Oral history is a difficult genre to master, and by taking the works of Studs Terkel as his example, Mark Kukis has set the bar even higher. Yet he succeeds brilliantly, not only by the aptness and vividness of these accounts but also by his selection of the interviewees.(Ali A. Allawi, former Minister of Finance, Defense, and Trade of Iraq, and senior visiting fellow at Princeton University)
Amid the looting and the blood-letting in Baghdad, Mark Kukis salvages some treasures. Voices from Iraq is like nothing we've seen yet in the writing on the warthe stories of everyday survival weave a tapestry both illuminating and haunting. No serious study of the invasion and occupation can do without this book.(Quil Lawrence, former NPR Baghdad Bureau chief and author of Invisible Nation: How the Kurds' Quest for Statehood Is Shaping Iraq and the Middle East)
