Strategically located at the heart of south-central Asia, Afghanistan is a landlocked country, home to breathtaking landscapes and a diverse group of peoples. Throughout its long history, the country has been a battleground on which empires and armies have fought for regional control. From the violent sport of buzkashi to soaring, colorful kites, from the migratory Kochis to the resilient mujahedin guerrillas, and from the peaceful reign of Zahir Shah to the harsh but brief Taliban regime, this book showcases a nation seeking a stable future that is free from political oppression and war.
