Image Source: Central Queens Y
America’s longest war is now 12 years old, yet many Americans don’t understand Afghanistan and the background of the fighting there. Tamim Ansary will speak about the long struggle driving the conflict between the Taliban and other forces as part of an ongoing lecture series at the Central Queens Y. A prolific author who writes for the San Francisco Chronicle, the Los Angeles Times and Salon, Ansary was born and raised in Afghanistan, but has lived in the U.S. since 1964. In his new book, Game Without Rules, Ansary draws on his heritage and Muslim roots to explain Afghan history from the inside.
