Unintended Consequences

Peter W. Galbraith, , read by Alan Sklar. . Tantor Audio, $24.99 (0pp) ISBN 978-1-4001-0776-6

With clear and methodical discussion, Galbraith provides a detailed account of the significant negative outcomes from the U.S.'s war with Iraq. This assessment identifies the failures and future problems created by the Bush administration, whose actions fly in the face of their democratic rhetoric. Though his argument (the U.S. is less safe now because of the Iraq invasion) is no different than others', Galbraith explores the specific problems surrounding Iraq and Middle East politics since the Iraq invasion that the administration created. Alan Sklar proves masterful in his delivery, with excellent emphasis of specific key words and ability to give textual weight to full sentences. His deep yet gentle voice lulls listeners into a rhythm that makes the book flow smoothly. His cool delivery and matter-of-fact tone lends additional authority to an already powerful and impressive book. A Simon & Schuster hardcover (Reviews, Aug. 25). (Dec.)
