Muqtada al-Sadr


Currently in London, Cockburn is available for a limited number of interviews. He is author of the just-published Muqtada: Muqtada al-Sadr, the Shia Revival, and the Struggle for Iraq. An excerpt from the book is available online.

Seymour Hersh has called Cockburn, who writes for the British paper The Independent, “quite simply, the best Western journalist at work in Iraq today.” His previous books include The Occupation: War, Resistance and Daily Life in Iraq.
