"Even an illiterate farmer, who likely could not locate the United States on a world map, can recite a detailed history of Kandahar. Every history will be told differently, however, because blood feuds that lasted hundreds of years still color the stories that fathers tell their sons." A concise and contemporary guide designed to orient and inform readers about the people, politics, and places of Kandahar. Topics covered include: the people (tribes, language, culture, history, etc.); the provincial government and how it functions; the economy and development activities; and key leaders and big issues. Also included inside are a number of useful tables, maps, contact information, and other resources. For bulk orders, please visit the publisher's website (www.idsinternational.com).
