ABSTRACT
'The Rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan: Mass Mobilization, Civil War, and the Future of the Region,' by Neamatollah Nojumi, looks at Afghan history beginning with King Amanallah, who ruled from 1919-1929. The author concludes that state-building, needed even more now, requires a third movement 'different from the radical communists and fanatic Islamists.'
