Afghanistan: An Oxfam Country Profile
Chris Johnson
Price: $ 9.95

Momentous changes have taken place in Afghanistan since the first edition of this Profile was published (Afghanistan: A Land in Shadow¸ Oxfam GB, 1998). Taliban extremists were tightening their grip on power, but the full implications of their regime were still to be seen, 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.

Chris Johnson is one of the few Western journalists currently living and working inside Afghanistan. Researching for this new edition of her book, she traveled widely to interview members of communities living on the edge of survival. The text is illustrated by her own dramatic photographs, and supplemented by an annotated list of resources and an up-dated file of facts and figures. It is essential reading for anyone who is concerned about the prospects for peace in this war-weary country, and the implications for regional stability and - ultimately - for global security.
