Momentous changes have taken place in Afghanistan since the first edition of this Profile was published (Afghanistan: A Land in Shadow, Oxfam GB, 1998). Then the Taliban were tightening their grip on power; but the full implications of their regime were still unknown. and the events of September 11th 2001 and their consequences for the people of Afghanistan were as yet unimaginable. In this new edition, Chris Johnson brings the story up to date, examining the impact of international and regional power politics on the everyday lives of ordinary Afghans, in their struggle to survive and rebuild their country.
