Culture and Customs of Afghanistan

For centuries, Afghanistan has been the crossroads of many civilizations. Invading armies and tribes have passed through Afghanistan, leaving their mark on the culture and way of life there. In the past century, it has been the site of Soviet occupation, civil war, and U.S. invasion to bring down the Taliban regime. While its political stability and future are still to be settled, few scholars have considered how the customs and the people who live in Afghanistan are affected by this regular influx of foreign influences. This book provides clear and understandable explanations of the land, history, economy, social conditions and people who call Afghanistan their home.
