7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Anthony R. Dimaggio on September 24, 2009
Format: Paperback
This book provides probably the best critical introduction to the Iraq war. It covers issues such as the privatization of Iraq, the U.S. counterinsurgency war, the surge, and the deterioration and eventual disintegration of the country formerly known as Iraq. Schwartz's insights shed much light on U.S. goals in Iraq, while not coming off as polemical or partisan. His analysis is accurate and empirical/based on strong evidence. I recommend this book strongly for all looking to learn about Iraq. I am currently using it for a course I'm teaching on Citizens and Governance.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on January 10, 2009
Format: Paperback
Terror is a concept, not a nation. So how does the United States win its war on Terror? "War Without End: The Iraq War in Context" is a critical examination of the long running war on Iraq. Arguing that the ongoing United States occupation of Iraq is doing far more harm than good, inciting civil war and unrest within the country. Criticizing the government's motives and how a thirst for oil and not spreading democracy may be pushing the war, "War Without End" is a solid and recommended read for political readers.

Format: Paperback
It demostrates that this war against Irak was as a first step to principaly control the middle east oil, and then as much of the world by the dominating forces in the US, the Industrial and Finance elite.

This is a powerful book about American military/industrial presence in Iraq. From weapons of mass destruction to an "eternal" military presence in the Middle East, this book connects a lot of dots. In one of the most protracted and inhumanly cruel wars in American history, War Without End shows who really profits in Iraq and who are being oppressed and duped.

Format: Paperback
THIS IS THE MOST CONVINCING AND WELL DOCUMENTED BOOK ON THE ORIGINS OF THE IRAQ WAR AND THE REASONS THE U. S. WILL LOSE IT. I HAVE READ DOZENS OF BOOKS ON THE TOPIC. I DISAGREE WITH THE AUTHOR ON OTHER MATTERS BUT THIS IS AN EXCELLENT WORK.
