This timely and authoritative book analyzes U.S. and international efforts in Afghanistan and offers detailed policy recommendations for dealing with the precarious situation leading up to the 2014 transition to Afghan control, and beyond. After more than a decade of great effort and sacrifice, the Taliban still has not been defeated and most Afghans believe that a civil war is coming. Vanda Felbab-Brown argues that the allied effort has put far too little emphasis on good governance and too much on short-term military goals. Brown combines thorough research and analysis with vivid personal accounts of her time spent in the war-torn nation--vignettes that illustrate the Afghan people's aspirations and underline her main argument about the critical role of good governance in bringing peace and stability to Afghanistan.
