This is on online journal posted by a young Iraqi architect during the days before the US invaded Iraq. Fascinating.

I really enjoyed this book, including some of the asides on the debate over whether or not Pax was a real Iraqi or some American fake. (The name is an obvious pseudonym, being the Arabic and Latin words for "peace"). There are some great notes here about what everyday life was like for the ordinary Iraqi citizen. Completely captivating reading.
