Description - The Rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan by Neamatollah Nojumi

This study provides a comprehensive review and analysis of the process of political mass mobilization in Afghanistan during the communist upheaval (1978), the Soviet invasion along with the emergence of Afghan Mujahideen (1979-1988) and the rise of the Taliban movement (1996). The book reviews the regional importance of Afghanistan and it analyzes the prospects that existed for peace and the effects that continued warfare would have in the region. The author discusses the ongoing quest for a third political movement in Afghanistan, one that differs from the radical communists and fanatical Islamists. A new epilogue analyzes the situation after the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks in America.
