Kabul In Winter – Life Without Peace in Afghanistan

By: Ann Jones (452/35680)
Publisher: Picador ISBN: 978-0-312-42659-0

Soon after American bombs stopped falling on Kabul, award-winning journalist and women’s rights activist Ann Jones set out for the shattered city. There she spent the next four winters working in humanitarian aid. This is her trenchant report. Jones goes into the streets, the prisons, and the schools to meet everyday men and women and recount their often harrowing stories. Through their voices she reveals the complexity of Afghanistan’s past and the troubling contradictions of today: between the new Afghan “democracy” and the still-entrenched warlords, between American promises and performance, between what’s boasted of and what is. At once angry, profound, and starkly beautiful, Kabul in Winter brings alive the people and day-to-day life of a place whose future depends upon our own.
