Is war simply a part of the human condition? Or do a few people benefit from it, especially now that technology is overcoming the traditional scarcity of resources faced by humans, and redefining their relationship to the Earth and nature? As the war in Afghanistan after 9/11 worsens, two men, one an American, one an Afghan, begin to ask why. What fuels a war? And makes it difficult, politically, for a country to get out? They go to Afghanistan to look for answers. The book features stunning photography which shows the Afghan people up close, in daily life. This is ultimately a story of hope. Of a future for humanity without war.
