Gr 5-9-This revision of the 1995 edition presents an overview of Afghanistan's geography, history, government, and culture. The chapters on history and government have been substantially revised and updated to discuss al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and the current government, and the author has added a new chapter on the environment. The "Quick Notes" section of the earlier volume has been expanded to include maps of "Economic Afghanistan" and "Cultural Afghanistan." They are accompanied by charts of quick facts, and a new time line compares Afghani and world history. The information is detailed and current through 2005. Illustrated with numerous attractive color photographs, the book would be a good choice for updating a collection, given the many changes in this part of the world in recent years. Libraries that own the older volume will want to replace it with this edition.-Kathleen E. Gruver, Burlington County Library, Westampton, NJ Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
