The Critics:

Praise for Dancing in the No-Fly Zone

"It...touches places in the nation's soul that horror headlines never reach."  

- Boyd Tonkin, literary critic of the London Independent  Review

"In the midst of a flurry of publications on Iraq by journalists, politicians, diplomats, and academics, Hadani Ditmars' work undoubtedly stands out. Her book is not only engaging, interesting, original, and perceptive, but she has clearly done her homework. The book is full of information that provides the reader with a historical context and insight into the human cost of sanctions and war. Yet it is not just a book about misery. Dancing in the No-Fly Zone is about people pursuing art, culture, music, and entertainment despite economic deterioration, repression, and later on, war and occupation."      - Nadje Al-Ali, Anglo-Iraqi academic

"Of the plethora of books out there on Iraq, Dancing in the No-Fly Zone has a sense of reality and immediacy difficult to match...Ditmars adds layers to the nameless, countless individuals we see for nanoseconds, flashing across our screens, as another atrocity is announced. The cultural richness, stoicism and adaptability of Iraqis clenches at the heart muscles... This text is a reference on human courage and normalcy in the face of utter chaos." - Miriam Cook, UK's Open Democracy
