Book Review: "Afghanistan from the Cold War through the War on Terror", by Barnett R. Rubin
Barnett R. Rubin, a noted observer (and participant), of the nation building effort in Afghanistan has wrote a book entitled "Afghanistan from the Cold War through the War on Terror", Oxford University Press, April 2013. It is a good read (according to the book review linked to below) for those interested in the socio-economic and political history of Afghanistan. It also will be of interest to those who look at the effect foreign powers have on a state. Some of the essays in the book cover human rights, security, narcotics trade, and post-conflict state building. Read a book review here located on the London School of Economics Review of Books website (review by Samay Borom).
