9780895266750: A Journey through Afghanistan: A Memorial

Shortly before the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, David Chaffetz and a fellow American student immersed themselves in the customs, fears, and hopes of the Afghan people, setting out on horseback through the mountains and into a lonely, hermetic world of nomads and isolated villages. This vivid, honest, and often poignant account is now available again with a new foreword, written in the fall of 2001, by Chaffetz's travel companion, Willard Wood.

From the Inside Flap:

Shortly before the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, David Chaffetz and a fellow American student slipped from the protection of Western culture and immersed themselves in the customs, fears, and hopes of the Afghan people, setting out on horseback through the mountains and into a lonely, hermetic world of nomads and isolated villages. Chaffetz's vivid, honest, and often poignant account of their experience reveals a great deal about the people of Afghanistan-and Willard Wood, his traveling companion, contributes a foreword considering the experience of the Afghan people in the new light of autumn, 2001.

About the Author:

David Chaffetz, educated at Harvard University, has written for scholarly journals and lectured extensively on the Middle East.

Willard Wood is the English translator of several French texts, including Andre Raymond's Cairo and Jean-Christophe Ruffin's The Abyssinian.
