   schema:reviewBody ""At a time when the situation in Afghanistan is increasingly overshadowed by the global 'War on Terror' in the Western media, this book offers an insight into the lives of the Afghans themselves, the cinema owners and the women teachers in the cities, the nomads in the countryside, as well as returning exiles. The author speaks to a former prisoner of the American military at Bagram, where conditions are said to be worse than Guantanamo Bay, and to a young man who has been fighting in the ongoing war against the resurgent Taleban forces in the south. In this timely account of his journey through Afghanistan, Roger Willemsen reminds us that Afghanistan and its people are far more complex and diverse than many Western stereotypes suggest, and how after years of horrendous suffering and deprivation, they are still struggling to maintain themselves, their proud history and rich culture."--BOOK JACKET." ;
