    Afghanistan traces the historic struggles and the changing nature of political authority in this volatile region of the world, from the Mughal Empire in the 16th century to the Taliban resurgence today. Thomas Barfield introduces listeners to the bewildering diversity of tribal and ethnic groups in Afghanistan, explaining what unites them as Afghans despite the regional, cultural, and political differences that divide them.

    Brett says: "Great overview of Afghanistan's history"

    Story
    Where does Afghanistan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Interesting content.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Afghanistan?

    Understanding the complexity of the fragmentation that caused the Taliban to take power.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader obviously did not even attempt to pronounce the Islamic names correctly, creating such monstrosities as yooleema for ulema. Very irritating.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
