The Punishment Of Virtue
EBOOK EDITION WITH A NEW PREFACE
What happens when the War on Terror media circus packs up and leaves town? Sarah Chayes spent six years in Afghanistan in order to find out. Living in the old capital, Kandahar, dressing like a man and befriending the heroic Chief of Police, Akrem, she gained unparalleled access to tribal leaders, cunning warlords, jihadist insurgents and opium traders, as well as politicians, security chiefs and Pakistani Intelligence agents – all contending for power in this uniquely strategic place at a pivotal moment in its history. Hers is an urgent book, and a mesmerizingly readable story.
