About this product
- DescriptionA decade after the US-led invasion of Afghanistan in October 2001, the country continues to face a growing insurgency and crises of governance. The Afghanistan Conflict and Australia's Role tackles a number of critical dimensions - politics, society, military, and reconstruction - of this conflict from a range of perspectives. This book unpacks the nature and complexity of the conflict at national and international levels. It makes a critical assessment of the performance of President Hamid Karzai and his government, and the efforts made by the international community, the US and its NATO and n-NATO allies in particular, to stabilise, rebuild and secure Afghanistan as a viable state. In addition, it examines critically the role played by Australia in the conflict. The conclusions are far-reaching, with relevance to anyone interested in the interconnectedness of many contemporary issues - governance, democratisation, development, the role of the media, and counterinsurgency.
