Afghanistan's Experiences is a sweeping analysis of the historic events and interplay between politics, religion, and terrorism in Afghanistan, the southeastern region of the country, and beyond. The author has vividly explained the origin and the rise of Taliban to powerone of the most important sources of turmoil in contemporary time. Thus, one can perceive how the dynamics of the sinister politics, religious extremism, and terrorism has culminated in avoidable brutal wars and human tragedies. Hamid Hadi has vividly described and put into political debate Afghanistan's history, the implications of the Russian invasion of Afghanistan, the Americans, the Pakistanis' and Saudis' role in the civil war, and the creation of the Al-Qaeda that led to the 9/11 tragedy. In a unique research and analysis, the author has examined the acts of Islamic terrorists against the American people and institutions during the last 176 years and brilliantly deduced that Russian invasion of Afghanistan was a watershed era in formation of the contemporary terrorism, and the failure of both superpowers' foreign policy in Afghanistan to a great extent has resulted in growth of the terror network. Besides detailed description of the 9/11 tragedy and Iraq war, Hamid Hadi has painstakingly brought the world religions and Abrahamic religions in particular into debate and discussed the reform of the Islamic faith.

During the Kunar ADT’s deployment between September 2009 and August 2010 they saw combat 19 times while working in remote villages. This book is the chronicle of the Kunar ADT’s deployment and operations in support of counter insurgency (COIN) operations by working with farmers to stabilizing the economies of remote villages.

The Afghan Way Of War

Focusing on key episodes in Afghanistan's long history of conflict with foreign forces from the early nineteenth century to the present, this book sheds new light on the Afghan "Way of War." Robert Johnson shows that, contrary to the stereotypes of primitive warriors enflamed with religious fanaticism, Afghan warfare has been marked by constant change as Afghani methods evolved to face new threats. From the dynastic struggles and popular resistance movements of the nineteenth century to the ideological confrontations of recent decades, Afghans have long resisted political coercion, military intervention, and foreign influence. To do so, they have developed sophisticated strategic approaches to deal with both internal unrest and foreign intrusion, while at the tactical level outthinking and outfighting their opponents at every step. The final part of the book, which deals with how the Taliban has contested Western intervention by borrowing from traditions in Afghan history and culture, will be of considerable topical interest in light of the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan.

The Afghan Conundrum Intervention Statebuilding And Resistance

This book covers the period spanning the international invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 to the foreign military withdrawal in 2014. It explores and dissects the conflictual encounter between international troops, statebuilders and donors on the one hand, and Afghan elites and the wider population on the other. It brings together a group of leading experts and analysts on Afghanistan who examine the varied reasons behind the mixed and often perverse effects of exogenous state-building and reflects upon their implications for wider theory and practice. The starting point of the various contributions is a serious engagement with empirical realities, drawing upon extended experience and field research. Their exploration of the unfolding dynamics and effects of external intervention raise fundamental questions about the core premises underlying the state-building project. This book was published as a special issue of Central Asian Survey.

There's no need to add a border once you've completed your design because the border gets stitched as you go using this book. This wonderful manual includes 25 swatches with different borders. Some of the projects you can create from these sample swatches include afghans, doilies, table cloths, pillows, wash cloths, pot holders, shawls, scarves, and more. Borders can be stitched on any or all edges—it's your choice! Sample swatches are shown using different weight yarns and threads. As an extra bonus, we've included five beautiful designs using the built-in border method: a lap throw, a reader's wrap, a headband, and a baby blanket with a matching hat. All are stitched using Plymouth Yarn Encore, a medium-weight yarn.
