This volume serves as a comprehensive introduction to Afghanistan, a state which has a troubled past and an equally turbulent present. Bernt Glatzer traces the formation of the state through to the present day. He analyzes the politics of ethnicity in a country polarized by folk religions and their opposition to the dominant religion of Islam. These form the essential backdrop to a discussion concerning the economic volatility of the state and its domestic affairs and the implications of these to international relations. This book closes with the question: will Afghanistan survive?
