In 1983, the International Conference on Afghan Alternatives brought together a small but diverse group of scholars and officials to discuss at length and in depth the issues raised by the tragic conflict that continues between the overwhelming majority of the Afghan people and the Soviet invaders since December 1979. In Afghan Alternatives, the participants have expanded and updated their conference remarks to illuminate the issues, present policy options, and offer wide-ranging and provocative solutions to the Afghan conflict, which they all view as a dangerous and illegitimate use of force by the Soviet Union.

Afghan Alternatives answers these questions: Why did the Soviet Union invade Afghanistan? What options do they have now? What are the long-term strategic dangers for the region should the Soviets be allowed to absorb Afghanistan? What is the effect of Islamic ideology on the conflict? What are the security and political aspects of Afghan refugees in Pakistan? What are the broader aspects of the relationship of the Afghan resistance to the international order? What international developments could help resolve the conflict? What is the role of the international community in providing aid to Afghanistan? How does this conflict affect Pakistani-Afghan relations?

MEDIA REVIEWS

"For more than six years Soviet troops have occupied Afghanistan in a vain attempt to bring stability to a puppet government there. The war has led to a mass exodus of refugees to Pakistan and Iran, and savage fighting continues within the country. . . . Afghan Alternatives records the results of an international conference held in November 1983 that attempted to outline some of the possibilities for future developments in Afghanistan. It is a mark of just how little progress has occurred since then. . . . It is this fighting and the Soviet response to it that is truly setting the agenda for the future."

--Thomas J. Barfield, Contemporary Sociology
