This collection features three key previously out-of-print books that examine Afghanistan’s colonial history; its literature and culture through the tradition of oral narrative; and the social, cultural and political impact of the Soviet invasion of 1979, the ramifications of which are still being felt today. Taken together, these books provide an essential reference source on the history, culture and politics of Afghanistan.
