Teaching for Change's Busboys and Poets Bookstore welcomes Greg Muttitt to discuss and sign his new book,Fuel on the Fire: Oil and Politics in Occupied Iraq

The departure of the last U.S. troops from Iraq at the end of 2011 left a broken country and a host of unanswered questions. What was the war really about? Why and how did the occupation drag on for nearly nine years? And why did the troops have to leave? Now, in a gripping account of the war that dominated the last decade, investigative journalist Greg Muttitt takes us behind the scenes to answer these questions and tells the untold story of the oil politics that played out through the occupation.

Greg Muttitt is currently the campaigns and policy director for the antipoverty organization War on Want and the former co-director of the campaigning charity Platform. His articles have appeared in publications such as The Guardian, the Financial Times, and The Independent. He lives in London.

This event is free and open to all.
