Worldview: A surge in schools
A best seller describes a compelling way to build ties with Afghanistan.
By Trudy Rubin
Readers often ask me if I've read Three Cups of Tea, the best seller by a self-styled "crazy American" named Greg Mortenson. The book describes how he came to build girls' schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Often the questioners are quite passionate. This is no surprise, since Three Cups of Tea has topped the charts for three years, Mortenson's lectures pack huge halls, and America's top military brass frequently cite the book. Nearly four million copies have been sold, in 41 countries, and of the 131 schools that Greg's Central Asia Institute has built, none has been shut down by the Taliban . . .
