A nice allegory 4. Dezember 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have read this book both before and after Sept. 11... It is well written and moves along at a good clip, but it really does not seem to present a true or valid picture of the Mujahadeen or the situation in Afghanistan, even at the time it was written.
Assuming Palmer actually was in Afghanistan and actually met some of the people he talks about, all the book can be viewed as is a well meaning fairy tail about the brave and chivalrous fighters against the Soviets. One doubts that any of the incidents in the book really took place, or if they did, that they were described acurately.
Reading other books about the war in Afghanistan makes it pretty clear that the anti-soviet fighters were formidable, but hardly chivalrous or even civilized in any sense that we in the west would understand.
If read as a Sufi allegory, it is quite valuable and illuminating, hence the 5 stars. But anyone wanting a true view of the fighting in Afghanistan would be better served with any of a number of books written by authors such as Larry P. Goodson, Jason Elliot, Eric Newby, Artem Borovik or a host of others.
A farrago of nonsense (being generous...) 16. Februar 2015
Von John Frum - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book sits on my bookshelf alongside Idries Shah's "Kara Kush" (and several dozen other books on Afghanistan, a country of which I have some personal experience.) It's been a number of years (probably decades) since I read either of these tomes however I can well recall my reaction to both: utter b0ll0x. At the very best they are total fantasy, at worst, pernicious.
Don't waste time with either book. Instead read any of the many excellent books about the country. Robert Byron's "The Road to Oxiana" might be a good start for someone with no previous knowledge of the country other than that derived from three decades of bad news. Artyom Borovik's "The Hidden War" is an excellent account of the Soviet adventure there. Here are some others:
"Afghantsy" by Roderick Braithwaite. "The Spaces in Between" by Rory Stewart. "Ghost Wars" by Steve Coll. There are many other worthwhile books. This farrago of nonsense isn't one of them.

Learn about Afghanistan from the inside 17. September 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A must-read for anyone who seeks exposure to deep insights into the culture, as well as aspects that go beyond culture. Another, related, book that comes to mind is Kara Kush by Idries Shah.
