The explosive first-hand account of America's secret history in Afghanistan
With the publication of "Ghost Wars," Steve Coll became not only a Pulitzer Prize winner, but also the expert on the rise of the Taliban, the emergence of Bin Laden, and the secret efforts by CIA officers and their agents to capture or kill Bin Laden in Afghanistan after 1998.

Industry 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
