Summary Book Review Ballad for Baghdad :

Download or read book Ballad for Baghdad written by Ali Elizabeth Turner and published by Morgan James Publishing. This book was released on 2008-11-01 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “Want to know the real story of the war in Iraq? This is it. I love this book!” (New York Times–bestselling author Lt. Col. Robert “Buzz” Patterson) In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Ali Turner was a fully committed anti-war protestor. Caught up in the wave of aggressive activism that swept through the nation’s college campuses Ali, in her own words, “passionately wanted to see America destroyed.” Decades later, she was stirred to action once again. This time as a fierce supporter of the military, living in a combat zone in an increasingly unpopular war. From 2004 to 2007, Ali had the chance of a lifetime to atone for the past and say a belated “thank you” for her freedom by working in Morale, Welfare, and Recreation centers in Baghdad. She heard the courageous and compassionate stories of hundreds of Iraqis, Coalition soldiers, Navy SEALS, interpreters, Army Rangers, and contractors from around the world. She was in Baghdad for the return of Iraq to the Iraqis, three Iraqi elections, and Saddam’s trial and execution. An inspiring new perspective on Operation Iraqi Freedom, Ballad for Baghdad is an “endearing and spiritual story about self-redemption” written by a woman on an unforgettable, three-year odyssey on the frontlines (Major Sean Michael Flynn, author of The Fighting 69th).

Book excerpt: Thaer Abdallah is a Palestinian artist and human rights activist who was born in Iraq and grew up in Baghdad in a one-bedroom apartment with his 12 brothers and sisters. Together they survived three wars and unbelievable challenges, culminating in the kidnapping and torture of Palestinian community members following the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Thaer’s story of hope and resilience leads him from the streets of Baghdad to the empty desert, from loneliness to love, from the pain of imprisonment and torture to an impossible dream of new life in a foreign land. His example of courage and survival gives hope to all who suffer seemingly insurmountable challenges, and shines a light through the darkness of our times.

Summary Book Review ISIS :

Download or read book ISIS written by Michael Weiss and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2016-04-12 with total page 448 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Fully Revised & Updated Edition of the New York Times Bestselling and Highly Praised Book on ISIS With newly added material and breaking news including: —Interview with a former ISIS spymaster —Why ISIS is targeting Europe and the US —What Russia wants in Syria —Revelations on the brutal ideology of ISIS With brutal attacks in last year across the globe—Brussels, Paris, Beirut, Egypt, Turkey—the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has proved itself the greatest terrorist threat in the world today. They have conquered massive territories in Syria and Iraq in a bid to create a new Muslim caliphate under the strict dictates of Sharia law. In this fully revised and updated edition of ISIS: Inside the Army of Terror, American journalist Michael Weiss and Syrian analyst Hassan Hassan explain how these violent extremists evolved from a nearly defeated Iraqi insurgent group into a jihadi army of international volunteers who, with slickly produced murder videos, are spreading violence and mayhem across the globe. Beginning with the early days of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the founder of ISIS’s first incarnation, Weiss and Hassan explain who the key players are—from their leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to the former Saddam Baathists in their ranks—where they come from, how they have attracted both local and global support, and how they operate—from their social media strategy to their illicit oil revenues. As money and matériel continue to flow into the region to combat the ISIS’s spreading terror, other forces—Assad’s regime, Russian planes, Iranian Quds Forces, and other Shiite militias—are gaining power and using the fight against ISIS as a means to leverage their agenda in the region. Political and military maneuvering by the United States, Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Russia have fueled ISIS’s explosive expansion. In five new chapters, the authors delve further into the inner workings of the Army of Terror and what it is like to live under their ever-tightening rule. With invaluable and exclusive insider information, the authors explore the Islamic State’s enigmatic recruitment and training methods, the impact of their military successes and failures, and how they structure and empower home-grown cells worldwide to carry out their terror. Drawing on original interviews with former US military officials and current ISIS fighters—and brand-new interviews with a former ISIS spy, as well as Kurdish and Yazidi survivors of the ISIS’s assault on northern Iraq—the authors reveal the internecine struggles within the movement itself, as well as ISIS’s bloody hatred of Shiite Muslims, which is generating another sectarian war in the region. A new generation of terror has dawned in the world and to understand how to stop it, we must understand who they are.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A lively and polemical analysis of photography and today's vernacular photographic culture. In Photography After Capitalism, Benedict Burbridge makes the case for a radically expanded conception of photography, encompassing the types of labor too often obscured by black-boxed technologies, slick platform interfaces, and the compulsion to display lives to others. His lively and polemical analysis of today's vernacular photographic cultures shines new light on the hidden work of smartphone assembly teams, digital content moderators, Street View car drivers, Google "Scan-Ops,"low-paid gallery interns, homeless participant photographers, and the photo-sharing masses.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As the Sun of Suns Rose: The Darkness of the Creeds Was Dispelled is the first of the eight books of Sehje Rachio Khalsa of Harinder Singh Mehboob, who had written it in a revealed and metaphysical approach after a continuous meditative study for thirty to thirty-five years of world religions, prophets, philosophy, history, psychology, mythology, world folklore, and the different forms of literature as the world epic, divine poetry, fiction, drama, and different types of prose of the elite genius of the world. In this large book, the poet/writer raises so many questions about the decline of world religions with the passage of time, the concept of pure history, the concept of death, the concept of greater holy war, the concept of pure nature, the concept of ecstasy (vismad), the concept of eternal victory, etc. In this book, he describes the answer to the above questions in detail in the most convincing ways. In this worlds history of more than four thousand years, this book can be compared only with very few books that are authorized as distinctive classics as the Bezels of Wisdom by Ibn al-Arabi, The Awakening of Faith by Ashav Ghousha, Kashful Majub by Data Ganj Hujbiri, etc.

Download or read book The Star And Baghdad Scimitar written by Sy Aslan and published by . This book was released on 2004-08 with total page 293 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Widad, a Jewish singer with a golden voice, captured the heart of Moslem Iraq during the forties through the seventies. Her talent brought her fame and prestige yet caused her a lifelong dilemma. While her Jewish community, ancient and prosperous, was being persecuted and chased out of the country, she had to choose between joining her fellow Jews or remaining in Iraq, her cherished birthplace. Widad began her singing career at the age of seventeen and became the protégée of the Moslem ruling elite. The king, the regent, the ministers were her devoted fans. Her exposure and connections with Moslems led to romantic involvement. But her Jewish roots stood in the way. Meanwhile, political turmoil assailed Iraq Pan-Arabism, Communism and the Arab Israeli conflict, which fueled anti-Semitic oppression. One coup followed another ending with the regime of Saddam Hussein. The tumultuous events, as much as her own choices, determined Widad's fate and destiny. The story portrays the Jewish community, its culture, and its relationship to the Arabs and to Israel. It also depicts the Moslem community within the social and political struggle of the time. Though the story is fictional, it is based on actual historical events and is inspired by the life of a famous Iraqi Jewish singer whose contribution to the local music has yet to be matched. *** About the Author Born in Iraq, Tova Murad Sadka experienced many of the events described in her book. Escaping persecution, she immigrated to Israel where she worked as a newspaper correspondent and published short stories in various magazines. Her earlier novel No Way Back is a chronicle of the first phase of the Jewish mass emigration from Iraq.
