Overview

The History of the War in Afghanistan by John Kaye

Sir John Kaye’s three volumes remain the first substantive account of the war in Afghanistan. Eschewing the generality of other writers of the time, such as Mill and Elphinstone, Kaye instead makes use of extensive primary source material, including government records and the private papers and correspondence of many of the drama’s key figures. The result is an outstanding work, whose original assessment retains a power and insight that remain relevant to the modern day. With an extensive new introduction by Benjamin Hopkins, Associate Professor of History and International Relations, George Washington University, this seminal work will be welcomed by all with an interest in the history and politics of the region.
