Interview with Cambridge University Press on “Humanitarian Invasion: Global Development in Cold War Afghanistan”

Thanks to the efforts of the good people at Cambridge University Press, a short video of yours truly discussing my recent book, Humanitarian Invasion: Global Development in Cold War Afghanistan, can be viewed online here. It runs to about 8 minutes, and it it I try to cover a few basic questions about why I wrote the book, and what the approach in the monograph—a ground-up view of Afghanistan as a real place rather than as something schemed over in the foreign ministries of Moscow and Washington—brings to the table.

More in-depth podcasts and media pieces on the book are forthcoming, but thanks goes to a terrific staff at CUP in New York. I hope to have the chance to work again with them in the future.
