The Taliban and the Crisis of Afghanistan
Edited by Robert D. Crews and Amin TarziBook - 2008
A key question of this work is how has a motley crew of zealots managed to retain a foothold in the struggle for Afghanistan's future. Here, leading scholars show how the Taliban was less an attempt to revive a medieval theocracy than a dynamic and adaptive force rooted in the history of Afghanistan and shaped by international politics.
