Publisher's Summary

Five foreigners, including an American, were pardoned by the Somali government recently after being arrested in May for bringing millions of dollars into the country to pay a ransom to Somali pirates. The UN estimates more than $110 million has been paid just in the past twelve months. Jay Bahadur spent a year in Somalia infiltrating the remote pirate havens of the war-ravaged country. His book, The Pirates of Somalia, is a first ever, close-up look into the lives of these men ¬— how they live, how they spend the ransom money, how they treat the hostages, and the forces that created piracy in Somalia.

Then, “Only after covering it for years did I understand that the war on terror never really existed.” So says journalist Megan Stack in the prologue to Every Man in This Village Is a Liar: An Education in War. In her book, Stack chronicles her experience covering Afghanistan, Iraq, and Lebanon for the Los Angeles Times. [Broadcast Date: July 25, 2011]
