Description:
The author is a well-respected Afghan historian who has published several volumes detailing Afghan history and who spent five years in a Kabul prison for his outspoken opposition to the Soviet occupation. Readers gain a deeper understanding of the complex issues that led to this conflict from someone who has for years lived and studied Afghan society, culture, and politics. By the time the Soviets withdrew, every ninth Afghan had died, every seventh has been disabled, every third had fled abroad. From Kakar the true horror of this unfortunate conflict is revealed.
