Dari Practical Dictionary in Foreign Service Journal!

Carleton Bulkin's Dari-English/English-Dari Practical Dictionary has been reviewed in the November 2010 issure of the Foreign Service Journal!

"With President Obama's committment to redouble efforts in Afghanistan, language skills and expertise are in high demand. Dari, a relative of Persian and the main spoken language in Afghanistan, is especially important. This two-way Dari-English dictionary is one of the few up-to-date works of its type available.

While the dictionary is quite detailed and covers a lot of vocabulary, it remains portable and easy to read. The author also includes a guide to pronunciation, information about Afghanistan and even some Dari proverbs. At a time when the U.S. is trying to communicate with Afghans and win their hearts and minds, a practical resource such as this is a necessity."

All royalties from the sale of this book go to the works of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Afghanistan.
