Understanding US Policy in Afghanistan

In the years following 9/11, U.S. policy in Afghanistan received little scrutiny, either from the media or the public. Despite official claims of democracy and women’s freedom, Afghanistan has yet to emerge from the ashes of decades-long war. Through in-depth research and detailed historical context, Sonali Kolhatkar and James Ingalls report on the injustice of U.S. policies in Afghanistan historically and in the post-9/11 era.

Published by Seven Stories Press in 2006, Bleeding Afghanistan: Washington, Warlords, and the Propaganda of Silence is the first book by Sonali Kolhatkar.
