A History of Afghanistan” is perhaps the most acknowledged authentic historical reconstruction of this Asian nation, which has served as a centre of power struggle for a long time on account of its geographical and strategic position. The author was a diplomat who held different appointments in Seistan, Khurasan, Heart, and Chinese Turkistan, and extensively traveled the area which enabled him to gather valuable first-hand information on the subject. In writing this book he has relied on the original sources for the reconstruction of authentic history which has enhanced the value of the text and its utility for the students and the research scholars as well. Volume one deals with history of the region right from prehistoric times to the siege of Heart in AD 1833. The second volume deals with the history of Afghanistan from the first Afghan War in AD 1839 resulting in the occupation of Kabul to the assassination of King Nadir Shah and accession of King Zahir Shah in AD 1933. The volume comprises append-ices relating to different treaties and agreements besides an exhaustive list of authorities on the subject.
