Soldiers of God: With Islamic Warriors in Afghanistan and Pakistan - Robert D. Kaplan This was written in the early 90’s, and looks at the local players in Afghanistan, the various tribal leaders, with a lot of information about what the Soviets did there during their war. Kaplan actually spent some time with the combatants and provides an intimate portrait of the nation, such as it is. This is a worthwhile read.
