Afghanistan Under Soviet Domination, 1964-91
This book offers a guide to the modern history of Afghanistan. This remote land, made up of many tribes and ethnic peoples, on the borders of Central Asia became a focus of Superpower rivalry and international intrigue after the Soviet invasion in 1979. This book shows how Afghanistan's traditional society has been profoundly shaken up in a cruelly destructive war, causing the world's biggest refugee problem and a chronic instability which threatens the wider region. Books by this author include "The Sherley Legend", "Conflict Studies on Pakistan" and "Muslim Fundamentalism and Kurdistan".
