Overview

War Without Winners: Afghanistan's Uncertain Transition after the Cold War by Rasul Bux Rais, Rais

The situation created by the Soviet intervention in Afghanistan attracted world-wide attention, but little effort was made to understand the domestic roots of the confrontation and to explain the links between internal strife and external invasion. In this work, the author analyzes all the factors that led to the Afghan tragedy. He examines the nature of the Afghan state and society, the dynamics of the regional and global power structure, the externalization of civil strife, and the resultant fragmentation of political power, adding fresh perspective to the debate on the politics and security of Afghanistan.

"A detailed book about Afghanistan's internal turmoil since the coup of 1973....The author concludes the path to tranquillity will require a broad-based government, a new constitution, and fair elections."--Choice
