9780007256945: The Retreat. How The West Ignored Pakistan And Lost Afghanistan
Críticas:

Praise for 'House of Stone': 'Lamb is a careful observer, and her anguished refrain is the terrible schizophrenia of people who fiercely love their land but do nothing to save it ! the strength is in the storytelling ! her book deserves to be read.' Daily Telegraph 'A remarkable blend of outrage, compassion and hope, Christina Lamb's book is an alternately horrifying and uplifting insight into the Taliban regime.' Justin Marozzi, Evening Standard

Reseña del editor:

The definitive book on Afghanistan, 'Not a Shot Fired' by award-winning journalist, Christina Lamb, is the gripping account of how the West's politicians forgot about this troubled region, the root of the War on Terror, when pursuing their goals in Iraq. The failure of the West in Afghanistan is unquestionably devastating and despite efforts to eliminate the Taliban from the country, their presence has continued to grow. Insurgent attacks have also increased, and the region still struggles against poverty, an unstable infrastructure and a huge number of land mines. Initially billed as the West's success story by both Bush and Blair, and a reconstruction mission that would go ahead, according to then Home Secretary John Reid, "without a shot being fired", Afghanistan remains, largely, a lawless, violent land. Most of the promises made to its people in 2001 have not been fulfilled. Award-winning journalist Christina Lamb understands Afghanistan like nobody else. Reporting on the region since the age of 21, she has fought with the mujahadeen dressed as an Afghan boy, experienced a near-fatal ambush and head-on encounter with Taliban forces and successfully established links with American, British, Afghan government, Taliban and tribal fighters. Her unparalleled access to troops and civilians on the ground, as well as to top military officials has ensured that 'Not a Shot Fired' is the definitive book on the region, exposing the realities of Afghanistan unlike anyone before. In the same vein as Robert Fisk's 'The Great War of Civilisation: The Conquest of the Middle East' and Bob Woodwards 'Plan of Attack', 'Not a Shot Fired' is compelling, moving and impossible to put down.

Descripción HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 197 x 130 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. From the award-winning co-author of I Am Malala , this book asks just how the might of NATO, with 48 countries and 140,000 troops on the ground, failed to defeat a group of religious students and farmers? How did it go so wrong? Farewell Kabul tells how the West turned success into defeat in the longest war fought by the United States in its history and by Britain since the Hundred Years War. It is the story of well-intentioned men and women going into a place they did not understand at all. And how, what had once been the right thing to do had become a conflict that everyone wanted to exit. It has been a fiasco which has left Afghanistan still one of the poorest and most dangerous nations on earth. The leading journalist on the region with unparalleled access to all key decision makers, Christina Lamb is the best-selling author of The Africa House and I Am Malala , co-authored with Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai. This revelatory and personal account is her final analysis of the realities of Afghanistan, told unlike anyone before. Nº de ref. de la librería LIB9780007256945
