ABSTRACT
The article presents photographs of various sections of Kabul, Afghanistan that illustrate differences and similarities between 1994 and 2010. The author observes that despite government corruption and an ongoing war, the lives of many in Kabul have improved over that period. A major concern among the population, he notes, is what might happen when U.S. military forces leave Afghanistan.
