This fascinating and clearly written book mines a rich and unique array of data, which was collected in rural areas of Afghanistan by an expert team of researchers, to analyze countrywide trends in the relationship between human security and livelihoods. The team's research and recommendations are published here for the first time.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A detailed study of the terrible insecurity in which Afghans live. . . . Highly recommended. * CHOICE *
A welcome contribution on what is needed between the international community and the Afghan population: renewed trust. The authors help us better understand how enhancing the human security and livelihoods of Afghans sets the framework for reconstructing peace, dignity, and hope. -- Ariane Brunet, Coalition for Women's Human Rights in Conflict Situations
This excellent book develops a comprehensive and in-depth analysis of the situation of the Afghan people as they face current and emerging threats to their security. The authors bring both an intimate understanding of the complex social structures relevant in Afghanistan and empirical evidence of the causes and consequences of human insecurity in the country. -- Annalies Borrel, United Nations Children's Fund
An important and captivating book that contains one of the first analyses of local perceptions of human security in the immediate aftermath of the demise of the Taliban regime. It demonstrates that evidence-based research can play a crucial part in informing policy development. Donors, aid agencies, and scholars should pay more attention to research that puts the 'view from below' at its core. -- Antonio Donini, Feinstein International Center, former director of UN humanitarian coordination in Afghanistan
