Description - The Taliban by Peter Marsden
In the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001, US allegations that Osama bin Laden's network was responsible, and the subsequent military attacks on Afghanistan, the Taliban have become the focal point of the West's difficult relations with the Islamic world. This work aims to provide an understanding of what has been happening inside the country, the nature of radical Islamic movements, and the very difficult questions which war cannot answer. The book has been fully revised in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks, including a new chapter on Osama Bin Laden.
