"The book takes its readers on a journey, introducing them to different faces and facets of the country and showing them that no matter how embattled and dispersed cultural production in Iraq has become, it contains beauty even in the most desperate of situations."—Middle East Journal of Culture and Communication

"Like art itself, this book combines the personal with the political, the material with the visionary, in order to address reality. Rooted in history, it presents new perspectives for the future. For Iraqis to reclaim their humanity has global implications."—Jordan Times

"We Are Iraqis vividly describes and relives this ebb and flow of catastrophe and rebirth via a remarkably rich collection of essays, poems, interviews, and memoirs."—Review of Middle East Studies

"In a very touching account, We Are Iraqis strikes the right chord within Iraqi popular memory, hooking readers’ attention towards the suffering of the Iraqi people in general and the middle class in particular. Highly recommended."—Choice
