Reviewed in India on 1 January 2018
The author has simplified a complex issue into a readable historical & political version and that is highly impressive.
There are many a books on Afghan history but seldom do they talk about the colonial British arrogance and this book tries to rectify it with the perspective of the pashtun right to freedom. Being in the foreign service, the author has taken a few pot-shots at Pakistan's flawed Afghanistan policy too, but I am sure most of the Indian readers will enjoy that part!
There are a few typo errors, like on page 22 but otherwise the book is a joy to read. It's fresh and keeps you occupied in geopolitics.
