SORT BY Relevancy
Lost to many whose news sources in the USA consists of the major newspapers and the standard networks, for most of the last dozen+ years, the conflict in Afghanistan has not been a USA-Centric battle; it has been a NATO run operation.
When the Commander of the International Security Assistance Force has been an American 4-star, the visuals can be misleading.
For most of the last decade, American forces were dominate in only one region of Afghanistan, the east. Other NATO nations from Italy/Spain in the west, Germany in the North, and Commonwealth nations and the Dutch in the south.
More important than the actual numbers involved, it was the Rules of Engagement, caveats, and the fickle nature of national politics that drove what effects those forces had on the ground.
The good, the bad, and the ugly of modern coalition warfare was all in view for all in Afghanistan, but outside small circles, has yet to be fully discussed.
Our guest for the full hour will be Stephen Saideman.
Stephen holds the Paterson Chair in International Affairs at Carleton University’s Norman Paterson School of International Affairs. He has written The Ties That Divide: Ethnic Politics, Foreign Policy and International Conflict and For Kin or Country: Xenophobia, Nationalism and War (with R. William Ayres) and NATO in Afghanistan: Fighting Together, Fighting Alone (with David Auerswald), and other work on nationalism, ethnic conflict, civil war, and civil-military relations. Prof. Saideman spent 2001-02 on the U.S. Joint Staff working in the Strategic Planning and Policy Directorate as part of a Council on Foreign Relations International Affairs Fellowship. He writes online at OpenCanada.org, Political Violence at a Glance, Duck of Minerva and his own site (saideman.blogspot.com). He also tweets too much at @smsaideman.
NATO SUMMIT...Notable Authors Together Optimize!
Sooo, you've written a book, YEAH, you're 10% finished/done, NOT SO...NOW 90% of your time and effort in is the PR/Marketing of YOUR BOOK. Now it begins, the search for an agent (unless you've self-published) and the taunting task of writing a QUERY LETTER.
This advice from an agent. "I never take on a first novel unless it is complete." What editor would be willing to buy partial fiction manuscripts. Finished manuscripts involve less risk.
Ze QUERY LETTER...Authors remember that books ARE jugded by their COVERS.
No quotes...no problem...etc.
One unique thing...etc.
Octogenarians on the move...etc.
Readers of the Week...etc
