A nice blurb about my book from the Grand Rapids Institute for Information Democracy (GRIID):

The Case for Withdrawal from Afghanistan, edited by Nick Turse – This is an important collection of essays by 22 different contributors on not only the possibility of a US/NATO withdrawal from Afghanistan, but the necessity of such a move. There are essays that provide historical context and some that provide important analysis about the real reasons for the 9-year US occupation of Afghanistan. However, the most important and most critical essays are from Afghans themselves, particularly Malalai Joya whose essay is entitled, “No Nation Can Liberate Another.” This book is a timely contribution that could be a useful resource for a growing anti-war movement in the US.
