When this book was published, it was considered one of the most authoritative works on the Taliban then in print. All aspects of the movement are covered here by a series of experts on the movement and the region as a whole. The book looks at how the Taliban came to be and how it took power, as well as its record in government. A key feature of the work is how attractive the movement was to the population in the South and the addressing through Sharia law of grievances such as the absence of law and order under the Rabbani Government. This book is important for anyone wishing to understand the Taliban movement and its record in government.
