This book certainly conveys the essential character of Malalai Joya as can be viewed on her various webcasts, such as those broadcast on Youtube, for those, like myself, who have not had the opportunity to see her at any of her speaking engagements.
The co-authorship by Derrick O'Keefe has worked well, with the addition of naturalised English and a consistency of style throughout the book. Although her comments about the quality of the Afghan government and the Afghan parliament are generally accurate, she has somewhat created a position for herself where she is winning all the arguments, but has marginalized herself and her efficacy, so much so, that she has no support beyond those, including her constituency, who have no power to make a difference.
Her greatest lack of judgment is with regard to the US, its policy and armed forces. Without the US intervention, there would be no European intervention and the Taleban would still be in total control of Afghanistan. The US are occupying a position as per the self-interest of the US in the region, within the context of which, Afghans, including Malalai Joya have an opportunity to develop a democracy. And although this is hampered by the obvious lack of virtue of the warlords, fundamentalists, et al, the US does not want to get embroiled in the China Town that is Afghan culture and tribal and ethnic loyalties. That's for the Afghans to figure out, for themselves.
In addition, she should make some effort to be cooperative with some of the more agreeable entities of Afghan politics. Dr Abdullah Abdullah would not be a bad choice. After all, as Hans Herman Hoppe, et al, have pointed out, democracy has its limitations. And Malalai Joya aspires to be involved in politics, not a popularity contest.
