Rashid offers an authoritative explanation of the Taliban, including its rise to power, its impact on Afghanistan and the Middle East region, its role in oil and gas company decisions, and the effect that changing American attitudes have on the organization. He also explains the context of Islamic fundamentalism and why Afghanistan has become the center of international terrorism.
