Oxford University Press CONDITION: NEW -- BINDING: Hardcover ~ Condition: NEW ~ This book is a concise depiction of the Taliban's military, social and political presence in Afghanistan.Many hold the view that Islam discourages freedom of thought and action. This seems to be born out by common perception which sees Muslims as fundamentalist, radical and militant. In this book, M J Gohari describes the rise of a controversial movement which has been widely criticized by the West: the Taliban in Afghanistan. Dr Gohari describes the historical background of the movement in Afghanistan, outlines the context for rapid ascent to power of the Taliban, explains what the movement stands for, and analyses how it affects various groups in Afghan society. He also discusses the impact of the Taliban on AfghanistanÆs neighbors and what he calls æthe Taliban-UN dilemmaÆ. Gohari concludes with a short chapter on the life and views of Bin Laden, which serves to demystify that elusive radical.This is an informative account of Afghanistan under Taliban rule. While there is a lot of material on the Taliban (this) covers all aspects of the countryàthere would be an important argument for making the book a self-contained source for anyone wanting to know about Afghanistan today.158 pages ~ Isbn: 0195795601 ~ language: English ~ Year: 2002 ~ Binding: Hardcover ~ Contents DedicationIntroductionCHAPTER 1AFGHANISTANÆS HISTORYBefore IslamIslamic ConquestFrom the Mongol Invasion to the19th Century Development of the Modern State from Early 1900s to the Taliban RuleCHAPTER 2THE MUJAHIDEENBurhanuddin RabbaniAhmad Shah MasoudGulbuddin HekmatyarYounus KhalisAbd al-Rab Rasul SayyafSayyed Ahmad GailaniNabi MohammadiAyatollah MazariCHAPTER 3THE TALIBANÆS ISLAMIC THEOLOGYThe Hanafite SchoolStudents, Schools, and CurriculaSources of Influence on the TalibanÆs IslamCHAPTER 4POLITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE OF THE TALIBAN RULEAllahÆs GovernmentsContemporary Political Administrations of AllahIranian ExampleSaudi ExampleThe Taliban Socio-Political DoctrineThe Taliban and DemocracyCHAPTER 5THE TALIBAN AND ECONOMYEconomic Development and the Islamic WorldA Theological Insight to the Islamic EconomyGrounds for Culmination of the Islamic EconomyThe Economy in Conformity with Other Islamic SystemsResilience of the Islamic EconomyAfghanistanÆs Economic AccountEconomic Significance of Afghanistan at Ancient TimesAfghanistanÆs Economic ResourcesEconomic Administration until 1994TalibanÆs Economic AgendaDrug Business and Taliban Economy Grounds for Western Investment in AfghanistanAfghanistanÆs Nature ResourcesHistorical Oil and Gas SurveyEnergy Sector under the TalibanClimateTransportationCommunicationsCHAPTER 6SOCIAL ORDER AND HUMAN RIGHTS UNDER THE TALIBANTaliban and EducationEthnic and Religious MinoritiesCivil RightsWomen and the Taliban RuleCHAPTER 7THE TALIBAN AND AFGHANISTANÆS NEIGHBOURSExport of the Islamic CaliphateThe Taliban and PakistanThe Taliban and IranIndia and ChinaCentral Asian Neighbors of AfghanistanCHAPTER 8BIN LADENBin LadenÆs LifeHis OutlookBin Laden and the æFatwaÆ against the US American and Taliban Row over Bin LadenCHAPTER 9A Word on the Taliban --- UN DilemmaConclusionFurther ReadingIndex ISBN: 0195795601~ language: English ~ Year: 2002 ~ Binding: Hardcover ~ Contents DedicationIntroductionCHAPTER 1AFGHANISTANÆS HISTORYBefore IslamIslamic ConquestFrom the Mongol Invasion to the19th Century Development of the Modern State from Early 1900s to the Taliban RuleCHAPTER 2THE MUJAHIDEENBurhanuddin RabbaniAhmad Shah MasoudGulbuddin HekmatyarYounus KhalisAbd al-Rab Rasul SayyafSayyed Ahmad GailaniNabi MohammadiAyatollah MazariCHAPTER 3THE TALIBANÆS ISLAMIC THEOLOGYThe Hanafite SchoolStudents, Schools, and CurriculaSources of Influence on the TalibanÆs IslamCHAPTER 4POLITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE OF THE TALIBAN RULEAllahÆs GovernmentsContemporary Political Administrations of AllahIranian ExampleSaudi ExampleThe Taliban Socio-Political DoctrineThe Taliban and DemocracyCHAPTER 5THE TALIBAN AND ECONOMYEconomic Development and the Islamic WorldA Theological Insight to the Islamic EconomyGrounds for Culmination of the Islamic EconomyThe Economy in Conformity with Other Islamic SystemsResilience of the Islamic EconomyAfghanistanÆs Economic AccountEconomic Significance of Afghanistan at Ancient TimesAfghanistanÆs Economic ResourcesEconomic Administration until 1994TalibanÆs Economic AgendaDrug Business and Taliban Economy Grounds for Western Investment in AfghanistanAfghanistanÆs Nature ResourcesHistorical Oil and Gas SurveyEnergy Sector under the TalibanClimateTransportationCommunicationsCHAPTER 6SOCIAL ORDER AND HUMAN RIGHTS UNDER THE TALIBANTaliban and EducationEthnic and Religious MinoritiesCivil RightsWomen and the Taliban RuleCHAPTER 7THE TALIBAN AND AFGHANISTANÆS NEIGHBOURSExport of the Islamic CaliphateThe Taliban and PakistanThe Taliban and IranIndia and ChinaCentral Asian Neighbors of AfghanistanCHAPTER 8BIN LADENBin LadenÆs LifeHis OutlookBin Laden and the æFatwaÆ against the US American and Taliban Row over Bin LadenCHAPTER 9A Word on the Taliban --- UN DilemmaConclusionFurther ReadingIndex, Oxford University Press

Details of the book
The Taliban: Ascent to Power.

For many people in the West, Islam appears to contradict such democratic values as freedom, individualism, and personal choice; perceptions resulting from over-generalization and the characterization of certain Islamic movements as "radical" and "fundamentalist". In this book, M.J. Gohari describes one such movement which has been roundly criticized and condemned in the West: the Taliban in Afghanistan. He analyzes the rise of the Taliban and the effect on Afghan society, takes into account their impact on Afghanistan's neighbours, their troubled relationship with the UN, and throws light on their doctrine. Gohari concludes with a short chapter on the life and views of Bin Laden, which serves to demystify an elusive radical who has famously and brutally, translated his beliefs into action.
