Editorial Reviews

Review


"presents a richly detailed and complex historical narrative ... for scholars of Afghanistan, US foreign policy, international relations, and counterinsurgency studies, the wealth of details about the Taliban, the Afghan government, and the intersection with counterinsurgency programs makes for an important, and ultimately, sobering read." -- James Bradford, H-Net


About the Author


Carter Malkasian spent nearly two years in the Afghan district of Garmser, in war torn Helmand province as a political officer for the US Department of State. For the last decade, he has studied war, and written about it, and worked in war zones, including long stints in Iraq's Al Anbar province. The author of Counterinsurgency in Modern Warfare (named by Foreign Affairs as one of the ten books to read on counterinsurgency) and A History of Modern Wars of Attrition, he has also served as the director of the stability and development program at the Center for Naval Analyses. He has a Ph.D. in history from Oxford University.
