Masood Farivar's book tells of his upbringing in Afghanistan, refugee life in Pakistan, service in the mujahideen, education in the U.S., and ultimate return to Afghanistan. It's main value is serving as a window into another culture.

One particularly interesting point was his observation that Afghans saw their struggle vs. the Russians as a jihad (holy war) fought to liberate their country. Arabs, on the other hand, were seen by Afghans as war tourists who had bought their way into the country, saw the Afghans as lesser Muslims, and were seeking heavenly rewards (martyrdom). Some would even have themselves tied to trees in bombarded areas in hopes of being killed.
