About this Item

Library stamps/marks/labels/pocket, dj flaps glued to endpapers, light cock, otherwise light wear; Dust Jacket flaps glued to endpapers, spine label, protector still present. Solid hardcover.; From this dour, inward-looking, and indeed xenophobic political culture, it is remarkable that there should emerge one of the most talented, liberal, and dynamic modernizers of Asia, King Amanullah. . For the student of modernization this experiment has special significance because it ended in a civil war that cost Amanullah his throne. So violent a clash tends to expose to scrutiny and highlight the underlying political forces of a society. . I want to make clear what this work is and what it is not. It is an intensive and documented study of the dynamics of political development in Afghan tribal society at a particular period. It is not a history of the Amanullah period in the strictest sense of teh word, nor is it a biography of Amanullah." - Introduction. Contents: Introduction; I. The Politics of Tribal Power; II.
