Product Description
Correspondent Ahmed Rashid brings the shadowy world of the Taliban—the world’s most extreme and radical Islamic organization—into sharp focus in this enormously insightful book. He offers the only authoritative account of the Taliban available to English-language readers, explaining the Taliban’s rise to power, its impact on Afghanistan and the region, its role in oil and gas company decisions, and the effects of changing American attitudes toward the Taliban. He also describes the new face of Islamic fundamentalism and explains why Afghanistan has become the world center for international terrorism.Amazon.com Review
This is the single best book available on the Taliban, the fundamentalist Islamic regime in Afghanistan responsible for harboring the terrorist Osama bin Laden. Ahmed Rashid is a Pakistani journalist who has spent most of his career reporting on the region–he has personally met and interviewed many of the Taliban’s shadowy leaders. Taliban was written and published before the massacres of September 11, 2001, yet it is essential reading for anyone who hopes to understand the aftermath of that black day. It includes details on how and why the Taliban came to power, the government’s oppression of ordinary citizens (especially women), the heroin trade, oil intrigue, and–in a vitally relevant chapter–bin Laden’s sinister rise to power. These pages contain stories of mass slaughter, beheadings, and the Taliban’s crushing war against freedom: under Mullah Omar, it has banned everything from kite flying to singing and dancing at weddings. Rashid is for the most part an objective reporter, though his rage sometimes (and understandably) comes to the surface: “The Taliban were right, their interpretation of Islam was right, and everything else was wrong and an expression of human weakness and a lack of piety,” he notes with sarcasm. He has produced a compelling portrait of modern evil. –John Miller
