Editorial Reviews

“This is a book to inform the world of the internal dynamics of a nascent nation state in a remote part of the world that is strategically important to superpowers. This is the first insider’s view of Afghanistan by an indigenous journalist-scholar who looks at the top from the bottom. There is a definite need for a book of this kind.”--Yasumasa Kuroda, Professor Emeritus, University of Hawai’i"Summing up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate, graduate, and research collections."--CHOICE: N. Entessar, University of South Alabama
