Summary
  • Part of the Pentagon's most daring and controversial attempt since Vietnam to bring social science to the Afghanistan battlefield, three tough-minded American civilians find their humanity tested and their lives forever changed by this little-known mission
  • On the day Barack Obama was elected president in November 2008, a small group of American civilians took their optimism and experience to Afghanistan, then considered America's "good war." They were part of the Pentagon's controversial attempt to bring social science to the battlefield, a program called the Human Terrain System, driven by the notion that you can't win a war if you don't understand the enemy and his culture. Gezari follows this historic, little-known mission
