Reviews

"Certainly the finest historical narrative so far on the origins of al Qaeda in the post-Soviet rubble of Afghanistan . . . Ghost Wars provides fresh details and helps explain the motivations behind many crucial decisions."--The New York Times Book Review

"The CIA itself would be hard put to beat his grasp of global events ... Deeply satisfying."--The New York Review of Books "A well written, authoritative, high-altitude drama with few heroes, many villains, bags of cash, and a tragic ending--one that may not have been inevitable."--The Washington Post
