BeschreibungRobert D. Kaplan, bestselling author of Balkan Ghosts, offers a unique opportunity to increase our understanding of a people and a country at the center of world events. Here is a first-hand account of the guerrilla fighters, including Ahmad Shah Massoud and Abdul Haq, who drove out the Soviet invaders only to lose control of the country to the ruthless Taliban but whose continued struggle is key to ridding Afghanistan of terrorists and their supporters.
