HRH The Prince of Wales provides foreword for new hardback edition of Afghanistan Revealed

Posted on December 2, 2013 · Posted in News

The new edition from Pen & Sword Books

Afghanistan conjures up many images in our minds; images of war amidst a landscape of dust, desert and mountains. But what do we really know about this enigmatic country and its people? A people who are proud, hospitable yet fiercely protective of their heritage; a people who have recently endured over thirty years of conflict.

Afghanistan Revealed examines Afghanistan through the eyes of distinguished writers and specialists in their field who challenge our commonly held perceptions. Only through a greater knowledge of this extraordinary country can we hope to understand why peace and stability have been so elusive; and fully appreciate the challenges faced by the Afghan people following the 2014 withdrawal of NATO-led combat troops from the country. With due humility we can better help the Afghan people find the peace and prosperity that they deserve and aspire to.

This book takes us beyond the media focus on politics and war into the lives of the Afghan people, and explores the forces that have shaped their individual and collective history. It brings together an impressive group of scholars, historians, journalists and photographers including: Pulitzer nominee, journalist and National Geographic filmmaker Dr Whitney Azoy; Yossef Bodansky, author of the New York Times bestseller Bin Laden: The Man Who Declared War on America and BBC foreign correspondent David Loyn.

This new hardback edition has a foreword from His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales and an additional chapter on the economy.
