really liked it

One of the definitive books on the Taliban and their rise to power, by the foremost Pakistan journalist, Ahmed Rashid, It is unfortunate that this book was not read or known about by anyone before 9/11. Heavy reading, not to be read in one sitting, as it is loaded with detail and very specific information about the region of Pakistan and Afghanistan in the 1980-late 1990s.
