From the Publisher
In 1970, Peter Levi—classical scholar, archaeologist, and poet—set off with Bruce Chatwin in search of the classical heritage of Afghanistan. Greek conquerors, Buddhist monks, Moghul emperors, doomed British soldiers—all have traveled Afghanistan, one of the great crossroads of history. This classic work, written prior to the Soviet invasion, is now reissued with fresh photographs from the Chatwin archives as well as a new introduction in which Peter Levi looks back on a bygone Afghanistan and on his friendship with the young Chatwin. Peter Levi pursued an academic career as a classicist at Oxford and was later elected Professor of Poetry at Oxford. His published work includes many volumes of poetry as well as biographies, Greek translations, travel books, and an autobiography, The Flutes of Autumn. He died in 2000.
