Afghanistan--Then and Now

Join Dave Milidonis and Carol Rahmani as they take you on a time-travel through the history of Afghanistan, from the era of Alexander the Great up to the rise of the Taliban and Sept. 11, 2001. You will discover how the complex and diverse Afghan culture evolved through centuries of invasions by foreign empires, resulting in several military conquests and numerous failures. There were unique religious developments, various forms of governance, and frequent political upheaval. The Persians, Greeks, Mongols, Ottomans, British, Soviets and Americans all were involved--and entangled--in Afghanistan. The land has been conquered several times, yet the people and their culture have survived as a mosaic and amalgam of all that went before. Join us and discover why.
