Afghanistan : some new approaches by George Grassmuck( Book )

6 editions published in 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of articles and other materials relating to Afghanistan is the product of a seminar held at the University of Michigan in the summer of 1967 under the academic direction of Dr. Adamec. As the title suggests, it is not a comprehensive treatment but rather the expression of the particular interests of some of the participants. The three principal papers are those by: Leon Poullada, who argues that Amanullah's fall was due not so much to resentment against his programme of modernization, as to his provoking a clash over conscription with the tribes, which he lacked the military force to control; Patrick Reardon, who describes the course of recent political developments; and Ludwig Adamec, who uses the German archives to discuss the part played by Germany in the foreign policy of Afghanistan since the first World War. -- From http://www.jstor.org (August 31, 2016)
