Hard Lessons: The Iraq Reconstruction Experience

Recorded on May 5, 2009

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium


Stuart Bowen, Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, will address the tactical and strategic lessons learned from Iraq and discuss his recently published book, Hard Lessons: The Iraq Reconstruction Experience, considered, by many, to be the definitive work on contingency relief and reconstruction operations in Iraq.  Hard Lessons provides a comprehensive account of what went wrong with Iraqi reconstruction efforts and offers insights that policymakers may find particularly useful in efforts to reform the U.S. approach to contingency relief and reconstruction operations.
