The extraordinary story of the covert operation that changed the history of our times In the last decade, two events have transformed the world: the collapse of the Soviet Union and the rise of militant Islam. There is one man that links them, and his name is Charlie Wilson. In the early 1980s, Wilson - a Texan congressman on the House Appropriations Committee - learned of a ragged band of Afghan 'freedom fighters' whose aim was to resist their Soviet invaders. Wilson became passionate about their cause and managed to procure hundreds of millions of dollars to support them. This is the first book to uncover Wilson's covert deals with the men who would become known as the mujahideen. George Crile spent nearly a decade researching and writing this original account of the biggest, most expensive secret war in history: the arming of the Afghan resistance to Soviet occupation. Moving from the secret chambers in CIA headquarters to stand-offs in the Khyber Pass, Charlie Wilson's War is one of the most thorough and vivid descriptions of CIA operations ever written. It is the missing chapter in the geopolitics of our time.

Everything's changing for Sarah Beth Willis. After Robin's tragic accident, everyone seems different somehow. Days on the farm aren't the same, and the simple fun of riding a bike or playing outside can be scary. And there's talk in town about the new sixth-grade teacher at Shady Creek. Word is spreading quickly--Mrs. Smyre is like no other teacher anyone has ever seen around these parts. She's the first African American teacher. It's 1969, and while black folks and white folks are cordial, having a black teacher at an all-white school is a strange new happening. For Sarah Beth, there are so many unanswered questions. What is all this talk about Freedom Riders and school integration? Why can't she and Ruby become best friends? And who says school isn't for anybody who wants to learn--or teach? In a world filled with uncertainty, one very special teacher shows her young students and the adults in their lives that change invites unexpected possibilities.
