The Afghanistan Wars: Second Edition - Twentieth Century Wars (Hardback)William Maley (author)
- We can order this
This new edition of The Afghanistan Wars provides a meticulously-documented history of these successive waves of conflict. It explores in detail:
* the roots of Afghanistan's slide into disorder in the late 1970s
* how the Soviet Union came to the rescue of unworthy clients and was then sucked into a quagmire
* the frightening consequences of state breakdown and self-interested meddling by Afghanistan's neighbours in the period after communist rule collapsed
* the rise and fall of the Taliban regime.
Thoroughly revised in the light of the latest research, the second edition also features a new final chapter which examines post-Taliban Afghanistan, bringing the story up to the present day and mounting a strong case for continuing support for this troubled country.
