About this product
- DescriptionAfter the Ottoman empire, Afghanistan became the second largest empire of the Muslim world. However, the Saddozai kings, in less than a century, squandered away a whole empire to be banished from Afghanistan in 1842. This book is a fascinating study of the history of Afghanistan and why in recent years it has reverted to tribal warfare.
