Through 76 duotone photographs interspersed with the verse of Afghan poet Bahodine Majrouh and a few short, diarylike pieces written by photographer Steele-Perkins, readers are given an impressionistic glimpse of harsh contemporary life in Afghanistan. A freelance photographer for the Magnum Agency, Steele-Perkins constructs a vision of the ravages of the internecine strife among the disparate Afghan peoples and the destruction of the infrastructure of their daily lives. Based on Steele-Perkins's four sojourns in Afghanistan, this book presents an implied criticism of the Taliban but wisely eschews a polemic stance for who are the angels in a civil war?
