A Historical Atlas of Afghanistan
Most people know Afghanistan only as a nation of war and ruins, but it is also a section of central Asia rich in art, architecture, and archaeology. Presenting the war-torn country to students also means explaining its history of Soviet occupation, years of ongoing destruction, displaced people, and ravaged art and architecture. This invaluable atlas considers these issues, but also explains centuries of Afghanistan s development through the use of both modern and historical maps.
