Conversations at the Center: A Conversation with Anand Gopal

Almost 15 years after the beginning of the United States’ War on Terror, many would describe the American global counterinsurgency effort as a bloody quagmire. To try and find peace for people to whom the US government remains committed requires changing strategies based on what has and has not worked. For acclaimed journalist and writer Anand Gopal, those solutions might lie in the most confusing and troublesome anti-terror effort to date: the War in Afghanistan.

In his recent book, 'No Good Men Among the Living', Gopal details the stories of three Afghans caught in the crossfire of US military intervention. By highlighting American triumphs and pitfalls in the early stages of the war, the book reveals the human toll exacted upon the Afghan population as well as the role the US itself played in the resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan. In this lecture, Gopal will discuss the time he spent in Afghanistan as well as the current work he is doing more generally on the Middle East, especially the Syrian conflict.

Gopal served as the Afghanistan correspondent for both The Wall Street Journal and The Christian Science Monitor.

He contributes frequently to Harper’s and Foreign Policy, and also runs a blog on his website (http://anandgopal.com/).
