Summary
"This Country Profile presents a concise account of the historical and political background to the present situation in Afghanistan; a country at the meeting-point of south, west, and central Asia." "Because of its strategic position, Afghanistan became a setting for a 'proxy war' between Russia and the Western powers during the 1980s. Since the withdrawal of Russian troops in 1989, and a consequent loss of interest on the part of Western countries, Afghanistan has seen the rise of local militia leaders, a slow disintegration of central government, and a descent into anarchy. More recently the Taliban, a strict and dogmatic Islamic force, have extended their power over most of the country." "Afghanistan: A Land in Shadow examines how this history of war and armed resistance has affected the lives of ordinary people and finds examples of people rebuilding their lives and maintaining the bonds of family and tradition, despite the suffering and poverty."--Jacket
