Chain Of Command : The Road from 9/11 to Abu Ghraib (GRP)
The basic text of the book will be comprised of the author's articles that have appeared in the New Yorker magazine over the past three years, offering an unflinching look behind the public story of the Bush Administration's "war on terror," its intelligence failures, and the lies and obsessions that led America into Iraq. With an introduction by David Remnick, the book will also include a number of previously unpublished stories, as well as an account of Hersh's pursuit of the Abu Ghraib piece and of where, he believes, responsibility for the scandal ultimately lies.

About Seymour M. Hersh
Thirty-five years ago, Seymour Hersh established himself at the forefront of investigative journalism with an expose of the massacre in My Lai, Vietnam, for which he won a Pulitzer Prize. Ever since, he's been a relentless thorn in the side of America's power elite, plumbing Washington back channels and the intelligence community for the stories others can't - or won't - get. In the crises that followed the September 11th attacks, Hersh found a challenge equal to his explosive energy. From the hunt for the hijackers to the dubious claims about weapons of mass destruction, Hersh delivered inspired pieces that have been met with both acclaim and outrage - including his breakthrough reporting on Abu Ghraib.
