Kurzbeschreibung

A comical, disturbing and engaging look into the Pashtun-Afghan culture, written by a female veteran of the U.S. Army.

Tasked with leading a team in support of U.S. Army Counterintelligence, Jennifer Dunham spent fourteen months in Eastern Afghanistan. Charged with conducting in-depth interviews of local men applying for jobs on a U.S. military base, she gained a unique insight into their culture, perceptions and ways of thinking. Through the course of interviewing over 500 Pashtun-Afghan men, Jennifer witnessed the heartbreak of war, the still-apparent control of the Taliban and effects of decades-long oppression on the local population. "There is no goat" provides revelations about the Pashtun-Afghan culture like no other book. The personal stories present the reader with an understanding of the day-to-day challenges and dangers many Afghans face. The book explores the Afghans’ views on crucial topics including politics, corruption, the role of Afghan women and Osama bin Laden. The first-hand accounts contained within the pages of "there is no goat" present exclusive visions into the minds of Afghan men.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A fun read 4. Dezember 2013
Von Benjamin Africa III - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
At first I was hoping some additional insight to the Afghan people, things that would be of a anthropological nature. I was pleased to find some of these bits of information. But, what was the enjoyable part was how the author was able to relate the little things that showed some lighter sides of Afghan life. This book is a nice break from the heavier reading on the area.

5.0 von 5 Sternen insightful, a must read 13. August 2013
Von Jenny B - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Through a well written and easy to read first person text, approved for publishing by the U.S. Office of Security Review, Jennifer conveys insight into aspects of the Afghan culture. Much was new to me, like the concept that land is not bought and sold but inherited (or stolen)and land ownership is undocumented. I don't think her purpose was to provide any psychology behind the customs, but I often found enough examples and insights to form some guesses as to the psychology behind the development and continuation of some of the customs. I do have the benefit of having lived overseas and experiencing a different culture (Japanese). I have also visited many countries in Europe and Africa, paying particular attention to peoples and cultures. So, even though much of this area of the world was new to me, it did not surprise me. Jennifer gives enough background to help one understand where the customs come from and why some are so ingrained throughout the fabric of the culture.
We can not understand ourselves if we don't understand others. We can not understand others without exposure to others.
Thank You, Jennifer, for sharing your experiences, knowledge and insights.

5.0 von 5 Sternen what do you mean there's no goat? 7. Juni 2013
Von MARK E SCOTT - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The book does a great job of bringing out the day to day job of working to keep people safe in a dangerous place. Everybody has a story, even the poor local national looking for a job. I enjoyed the personal stories of the Afghans trying to make the best of a bad situation, and the look into Afghan culture. A good read for someone looking to know how the normal Afghan on the street thinks.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Depressing, funny, and down-to-earth all rolled together 22. November 2014
Von Russ A. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This fascinating first-person account by a counter-intelligent agent stationed in Afghanistan is at times mind-boggling, eye-opening, and gut-splitting funny. The author describes her many interviews of Afghan men in clear, unadorned tell-it-like-it-is prose. It reads more like a government CI report (of which I’ve read many) than a work of literature, but it works. She was stationed near the Pakistani border in a base surrounded by small rural Pashtun villages. The level of ignorance, deceit, corruption, poverty, and stupidity she describes is almost hard to believe, yet it all rings dismayingly true. Politically correct it’s not, and the one or two bad reviews are clearly coming from the self-appointed PC police. There are Afghan men who don’t know the names of their children and sometimes not even how many they have. Another man thought his father was two years older than he was. One job applicant described how his brother was killed by an IED while that same brother was in the next room interviewing for the same position. If you ever plan to go there, read this first. The author clearly has a red, white, and blue soldier’s political leaning, but you wouldn’t want anything else in a military CI agent, now would you? Still, the picture she paints makes you wonder why we ever went there and certainly proves, as if any proof was needed, what an utter failure the idea of nation building is in this tribal land where national borders are just lines on a map.

4.0 von 5 Sternen This one is interesting but.... 25. August 2014
Von Mary A. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I came away frustrated. Not because of the author's writing, but because of what I read. The book was somewhat redundant in places but probably because in trying to explain the Afghan, their thought processes and actions, were so similar. The read was exactly what I expected and it made me angry to actually see how our nation has wasted trillions rebuilding the country,supplying jobs to them and their own government has done nothing. There is just too much coruption, change will never take place. I also found the "training" of their troops frightening. They feel no alliance to their country and believe the Americans are there just to give money. The American soldier is in constant danger serving with them on tactical missions because one can ever be sure if they are terrorist cooperatives.I found the "interview" process for Afghanis down right laughable. If they weren't perceived to be lying, the were given a job on the military compound. In reading the book, I feel more strongly than ever that our government continues to put our men and women of the military at risk and continues to pour money into a country that will never change. If you are not aware of what's happening in the war on terror, read the book. You'll get your eyes opened.
