AFGHANISTAN: BETWEEN HOPE AND FEAR -- PAULA BRONSTEIN. University of Texas Press, Austin, 2016. Louann Atkins Temple Women & Culture, 42. 228 pp. with 112 col. ills. 27 x 29 cm. LC 2015-39025 ISBN 9781477309391 In English.
Publisher's description: The Afghan people are standing at a crucial crossroads in history. Can their fragile democratic institutions survive the draw down of US military support? Will Afghan women and girls be stripped of their modest gains in freedom and opportunity as the West loses interest in their plight? While the media have largely moved on from these stories, Paula Bronstein remains passionately committed to bearing witness to the lives of the Afghan people. In this powerful photo essay, she goes beyond war coverage to reveal the full complexity of daily life in what may be the world's most reported on yet least known country. Afghanistan: Between Hope and Fear presents a photographic portrait of this war-torn country's people across more than a decade. With empathy born of the challenges of being an American female photojournalist working in a conservative Islamic country, Bronstein gives voice to those Afghans, particularly women and children, rendered silent during the violent Taliban regime.
