Across Cultures and Empires, by Dr. Mahir Ibrahimov, Culture and Area Studies Office (CASO)

Life Looking Death in the Eye: The Iraqi War as Experienced by a U.S. Army Contractor, by Dr. Mahir Ibrahimov, Culture and Area Studies Office (CASO)
In Life Looking Death in the Eye, author Mahir Ibrahimov provides detailed observations of life in the villages he visited, attacks on the U.S. bases, and frustration with a slow-moving bureaucracy to acquire U.S. citizenship. Ibrahimov then couples this with intellectually-packed explanations of social, religious, and political factors that he believes are responsible for the Iraqi war.
