Synopsis: ‘The compendium not only sheds new light, but offers fresh hope. It is essential reading.’ Tim Butcher, best-selling author

Hardly a day goes by without Afghanistan making headline news – but what do we really know about this complex and enigmatic country, its people, its culture and most importantly, its future? This book takes us beyond the media focus on politics and war into the lives of the Afghan people, and the forces that have shaped their individual and collective history.

Distinguished specialists shed light on Afghanistan from the earliest Aryan migrations and the emergence of Islam, through the country’s role as a key Central Asian trade center, the Anglo-Afghan wars and the Soviet invasion, to the emergence of a post-Taliban state. We are reminded of how the Afghans have suffered in centuries of violent conflict and have stubbornly resisted efforts to invade and dominate their land. We are presented with the tasks Afghanistan faces after the 2014 withdrawal of NATO-led combat troops, specifically the need to rebuild the country, create jobs, provide education, tap into its huge economic potential, and provide political and social harmony.

Readable and accessible, Afghanistan Revealed is essential background for anyone wishing to understand why peace and stability in the region have been so elusive.

About the Author: This book brings together an impressive group of scholars, historians, journalists and photographers including Pulitzer nominee journalist and National Geographic filmmaker Dr Whitney Azoy;Yossef Bodansky, author of the New York Times bestseller Bin Laden: The Man Who Declared War on America and BBC foreign correspondent David Loyn.
