This event has passed.

Most Westerners still see the war in Afghanistan as a contest between democracy and Islamist fanaticism. That war is real, says Tamim Ansary, but it sits atop deeper, older struggles. In Games Without Rules, Ansary explains Afghanistan’s history from the inside out, illuminating the long internal struggle that the outside world has never fully understood, and offering insight into a country still at the center of political debate.
