Reviews

"A pathbreaking synthesis of American and Russian perspectives on the illusions of empire and the impossibility of 'victory' in Afghanistan. As the contributors so eloquently emphasize, the only realistic and humane option can be spelled in three letters: O-U-T."--Mike Davis, author of Planet of Slums

"A fascinating and essential guide which puts the war in Afghanistan in the context of its recent history and dispels propaganda stereotypes about how the US, Britain and their allies became involved."--Patrick Cockburn, author of The Occupation: War and Resistance in Iraq
