Description
 
Since 9/11, Afghanistan has dominated the news, as it did for a decade during the Soviet occupation (1979-89), & long before, when in the 19th & early 20th century, its mountain ranges formed the backdrop to the Great Game. Here, Rasanayagam has rev. & updated his magisterial work, which is the first major history of modern Afghanistan. He traces the country’s development from the succession of Abdul Rahman Khan, the ‘Iron Amir’ in 1880, through to the demise of the Taliban under U.S. bombing over the winter of 2001 & the interim regime that was subsequently established in Kabul by Hamid Karzai. “A fully detailed account of Afghanistan’s fall into communism, & the chaos & eventual dictatorship that resulted from it.” Maps.
