Praise for
'The Carpet Wars'

other two classics, Eric Newby’s A Short Walk in the
Hindu Kush, and V.S. Naipaul’s Among the Believers.'—
Pat Baskett, New Zealand Herald

'A richly investigated chronicle' — Tracy Lee Simmons,

year…in dry good humour, Kremmer takes us cross-
legged on a panoramic ride, from the tragic present to a
complex past.' — Jefferson Penberthy, The Bulletin

'If you read no other non-fiction book post-September 11,
don’t miss this one....a source of vivid, unexpected
pleasure—sharp as the air in the Afghan mountains. —
Morag Fraser, The Age

Bellaigue, Times Literary Supplement
