Journalist Edward Girardet's Essential Field Guide to Afghanistan was originally intended as a guide book for journalists, aid workers and soldiers. But since 2001, one of the guide's largest customers has been the U.S. government. Originally published in the 1990s, Girardet and a team of writers have updated the guide to 2004. Hear NPR's Cheryl Corley and Girardet.
