The Lost Kingdom: Memoir of an Afghan Prince by His Royal Highness Prince Ali Seraj of Afghanistan

His Royal Highness Prince Ali Seraj, a member of the royal family of Afghanistan, brings four decades of history to life--from the Cold War era when his famed nightclub in Kabul was a hotspot for global celebrities, jetsetters, and spies, to the communist Soviet takeover that killed members of his family, put a price on Prince Ali's head, and forced him to make a harrowing escape from his homeland in disguise with his American wife and family.

Prince Seraj's intimate and historic portrait of modern Afghanistan tells the inside story of a proud, ancient culture grappling with a turbulent history of invasion and transformation. His passionate and adventure-filled story opens a new door to understand a nation irrevocably linked to the stability and prosperity of Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and to the United States.
