    Games Without Rules Kindle È Games Without PDF \ É PDF/EPUB 14th century.co games book, without epub, rules ebok, Games Without ebok, Games Without Rules MOBII don't think I could add much to the many good reviews already posted in regards to Games Without Rules I picked this book up in a local book shop one weekend and was sucked into the story straight away As soon as I got home I started reading the book learning little bits and pieces of history as I went If you know the history of this region there may not be a great deal that is new to you but regardless this is a fresh look at Afghanistan's history from the perspective of the people and land a look from the inside not the outside The telling of the story is engaging and at times funny Indeed there is a robust tradition of the mullah as rascal typified by Mullah Nasruddin a fanciful figure featured in a rich body of humorous folk anecdotes One such anecdote for example relates that the mullah’s neighbour came to borrow his donkey The mullah was reluctant He said “I’m sorry

    Games Without Rules Kindle È Games Without PDF \ É PDF/EPUB 14th century.co games book, without epub, rules ebok, Games Without ebok, Games Without Rules MOBIIf ever there was a lay history of Afghanistan that the average person should read this'd be it This is an often hilarious never pretentious history of Afghanistan from 1750 on Ansary is a fun writer he never gets lost in the academic morass or unneeded political niceties that dog so much of contemporary history Afghanistan is fucked up and he makes no bones about this but he keeps his analysis simple salient and funnyIt's all here the early attempts by Afghani rulers to hoist their region by its ankles the British and Russians fucking around the Soviets fucking around the Taliban show up then the Americans and everything goes even further to shit All the while normal Afghans bear the brunt of stupid conflicts imposed from without that most of them have nothing to do with itAnsary never loses sight of Afghanistan's complexity and in fact this serves as the backbone to the work Afghanistan's cultural and social nuances and weirdness is exactly why it's been a perennia

    Games Without Rules Kindle È Games Without PDF \ É PDF/EPUB 14th century.co games book, without epub, rules ebok, Games Without ebok, Games Without Rules MOBIA good accessible history of the country What I enjoyed most was how Ansary links current and recent events in Afghanistan to its own complex history and how he puts Afghanistan into an international context; for example he writes how events in India led the British and the Russians to engage in the “Great Game” and how events in Afghanistan in the 1990s influenced and were influenced by events in Central AsiaAnsary writes well and the story never bogs down or gets boring The story is full of humor adventure naivety and de

    Games Without Rules Kindle È Games Without PDF \ É PDF/EPUB 14th century.co games book, without epub, rules ebok, Games Without ebok, Games Without Rules MOBIA very bold and subjective view of history of Afghanistan from the time of Abdullah Shah Baba to the present I enjoyed the particular take of history from Tamim Ansary point of view Afghanistan is not unconuerable but ungovernable and Afghanis don't unite to fight against the occupier but divide even further making the occupiers task impossible As a Pakistani though I found his views on Pakistan pretty difficult to digest There was scant regard for Pakistan's hospitality role in housing millions of Afghanis in its midst I myself saw my Islamabad literally invaded by thousands of Afghanis back in the 80's bringing the property prices up I also didn't uite understand the 'non aligned' role which Afghanistan seemed to have adopted How can it be nonal
