Is yr country invading Afghanistan? Who'll it be next mnth? What's the invasion flavor of the mnth?! Anyway, I decided to read this to try to educate myself about Afhgani politics around the time the US government decided to invade there. It's published by Yale University Press - wch immediately makes it suspect as ruling elite propaganda - but I still found it to be informative & even-handed anyway. Will fundamentalist religious assholes NEVER GO AWAY?! & by that, I mean the ones in Afghanistan AND the United States (etc) - in case that wasn't already obvious.
