Book Description

 Throughout history war has affected civilizations in many ways. In contemporary times, Afghanistan, the Kashmir Valley, parts of middle East and Africa continue to be embroiled in conflict. It makes you ask the question: is there an ‘ordinary’ life beyond violence in these conflict zones? Through the real-life stories of people, the book attempts to uncover the human aspect of war, and how individuals and communities make sense of and cope with the pain and uncertainty. In this book, narratives of people who have either lived or are living in conflict zones are presented in an anecdotal manner, highlighting the extraordinary resilience humankind possesses and its ability to survive amidst despair and destruction. Documenting the authors first-hand experience of confronting the realities of conflict-affected and ‘post-conflict’ regions of the Middle East, South Asia and West Africa (Afghanistan, afghanistan–pakistan border, Lebanon, lebanon–syria border, Sierra Leone, indo-pakistan border, Kashmir, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha and Rohingya refugees along bangladesh–myanmar border), the book is a raw and bleeding portrayal of hope and strength. Piece of war will be a heartfelt and introspective read for all readers, and an analytical read especially for psychologists, anthropologists and journalists.
