parenti] has an eye for the perfect image, a wonderful ear for dialogue and a prose style that floats across the page." --Las Vegas Mercury

"The Freedom, a short, fast-paced book, scenic like a good film script, is steeped in the irony and horror of war." --Los Angeles Times
