having worked in Afghanistan and other conflict countries,I consider this is one of the best books to be produced on the situation. The approach of telling the stories from all sides is compelling social history. It makes us understand the futility of western style politics and solutions in the face of culture and above all the struggle for survival of the individual and their families.
Very good book - it shows the Afghan conflict from the perspective of an "American Ally", "American Enemy" and a civilian. The book goes way beyond what happened after 9/11 and it really helps understand the historical roots of the tensions in Afghanistan.
A fantastic book, well written and absorbing - I read it from cover to cover in one sitting - truly insightful analysis of Afghanistan and a must read for any one with a passing interest in Afghan events over the last decade
very interesting book; gives new insights of life in Afghanistan over the last 20 years. One gets a pretty good idea of all the hardships that the population had to endure, due to a few mind-twisted warlords, religious fanatics, but also certain actions of the US-boots on the ground.
No Good Men Among the Living (American Empire Project). I have read about Afganistan on several occasions and what can I say about this book? Only it is the best book I have every read and it deserves an award. Buy it and read it; you will not regret it. I hope the author produces more books on this country.
