Editorial Reviews


Recent developments in Afghanistan certainly justify this new edition, which even libraries that already have the first or second editions will want. Recommended. Public and academic libraries. (Choice)

Covers important economic, social, and cultural topics as well as significant people, places, events, institutions, groups, and movements from the whole sweep of Afghan history (Booklist)

Adamec touches upon all topics, persons, events, institutions, and places related to Afghanistan's historical, political, economic, and social development. (Middle East Journal)

This new edition, like all the volumes in the Asian/Oceanian series, is a very valuable reference tool. With world attention on and American involvement in Afghanistan likely to be long term, this comprehensive compendium will be most popular in libraries. The book should be widely held. (Arba)
