The Places In Between by Rory Stewart
The Places In Between

lexgm, February 13, 2009

Stewart's book is at once informative and laden with information. It provides us with a unique way of understanding the modern conflicts of Afghanistan: through both the history of the country and through observations of its current state. Stewart's perspective is unique as he enters Afghanistan as but an uninvolved bystander with the intention of simply walking. However, as he progresses through the country, his sentiment changes and we get a more personal view of its people.
This book is essential step in understanding our world today.
