For readers of War by Sebastian Junger, We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families by Philip Gourevitch, and The Forever War by Dexter Filkins, The Dogs Are Eating Them Now is a raw, uncensored account of the war in Afghanistan from a brilliant young reporter who for several years was the only Western journalist brave enough to live full-time in the dangerous southern region.
     The Dogs Are Eating Them Now is a highly personal narrative of Canada's war in Afghanistan and how it went dangerously wrong. Written by a respected and fearless former foreign correspondent who has won multiple awards for his journalism (including an Emmy for the video series "Talking with the Taliban"), this is a gripping account of modern warfare that takes you into back alleys, cockpits, and prisons--telling stories that would have endangered his life had he published this book while still working as a journalist.
     From the corruption of law enforcement agents and the tribal nature of the local power structure to the economics of the drug trade and the frequent blunders of foreign troops, this is the no-holds-barred story from a leading expert on the insurgency. Smith draws on his unmatched compassion and a rare ability to cut through the noise and see the broader truths to give us a bold and candid look at the Taliban's continued influence--and at the mistakes, catastrophes and ultimate failure of the West's best intentions

GRAEME SMITH is a Senior Analyst for the International Crisis Group, the world's leading independent, non-partisan source of analysis and advice to governments and intergovernmental bodies like the United Nations, European Union and World Bank on the prevention and resolution of deadly conflict. He covered the Afghan war for The Globe and Mail from 2005 to 2009. He is the winner of an Emmy Award, the Amnesty International Award, three National Newspaper Awards, and the Michener Award for public service. He lectures widely and served as an Adjunct Scholar at the US Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. Based in Kabul, he travels frequently to Washington and Brussels.

Praise for The Dogs Are Eating Them Now:

• "It is the most hard-won and heartfelt piece of journalism that exists on Canada's longest war." The Gazette
• "A wise, enthralling, detailed, realistic account of his time in Afghanistan." The Globe and Mail
