Above the Din of War : Afghans Speak About Their Lives, Their Country, and Their Future and Why America
About this item
In Above the Din of War, Peter Eichstaedt focuses on the people of Afghanistan themselves, drawing out Afghans from all walks of life: a former warlord, a Taliban judge, courageous women parliamentarians, would-be suicide bombers, besieged merchants, frightened mullahs, and desperate archaeologists. The book explores a country that both vexes and fascinates the world and relates what its people have to say about living through years of continual unrest, violence, and negative international attention. From his time spent interviewing and living with the people of Afghanistan, Eichstaedt proposes strategies that could avoid leaving Afghanistan mired in chaos and war. This thought-provoking title from a journalist’s point of view adds a human element to this complex international situation.
