Written over a four-year period and originally conceived as Notes from a Homeland War Diary, these concise, provocative essays record on-going reactions - reports from the war zone - to what Joan Didion calls the źnew normal under the Bush Administration. They rethink questions of power, political authority, patriotism, democracy, science, civil society, and the academy. Flags in the Window should be read by everyone who has an interest in the alternative view of the Iraq War.
