Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary Afghanistan has contended with an almost continuous series of foreign interventions in its local affairs in the 19th and 20th centuries. While the resilience of the Afghan population in the face of external influence is widely recognised, how the local populations have dealt with these interventions and how local politics is structured in Afghanistan still remain somewhat open questions. This book sheds light on this phenomenon as well as illuminating the complexities of local politics in Afghanistan, analysing also how the local social order is disturbed or reinforced by outside intervention.
