About this Item: 1986. Hardcover. Condition: New. 530 Afghanistan had very close contacts, both cultural and political, with India since very early times. All foreign invasions to India, except the last one, either routed through or originated in Afghanistan. No ruler of northern India could, therefore, afford to remain indifferent to the happenings in that mountainous neighbouring country. The East India Company, when became the masters of India, kept an eye on the developments in Afghanistan and sent residents and envoys to the Court of Kabul. The present work, first published in 1840, is the narrative, written by such an envoy to the court of Dost Mohamed Khan who occupied the throne of Kabul in the early decades of the nineteenth century. The narrative which has been written as a fascinating fiction, not only describes many political developments and troubles in that country but also presents an interesting picture of the Afghan life. The History of many places in the region have been recorded. The Author also visited the court of Maharaja Ranjit Singh at Lahore and has presented a beautiful account of the courtlife of the King, his personal habits and manners and his state policies. The author was an artist too. The Book is illustrated with several drawings by the author himself. The work contains much valuable material for the study of the history of nineteenth century Afghanistan and Punjab. With Illustrations from Drawings made by the Authors on the Spot. Chap.

About this Item: Random House, New York, 2007. Trade Paperback. Condition: As New. 320 pp. Soon after the fall of the Taliban, in 2001, Deborah Rodriguez went to Afghanistan as part of a group offering humanitarian aid to this war-torn nation. Surrounded by men and women whose skills–as doctors, nurses, and therapists–seemed eminently more practical than her own, Rodriguez, a hairdresser and mother of two from Michigan, despaired of being of any real use. Yet she soon found she had a gift for befriending Afghans, and once her profession became known she was eagerly sought out by Westerners desperate for a good haircut and by Afghan women, who have a long and proud tradition of running their own beauty salons. Thus an idea was born. With the help of corporate and international sponsors, the Kabul Beauty School welcomed its first class in 2003. Well meaning but sometimes brazen, Rodriguez stumbled through language barriers, overstepped cultural customs, and constantly juggled the challenges of a postwar nation even as she learned how to empower her students to become their families’ breadwinners by learning the fundamentals of coloring techniques, haircutting, and makeup.Yet within the small haven of the beauty school, the line between teacher and student quickly blurred as these vibrant women shared with Rodriguez their stories and their hearts: the newlywed who faked her virginity on her wedding night, the twelve-year-old bride sold into marriage to pay her family’s debts, the Taliban member’s wife who pursued her training despite her husband’s constant beatings. Through these and other stories, Rodriguez found the strength to leave her own unhealthy marriage and allow herself to love again, Afghan style.With warmth and humor, Rodriguez details the lushness of a seemingly desolate region and reveals the magnificence behind the burqa. Kabul Beauty School is a remarkable tale of an extraordinary community of women who come together and learn the arts of perms, friendship, and freedom.From the Hardcover edition.
