What have been the experiences and lessons learned from reconstruction activities which have followed wars over the past ten years? With recent events both in Afghanistan and Iraq and frequent talk of on-going conflicts, this question preoccupies politicians, aid donors and the media as never before. “After the Conflict” draws together the main issues and arguments on the subject into a single volume emanating from the University of York’s Post-war Reconstruction and Development Unit (PRDU), renowned as the world’s leading research centre dedicated to the study of the aftermath of war. Examining case studies from war and post-war reconstruction scenarios around the world, this book sets out a philosophy of reconstruction that has emerged from extensive original research at PRDU. This has concluded that solutions to successful post-war reconstruction needs are to be found locally, within the communities affected by conflict and that therein lies the best hope of achieving lasting, sustainable outcomes.< ISBN: 1850434638 Publisher: I.B.TAURIS Subtitle: RECONSTRUCTION AND DEVELOPMENT IN THE AFTERMATH OF WAR Author: SULTAN BARAKAT
Conflict in Afghanistan provides a timely discussion of the concept of asymmetric warfare which has become one of the main issues of the day in the wake of the attacks of 9/11 and the ensuing invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.
Broadly speaking this describes a means of fighting where comparatively weak belligerents have been able to exploit successfully the vulnerabilities of their more powerful and sophisticated opponents. Two recent examples have been the Vietnam and the Soviet-Afghan wars, but the historical roots of the concept lie deeper, particularly in Afghanistan.
Conflict in Afghanistan, laying emphasis on contemporary documents and drawing on material from Soviet archives, centres on wars conducted in Afghanistan which have been of the asymmetric variety.
Subjects examined include:
• Five wars conducted in Afghanistan by an extemal invader over the past two centuries
• The decisions and actions of politicians and the military involved in the wars in question
• The successes and failures of diplomatic endeavours during the wars
This book is essential reading for those who have research interests in Asian studies, military studies and current affairs. ISBN: 0415341604 Publisher: ROUTLEDGE Subtitle: STUDIES IN ASYMMETRIC WARFARE Author: MARTIN EWANS
