The truth that Nivat constructs in The Wake of War is . . . compelling. Nivat is perhaps best known for her reporting on Chechnya, where she disguised herself as a Chechen woman to evade a ban on journalists. Her new work is no less courageous.–Tom Montgomery-Fate, Boston Globe

“The wars in which the United States has been engaged since 9/11 seem distant and almost unreal. This book provides us with vivid firsthand voices of ordinary people from these two devastated battlefields . . . A riveting and essential book for an understanding of the true import of these faraway wars.” –Rashid Khalidi, author of Resurrecting Empire
