Description:
 Journalist Vanessa Gezari presents the gripping story of the American civilians behind the Human Terrain System, an audacious military social experiment driven by the notion that you can't win a war if you don't understand the enemy's culture. In this tale of moral suspense, Gezari follows the idealistic team from the hope that brought them to Afghanistan through the events of the fateful day when one is gravely wounded, an Afghan is dead, and a proponent of cross-cultural understanding is charged with his murder.
