Opis produktu:

The Taliban phenomenon created a new and puzzling reality when it first appeared in 1994, gathered momentum and grew into a force that dominated the Afghan landscape. War-hardened adversaries either joined the Taliban or fell back in disarray. Some observers saw them as militant reformists with sword in one hand and the Koran in the other. The rapidity with which they brought large tracts of war-ravaged territory under control, putting an end to crime and disorder, attracted world attention until their draconian measures and fundamentalism raised alarm in the world.

Kamal Matinuddin has done an excellent job in selecting the Taliban phenomenon for a definitive study and reduce the arcane and the mysterious surrounding it to the level of the credible and the verifiable. Out of the available scattered bits and pieces, the author has been able to produce an impressively comprehensive account for the future historian to benefit from. - A.R.Siddiqi - The Nation 14.4.99

The Taliban Phenomenon, besides being a monograph, is also a multidimensional study of the Afghan psyche and history as an intricate record of mutual infighting and betrayals, of shifting loyalties and alliances. Kamal Matinuddin (reviewer) The Nation 7/4/99

The authour has expertly focused attention on the future, for Afganistan, for Pakistan and for the region as a whole .... Within the given restraints this is a excellent piece of researched work, lucidley written, frankly analyzed and boldly projected into the future. DAWN 21/02/99 General Khalid Mahmud Arif.

`The author provides a detailed account of the origin of the Taliban movement......the author's use of empirical sources is generous, skilful and correct. Matinuddin must also be commended for his neutral and dispassionate tone......his account of the Taliban makes balanced, unbiased and highly informative reading.' The Herald Annual

`The book provides a well-written and systematic account of the historical genesis of the Taliban movement.' The News

`the book will be useful for serious readers and students of international affairs ... the author has described the operational aspects of the Taliban Phenomenon 'with a precision and coherence that has been lacking in reports so far available to the public.'' Dr Afzal Mirza, The Nation on Sunday, 30/5/99
