Killing the Cranes Now Available in Paperback

Few reporters have covered Afghanistan as intrepidly and humanely as Edward Girardet. In his latest book, Killing the Cranes, Girardet delivers a story of that nation’s resistance fighters, foreign invaders, mercenaries, spies, aid workers, Islamic extremists, and others who have defined Afghanistan’s last thirty years of war, chaos, and strife.

Released last year in hardcover, Killing the Cranes was nominated for the Helen Bernstein award for outstanding journalism, was praised by the New York Review of Books, and was a finalist for ForeWord Reviews’ Book of the Year award in History.

Since the release of Killing the Cranes, the United States made concrete plans to end its combat mission in Afghanistan. This is a step in the right direction toward an autonomous nation that can fend for itself and keep corruption and terrorist organizations at bay — but what will be the lasting effects of our occupation?

One could look for clues in Girardet’s book, now available in paperback for the first time. Killing the Cranes traces the past thirty years of Afghan history, the forces that have shaped it, and some of the important players that have influenced it.

The paperback edition includes a new epilogue by Girardet. To celebrate its arrival we’re putting it on sale for 25% off until September 18.

In this video from PBS NewsHour, Girardet shares his perspective on the current state of affairs in the long-misunderstood middle eastern nation.
