After completing her assignment in Afghanistan for NPR in 2002, Sarah Chayes stayed to take a position running a nongovernmental aid organization, Afghans for Civil Society, founded by the family of the Afghan president Hamid Karzai.

In this firsthand account, she reveals the appallingly misguided U.S. policies in Afghanistan in the wake of the defeat of the Taliban, which have severely undermined the effort to build democracy, have allowed corrupt tribal warlords back into positions of power and the Taliban to re-infiltrate the country.

This is an eye-opening chronicle that highlights the often infuriating realities of a vital front on the war on terror, exposing deeper, fundamental problems with current U.S. strategy.
