Consequently he comes to a conclusion that its original meaning was much distorted. In the course, the author reviews in detail the structure of constitutional order of the time. The views Taylor expresses here were new only to his contemporaries, and actually appear to be a return to the views of the men who wrote and confirmed the Constitution.

Anthony Shadid is a brilliant ‘Washington Post’ reporter and a long-time writer on the Middle East. He is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who has been covering the Iraq conflict since the time it has begun. In this book he adds those elements of the war that have been either censored or edited so that at last readers may have an intelligent observer's report of what has happened. This is a story that will disturb and enlighten. Shadid divides "Night Draws Near Iraqs People in the Shadow of Americas War" into five parts. In the first section he shows the anxious fear of people under the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein. In the second part it goes about people's terror of the attacks by the American troops with the bombings of precious places as well as homes. In the third part he addresses that part of disaster that follows disaster - the criminal marauding and devastation of museums and mosques and public facilities that most Iraqis viewed with embarrassed disgust. The fourth part reveals debased hopes of people told they were being liberated while instead they were captured, questioned, and disenfranchised. The final part studies the revolt, the terrifying extremes to which the Iraqis have come such as suicide bombings, retaliation, guerilla warfare - all of those ends to which these people have been thrust as a means to regain their dignity and identity. The book exposes the problems and facts that have always been hidden, and that’s one of the reasons why it should be read.
