Resumo:

"Hers was a country of lives interrupted. And like Iraq, Karima - a widow with eight children - had weathered twenty years of wars, sanctions, and dictatorship. As night drew near and bombs began to fall once more on Baghdad, she took her son to board a rickety bus to Mosul, where he would reluctantly join Saddam's army. "God protect you, " she said, handing him something she could not afford to give - the thirty-cent fare." "The Washington Post's Anthony Shadid also went to war in Iraq in 2003 - as a reporter. Fluent in Arabic, a veteran observer of the Middle East, Shadid hoped to explain the complexities of post-9/11 Arab identity and to tell the human story of the American invasion's impact on Iraqi lives. For months, as democratic ideals clashed with Arab notions of justice, he disappeared into dangerous, divided streets and towns, filing front-page dispatches that quickly established him as one of the most truthful and admired journalists on the scene." "Now, drawing on Iraqi history and travels elsewhere in the Arab world, Shadid weaves together an epic narrative that shows how Iraq - oversimplified by those who perceived it merely as a nation victimized by a repressive despot - was transformed in unexpected ways by the fall of Saddam and the arrival of the Americans. Night Draws Near illustrates the dramatic, unforeseen consequences that the U.S. invasion unleashed in this wounded but resilient nation, where the present is shaped by remembered glories of the past, the horrors of recent wars, and new resentments toward the West."--BOOK JACKET.
