Afghanistan Revealed

Afghanistan conjures up many images in our minds; images of war amidst a landscape of dust, desert and mountains. But what do we really know about this enigmatic country and its people: a people who are proud, hospitable yet fiercely protective of their heritage; a people who have recently endured over 30 years of conflict. This book takes us beyond the media focus on politics and war into the lives of the Afghan people, and explores the forces that have shaped their individual and collective history.

Afghanistan Revealed examines Afghanistan through the eyes of distinguished writers and specialists in their field who challenge our commonly held perceptions. Only through a greater knowledge of this extraordinary country can we hope to understand why peace and stability have been so elusive; and fully appreciate the challenges faced by the Afghan people following the 2014 withdrawal of NATO-led combat troops from the country. With due humility we can better help the Afghan people find the peace and prosperity that they deserve and aspire to.
