About This Book

Afghan-American journalist Fariba Nawa delivers a revealing and deeply personal explorationof Afghanistan and the drug trade which rules the country, from corruptofficials to warlords and child brides and beyond. KhaledHosseini, author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns calls Opium Nation " an insightful andinformative look at the global challenge of Afghan drug trade. Fariba Nawa weaves her personalstory of reconnecting with her homeland after 9/11 with a very engagingnarrative that chronicles Afghanistan' s dangerous descent into opiumtrafficking… and most revealingly, how the drug trade has damaged the lives ofordinary Afghan people. " Readers of Gayle Lemmon Tzemach' s The Dressmaker of Khair Khana and Rory Stewart' s The Places Between will find Nawa' spersonal, piercing, journalistic tale to be an indispensable addition to thecultural criticism covering this dire global crisis.
