Afghanistan's Two-Party Communism
Afghanistan's Two-Party Communism
By Anthony Arnold
Hoover Press, 1983, 260 pp

The author, a former U.S. intelligence officer, provides a well-documented history of Afghan communism and concludes, contrary to Ziring (above), that the Soviet commitment to remain in Afghanistan is not so firm as is commonly assumed. He thinks the Soviets can be induced to withdraw their forces, but he doesn't say how.
