A Time of Our Choosing: America's War in Iraq

Todd S. Purdum and the staff of the New York Times
Henry Holt
hardcover
$25

Synthesizing writings from various staff reporters from the New York Times, the single largest newsgathering organization in the history of humankind, Purdum has compiled a surprisingly readable account of the Iraq War. He also explores the consequences of Bush's radical doctrine of pre-emptive war and what it might mean for the future.
