One of the more powerful modern-day meditations on Sophocles' Ajax, Ajax in Iraq recounts the ancient tale alongside one much more familiar. American arrogance in the guise of global peacekeeping benevolence is no longer a surprising narrative to us. Yet Ms. McLaughlin's tale about the cost of war and the abuse of power in all its forms continues to be relevant, again and again and again.
