Book Description

About the Book

Blood and fire have often blighted Afghanistan, the three Anglo-Afghan wars being among the bloodiest and the cruelest in its history. But Britain's partitioning of Afghanistan will rank as the greatest crime of the nineteenth century. That arbitrary line which Mortimer Durand drew in 1893 on a small piece of paper continues to bleed Afghanistan and hound the world. Alas, this story remained untold until now.

Written lucidly, Durand's Curse is the result of deep research. Fascinating details from long-buried archives of history reveal for the first time a tale of intrigue and deceit against Afghanistan. First the British and then Pakistan took away territory that belonged to Afghanistan. But Pathan families refuse to accept this artificial division. Over the last century, they have struggled to rub out this cursed line in sand.

Rajiv Dogra brings alive the wars, the tragedies and the Afghan anger against injustice in this heart-wrenching portrait of Afghanistan's misfortunes. This is a riveting account of history told by a major writer of our generation.
