Anand Gopal on The Longest War
In No Good Men Among the Living, acclaimed journalist Anand Gopal traces in vivid detail the lives of three Afghans caught in America's war on terror. With its intimate accounts of life in war-torn Afghanistan, Gopal's thoroughly original reporting lays bare the workings of America's longest war and the truth behind its prolonged agony. A heartbreaking story of mistakes and misdeeds, No Good Men Among the Living challenges our usual perceptions of the Afghan conflict, its victims, and its supposed winners. "Gopal's book is essential reading for anyone concerned about how America got Afghanistan so wrong," wrote The New York Times Book Review. "It is a devastating, well-honed prosecution detailing how our government bungled the initial salvo in the so-called war on terror, ignored attempts by top Taliban leaders to surrender, trusted the wrong people and backed a feckless and corrupt Afghan regime. It is ultimately the most compelling account  of how Afghans themselves see the war."

Gopal has served as an Afghanistan correspondent for The Wall Street Journal and The Christian Science Monitor, and has reported on the Middle East and South Asia for Harper's, The Nation, The New Republic, Foreign Policy, and other publications. No Good Men Among the Living was longlisted for the National Book Award this year.

This event is co-presented with Guernica: A Magazine of Art & Politics.
