Rugged, remote, riven by tribal rivalries and religious violence, Afghanistan seems to many a forsaken country frozen in time. Robert Crews presents a bold challenge to this misperception. During their long history, Afghans have engaged and connected with a wider world, occupying a pivotal position in the Cold War and the decades that followed.

This book, by one of the most experienced authorities on the subject, presents a deep analysis of the very difficult current situation in Afghanistan. Covering a wide range of important subjects including state-building, democracy, war, the rule of law, and international relations, the book draws out two overarching key factors: the way in which the prevailing neopatrimonial political order has become entrenched, making it very difficult for any other political order to take root; and the hostile region in which Afghanistan is located, especially the way in which an ongoing ‘creeping invasion’ from Pakistani territory has compromised the aspirations of both the Afghan government and its international backers to move the country to a more stable position.

Σε μια μικρή πόλη της δυτικής Νιγηρίας τέσσερα νεαρά αδέλφια –ο μικρότερος είναι εννιά και ο μεγαλύτερος δεκαπέντε– εκμεταλλεύονται την απουσία του πατέρα τους από το σπίτι για να πάνε για ψάρεμα στο απαγορευμένο κοντινό ποτάμι. Εκεί θα συναντήσουν έναν επικίνδυνο τρελό που θα προφητεύσει ότι ο μεγαλύτερος αδελφός θα δολοφονηθεί από ένα από τα αδέλφια του. Αυτή η προφητεία θα σταθεί η αφορμή να διαλυθεί ο ισχυρός δεσμός τους και η αφετηρία μιας αλυσίδας τραγικών γεγονότων σχεδόν μυθικών διαστάσεων. Μια ιστορία αγάπης, μίσους και εκδίκησης που διαδραματίζεται με φόντο τις κοινωνικοπολιτικές εξελίξεις στη Νιγηρία της δεκαετίας του ’90. Μια συγκλονιστική αφήγηση με τη φωνή του μικρότερου αδελφού, του Μπέντζαμιν, και εξαιρετική χρήση της γλώσσας. Αναφορές στην αφρικάνικη φύση, στους μύθους και τις δοξασίες της Νιγηρίας, καταγραφή της καθημερινότητας με κύριο άξονα τη σύγκρουση μεταξύ παραδοσιακού και δυτικού τρόπου ζωής, σε ένα έξοχο πρώτο βιβλίο ενός λογοτέχνη που αξιοποιεί με μοντέρνο τρόπο την αφρικάνικη αφηγηματική παράδοση και φαίνεται να έχει μακρά καριέρα μπροστά του.

This book focuses on the crises facing Al Qaeda and how the mass killing of Muslims is challenging its credibility as a leader among Islamist jihadist organizations. The book argues that these crises are directly related to Al Qaeda’s affiliation with the extreme violence employed against Muslims in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Pakistan in the decade since 9/11. Al Qaeda’s public and private responses to this violence differ greatly. While in public Al Qaeda has justified those attacks declaring that, for the establishment of a state of ‘true believers’, they are a necessary evil, in private Al Qaeda has been advising its local affiliates to refrain from killing Muslims. To better understand the crises facing Al Qaeda, the book explores the development of Central Al Qaeda’s complex relationship with radical (mis)appropriations and manifestations of takfir, which allows one Muslim to declare another an unbeliever, and its unique relationship with each of its affiliates in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The author then goes on to consider how the prominence of takfir is contributing to the deteriorating security in those countries and how this is affecting Al Qaeda’s credibility as an Islamist terror organization. The book concludes by considering the long-term viability of Al Qaeda and how its demise could allow the rise of the even more radical, violent Islamic State and the implications this has for the future security of the Middle East, North Africa and Central/South Asia. This book will be of much interest to students of political violence and terrorism, Islamism, global security and IR.
