Note on Ted Rall's New Book
Rall's "instant book" To
Afghanistan and Back about my misadventures covering the
war in Afghanistan hits stores next week. It contains a 50-page
graphic-novel format retelling of what went down plus 62 pages of
dispatches, cartoons and new photos filed from the front. Those
interested in an inside look at America's war on terror, you can
pre-order it at Amazon.com. Here's a brief description from Amazon's
"graphic travelogue" relates cartoonist/journalist Ted
Rall's harrowing experience covering the war in Afghanistan for
The Village Voice and report
for KFI Radio in Los Angeles. Of 45 reporters entering Afghanistan
in his convoy, three were killed within two weeks. The book's centerpiece
50-page graphic novel relating Rall's foray into the war zone during
Afghanistan and Back is a comprehensive look at the US bombing
campaign, its effects on ordinary people, the politics of the region
and how it relates to the United States after September 11th. To
Afghanistan and Back also includes 62 pages of Rall's scathingly
honest essays and news dispatches as well as editorial cartoons
and photos from Afghanistan never published elsewhere. The Washington
Post called Rall's Afghanistan reporting "excellent."
The Nation said: "Ted Rall has filed some of the best
war reporting from Afghanistan from an American journalist."
The book features an introduction by "Politically Incorrect"
host Bill Maher, with whom Rall famously sparred about the stolen
presidential election. To Afghanistan and Back is be a unique
must-have for anyone interested in Central Asia and Afghanistan
and America's war on terrorism.
