When Western forces invaded Afghanistan in October 2001, their initial aim - to topple the Taliban regime and replace it with a more democratic government aligned with Western interests - was swiftly achieved. However, stabilizing the country has proved much more difficult. In this book, the authors examine how and why the international community has so signally failed to achieve its objectives and how, despite the promises, life has become worse rather than better for many Afghan citizens.
