About this title

Synopsis:

Globalizing Afghanistan offers a kaleidoscopic view of Afghanistan and the global networks of power, influence, and representation in which it is immersed. The military and nation-building interventions initiated by the United States in reaction to the events of September 11, 2001, are the background and motivation for this collection, but they are not the immediate subject of the essays. Seeking to understand the events of the past decade in a broad frame, the contributors draw on cultural and postcolonial approaches to provide new insights into this ongoing conflict. They focus on matters such as the implications of Afghanistan’s lucrative opium trade, the links between the contemporary Taliban movement and major events in the Islamic world and Central Asia since the early twentieth century, and interactions between transnational feminist organizations and the Afghan women’s movement. Several contributors address questions of representation. One looks at portrayals of Afghan women by the U.S. government and Western media and feminists. Another explores the surprisingly prominent role of Iranian filmmaking in the production of a global cinematic discourse about Afghanistan. A Pakistani journalist describes how coverage of Afghanistan by reporters working from Pakistan’s Khyber-Pakhtoonkhwa (formerly the North West Frontier Province) has changed over the past decade. This rich panoply of perspectives on Afghanistan concludes with a reflection on how academics might produce meaningful alternative viewpoints on the exercise of American power abroad.

Store Description

Bailey's Bibliomania is a small, used & new bookstore located in the Historic Downtown District of Ellensburg, Washington. We opened the brick and mortar portion of our business in January of 2006. We previously listed books on Abebooks for several years until an accident caused us to take a long break in our business. During that hiatus we also moved our store causing us to decide to start our inventory listings anew. In our inventory we have many thousands of great books that will be listed here on AbeBooks. We have a very eclectic inventory and tend to focus on those books that are unique in some aspect, leaving the popular titles to be sold in our physical store. We strive to rank and describe each book carefully so that buyers know exactly what they are ordering. Please visit us often as we grow here! Thanks for visiting! Mary & John, Owners
