Description
Christopher Alexander, Canadian's former ambassador to Afghanistan, offers an inside look at Afghanistan recent history, and delivers a blueprint for transforming the troubled country into a viable nation. Alexander draws on expertise gained over five years on the ground in Afghanistan, chronicling the country's initial successes following the Afghan War, the setbacks it incurred thanks to a resurgent Taliban, and the tenuous stability that multilateral diplomacy has brought the war-torn yet rebuilding nation. Readers of Ahmed Rashid's Descent into Chaos and Alex Berenson's Lost in Kandahar will find no more penetrating insight into Afghanistan's past, present, and future than Christopher Alexander's probing, expert dissection of a nation at war with itself: The Long Way Back.
