Description

For decades, the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) has been working to revitalize the social, cultural, and economic strength of communities in the Muslim world through its Historic Cities Programme. This book documents more than 100 such efforts that have been carried out in Afghanistan since 2002. Each project is illustrated with specially commissioned photographs and detailed descriptions. A powerful testament to the AKTC's commitment to Islamic culture, this book documents the organization's ongoing work to celebrate, restore, and maintain Afghanistan's cultural presence in the modern world.
