Editorial Reviews

Review

Alen Silva's window on the tragedy of Afghanistan is a wondrous demonstration of the value art can bring to life. His work vividly depicts the history, the haunting beauty, the glory and the horror of Afghanistan. This book rips at the conscience while it begs for a future for this ravaged land. --mikefarrell.org

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
I am a huge fan of photographic books, and I find this one to be very worthwhile, but not quite a five star offering because it does not have quite the diversity -- or reading clarity -- that I would have liked. Never-the-less, it is a vital contribution to the literature on Afghanistan, and what does come out from the book, a mix of photographs by one man and short novella stories by a number of invited authors, is the bleakness of what has been wrought in Afghanistan, and most especially, the human toll in "collateral damage" of children and men (mostly) who have lost one leg and all too often both legs to land mines.
