The Wake of War: Encounters with the People of Iraq and Afghanistan Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the spring of 2003, acclaimed journalist Anne Nivat set off from Tajikistan on a six-month journey through the aftermath of the American invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq. Nivat felt compelled to meet and write about the lives of everyday people, whom she allows to speak in their own voices, in their own words—words of hope, sadness, anger, and, above all, the uncertainty that fills their everyday lives. Her new Preface for the paperback edition looks at the situation in Iraq today.

“The wars in which the United States has been engaged since 9/11 seem distant and almost unreal. This book provides us with vivid firsthand voices of ordinary people from these two devastated battlefields . . . A riveting and essential book for an understanding of the true import of these faraway wars.” —Rashid Khalidi, author of Resurrecting Empire

Anne Nivat is an award-winning journalist and author. She holds a doctorate in political science from Institut dEtudes Politiques de Paris, and she was a Fulbright Fellow at the Davis Center for Russian Studies at Harvard University. In 2001, she received the SAIS-Novartis International Journalism Award from Johns Hopkins University. Her first book, Chienne de Guerre: A Woman Reporter Behind the Lines of the War in Chechnya, won the Albert Londres Prize in 2000. Also the author of The View from the Vysotka, Nivat lives in France and travels extensively.
