by James Dobbin
Publisher: RAND Corporation 2009
Number of pages: 412
The American engagement in Iraq has been looked at from many perspectives — the flawed intelligence that provided the war's rationale, the failed effort to secure an international mandate, the rapid success of the invasion, and the long ensuing counterinsurgency campaign. This book focuses on the activities of the Coalition Provisional Authority and its administrator. It is based on interviews with many of those responsible for setting and implementing occupation policy.
