Farsi Nadhmi Facebook pageI was delighted to see one of my favorite interview subjects from Iraq, Professor Faris Nadhmi, post favorable comments about “WAR: The Afterparty” on his Facebook page.  I’ve since been contacted and ‘friended’ by a number of his colleagues, sharing thoughts about the book.  I have attached the interview with Farsi as a PDF on the Patreon crowdfunding site.

WAR: The Afterparty is a round-the-world tour through countries that have received American military forces in the pursuit of freedom, democracy, justice, and the free flow of commerce. In Southeast Asia, the Greater Middle East, the Balkans and Central America, author Brian Gruber records oral histories from political and religious leaders, writers, teachers, mothers and combatants who witnessed history from the other end of the gun barrel.

Do we accomplish in war what we say we will? After the party is over, what are war’s real effects?

This is the story of the Afterparty, in the words of those uniquely able to make an assessment.
