Mark Isaacs: The Kabul Peace House

Posted on: Mon 6 Jun 2022

This book is the moving story of a man working for peace in a country torn apart over centuries by the wars fuelled by global superpowers fighting for control of resources, mostly oil. Our interview with author Mark Isaacs also explores his personal story, and how he has come to find his role as “a story-teller who connects people with issues all over the world to encourage and facilitate action”. His life changed direction when working in Nauru detention centre, which is how he ended up in Kabul in 2016. Service Voices’ Nicky Page learnt lots reading The Kabul Peace House and was moved and inspired to grab the chance to talk with Mark.

Reviewer Peter Graves states in part: “… This book is an outstanding tribute to a group of people in Afghanistan who refused to allow the “old ways” to stop them thinking about peace in Afghanistan …”
