From inside a surreal bubble of pure Americana known as the Green Zone, the US-led Coalition Provisional Authority attempted to rule Iraq following th e fall of Saddam Hussein's regime. Drawing on interviews and internal docum ents, Rajiv Chandrasekaran tells the memorable story of this ill-prepared a ttempt to build American democracy in a war-torn Middle Eastern country, de tailing not only the risky disbanding of the Iraqi army and the ludicrous a ttempt to train the new police force, but absurdities such as the aide who based Baghdad's new traffic laws on those of the state of Maryland, downloa ded from the net, and the twenty-four-year-old who had never worked in fina nce put in charge of revitalising Baghdad's stock exchange. Imperial Life i n the Emerald City is American reportage at its best.
