Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 200 x 136 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A fascinating chronicle of a nation s turbulent history. Reaching back to earliest times, Martin Ewans examines the historical evolution of one of today s most dangerous breeding grounds of global terrorism. After a succession of early dynasties and the emergence of an Afghan empire during the eighteenth century, the nineteenth and early twentieth century saw a fierce power struggle between Russia and Britain for supremacy in Afghanistan that was ended by the nation s proclamation of independence in 1919. A communist coup in the late 1970s overthrew the established regime and led to the invasion of Soviet troops in 1979. Roughly a decade later, the Soviet Union withdrew, condemning Afghanistan to a civil war that tore apart the nation s last remnants of religious, ethnic, and political unity. It was into this climate that the Taliban was born. Today, war-torn and economically destitute, Afghanistan faces unique challenges as it looks toward an uncertain future. Martin Ewans carefully weighs the lessons of history to provide a frank look at Afghanistan s prospects and the international resonances of the nation s immense task of total political and economic reconstruction.
