    1. Essays on the Iraq War5 May 2012 I should open by suggesting that this book was not actually written by Naomi Klein, and I am glad that I checked up on this before I wrote this review. The main reason is because it originally was supposed to be an essay that Klein wrote on the Iraq War, however the problem was that the essay that she wrote was free, and also she was writing the Shock Doctrine at the time which included everything that the essay contained, but in a much more expanded format.

    2. Several essays in this book! All fantastic and although everything has taken place it's important to have a look out for narratives at the time. Especially the "No terrorism" essay

    5. This is a bite-sized version of the ideas that would become The Shock Doctrine. Available free and online. Definitely worth an hour or so of your time.

    6. War has become advertising – packaged propaganda where true intent is buried. This collection of essays reflects on how the neocons beat the drums of war in Iraq and brought a country to its knees.
