About This Item

UK,8vo wraps,no dw/dj - as issued,paperback original,p/back 1st edn. [Paperback original denotes the first format and its first appearance in print of the book/title.Paperbacks usually follow on from the HB edn,but can be published at the same time as the HB edn,but p/back originals are published prior to any other format.] VG+.Fore-edges slightly aged and book is slightly cocked. In the face of sophisticated weapons of destruction and more than 100,000 Russian troops,the warriors of the Afghan Resistance - the Muhjahadin - continue their fight for freedom,although there are Western journalists who seem anxious to claim that the war is over.Lessing has been involved with the Resistance through the aid organisation Afghan Relief.In Sept,1986 she flew to Pakistan to see for herself the conditions of the refugees and to talk to leaders of the Muhjahadin.Over seven years since Russia invaded Afghanistan and in that time beautiful parts of the country have been reduced to desert and ancient towns full of art treasures bombed flat.One out of three Afghans is now dead or in exile or living in refugee camps.And the world remains largely indifferent.This is an impassioned attempt to change that.
