"From Africa to Afghanistan" details Greg Mills' four months as
special adviser to the Commander of the Ninth International
Security Assistance Force (ISAF IX) in Afghanistan to help
establish and run a civilian think-tank, the Prism Group, within
the headquarters in Kabul. It highlights the difficulty of
rebuilding a failed state through external assistance, a lesson
which translates across borders and continents to Africa and
elsewhere. Mills, the "adventurer-academic" and "soldier-analyst,"
has managed to write a book that is entertaining, informative and
thought-provoking all at the same time.
"Greg Mills" heads the Johannesburg-based Brenthurst Foundation.
An associate research fellow of the Royal United Services Institute
(RUSI) for Defence and Security Studies, he previously (1996-2005)
directed the South African Institute of International Affairs. He
is the author of more than thirty books, including "Security
Intersection" and the award-winning "Wired Model," and has twice
been nominated for the Alan Paton award.
