The Wall Street Journal
...excellent...contains an analysis of Soviet-Afghan relations that is clear, sober and tough-minded....avoids the common fallacies that stem from writing about geopolitics by historical analogy.
The Washington Times
A war that has lasted eight years, caused a million deaths and 5 million refugees, needs more attention than we in the West have seen fit to give it. Afghanistan: The Great Game Revisited...helps fill that need....Editor Rosanne Klass and her colleagues give us the historical background necessary to comprehend the current scene.
