Afghanistan: A Modern History

Afghanistan: A Modern History by Angelo Rasanayagam
I. B. Tauris | May 2, 2003 | English | ISBN: 1860648460 | 310 pages | PDF | 14 MB

Afghanistan has dominated world news since September 11th 2001, as it did during the Soviet occupation of 1979-89. Indeed, Afghanistan has long been the focal point of East-West relations, particularly during the 19th and early 20th centuries when its mountain ranges provided the arena where the world's greatest powers sought to expand their influence. Squeezed between four empires–Russia, China, India, and Persia–Afghanistan's tortured history provides an extraordinary glimpse into the patterns of world movements. Today Afghanistan sits at the pivot of a region where new spheres of influence are taking shape as the U.S. positions itself into becoming a major player in Central Asia. The first serious history of modern Afghanistan, this book is of vital importance for understanding the country's current crisis and is essential reading for historians, policy makers, and all those interested in the state of the world today.

Afghanistan and Central Asia: A Modern History by Martin Mccauley
Routledge; 1 edition | March 18, 2002 | English | ISBN: 058250614X | 208 pages | PDF | 1 MB

The Afghan crisis has grabbed the attention of the entire world, and underlined the desperate need in the West for a better understanding of the region and its challenges in the face of increasingly militant interpretations of Islam. Carved up and fought over by the British and Tsarist Russia in the nineteenth century, and under Soviet domination for much of the twentieth, the lonely passes, deserts and peoples of the five Central Asian republics have remained shrouded in obscurity. Even Afghanistan, the site of almost constant conflict since the Soviet invasion of 1978, is little known beyond the media images of the Islamic fundamentalist Taliban movement. Martin McCauley draws on his vast knowledge of the region and its history to provide a clear and highly readable account of Afghanistan and the Central Asian republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tasikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, from their medieval pasts to the unpredictable present. Illuminating languages and landscapes, cultures and society, he examines the rise of militant Islam and its impact on the region, the push and pull of global economics and politics, and possibilities for stability in an inherently unstable part of the world.
