Book Description
The courageous and extraordinary story of one man`s journey from the heart of the Islamic world to the halls of Harvard via the battlefields of Afghanistan.Masood Farivar was ten years old when his childhood in a then peaceful and prosperous Afghanistan was shattered by the Soviet invasion of 1979. Fleeing across the border to Pakistan Masood entered a madrassa for refugees, but soon returned to his home to join the anti-Soviet jihad.Two years later, having fought alongside the Afghan mujahideen and Arab and Pakistani volunteers, Farivar left his country to study at Harvard, and then worked as a journalist in New York. But finally, after a decade in the United States, he felt he had to go back to Afghanistan. Having seen terrorism turn America into a hotbed of anti-Muslim racism, he now returned to a country that had been devastated by war and which had become a safe haven for international terrorists.In this remarkable memoir, Masood paints a vibrant portrait of his family and his nation`s history, reveals the world of militant Islam by taking us deep inside the madrassas, vividly recounts his experiences on the battlefield at Tora Bora, and conveys the culture shock of a Muslim living in the West today.`This is an extraordinary tale of courage and transformation.`LESLIE COCKBURN`In these troubled times this is a book that is brave, honest, humane and full of love.
