Description

In 1998 Ron Poulton traveled to Tajikistan as a legal adviser to the UN Mission. It was his job to ensure the men on trial for killing members of a UN observer force--Team Garm--received a fair trial. Poulton vividly captures life in Dushanbe, the Tajik capital, a city full of fear and nightly curfews, where political murders are common and suspicion haunts the streets.
