Unembedded Summary

Unembedded: Four Independent Photojournalists on the War in Iraq by GhaithAlford Kael Abdul-Ahad

Unembedded bears witness to the enduring power of independent journalism. In their unflinching look at war-ravaged Iraq, four freelance photojournalists show that life there is brutal yet poignant; that compassion co-exists with anger, hatred and fear. By gaining the confidence of Iraqi civilians and insurgents, these photojournalists have brought back images of life in wartime, from beauty parlours and joyful wedding scenes to the carnage of civilian casualties, the heartbroken faces of grieving parents, and the glassy-eyed shock of parentless children.
Working outside the US military's official eembedding' programme, the authors bring us face-to-face with the people of Iraq. They combine photographs and essays with excerpts from two years of personal letters, journal entries, and feature stories to take us across front lines and cultural barriers into the lives of a nation in crisis. Theirs is a path to understanding the cost of war

Unembedded Reviews

iThe photos that were chosen for this book . . . simply took my breath away. Somehow, the images that get into newspapers lack the sort of heart and compassion and pain, and occasional moments of whimsy, that you four captured. . . . I thank you all for putting these images together and helping people see the real human costs of this war.i Scott Baldauf, Christian Science Monitor
