  • Argues that failure to understand history of Afghanistan's conflict, and its roots in movement toward modernity and centralized power, doom peace talks to failure

  • Author served in the Canadian Army and worked extensively as a security consultant in Afghanistan

  • Halton's first book, This Shall Be a House of Peace (Dundurn 2019), received a starred review from Booklist:
