Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-A thorough introduction to the history, religion, and culture of Afghanistan. The information is current, including a discussion of the Taliban and its repressive practices, as well as life in this country since the regime was ousted. The text explains how its geography has strongly influenced the country's development and its people, and also how many invaders have attempted to conquer this territory. Similar in coverage to Jeffrey Gritzner's Afghanistan (Chelsea, 2002), Corona's title is more in-depth, but is not as attractive. It lacks a good map and offers only black-and-white illustrations, compared to the color photographs in Gritzner's title.-Marion F.
