    Author’s Talk with Anand Gopal – “No Good Men Among the Living”

    America, the Taliban, and the War through Afghan Eyes 

    Cooper-UnionAcclaimed journalist Anand Gopal discusses his new book, NO GOOD MEN AMONG THE LIVING, a heartbreaking story of mistakes and misdeeds that challenges our usual perceptions of the Afghan conflict, its victims, and its supposed winners.  Gopal traces in vivid detail the lives of three Afghans caught in America’s war on terror. He follows a Taliban commander, who rises from scrawny teenager to leading insurgent; a US-backed warlord, who uses the American military to gain personal wealth and power; and a village housewife trapped between the two sides, who discovers the devastating cost of neutrality. 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.
