Feldman's book offers a very detailed legalistic and ethics-driven view of the occupation of Iraq, producing a short book packed with argument, however often making it somewhat unwielding and hard to get to grips with. Prepare to have to re-read sentences, paragraphs - even chapters - to fully grasp Feldman's arguments. But it will be worth it.
