Central Asia is a relatively understudied neighbor of Afghanistan. The region is often placed into a number of historical and political contexts—a section of the Silk Road, a pawn in the “Great Game,” the “spillover” state that exemplifies the failure of US foreign policy—that limit scholarly understanding.

Book – Imrana Begum, The Impact of the Afghan-Soviet War on Pakistan, Oxford, 2017

Imrana Begum, The Impact of the Afghan-Soviet War on Pakistan, Oxford, 2017

Since December 1979, when Soviet troops first entered Afghanistan, the country has remained a focal point in regional and global politics. With a focus on the 1980s, The Impact of the Afghan-Soviet War on Pakistan delves into both Afghanistan’s history and the involvement of superpowers in shaping its present situation. Through the investigation of a complex and highly politicized war, the author demonstrates the direct correlation between Pakistan’s society, politics, and economy with the state of affairs in Afghanistan. In a world currently fighting the War on Terror, this book serves as a useful examination of the region and emphasizes that a peaceful Afghanistan is crucial for a peaceful Pakistan.

Interviews of Central Asian afgantsy who fought in Afghanistan during the Soviet invasion of 1979-1989

Интервью с воинами-интернационалистами Афганской войны 1979-1989 годов

http://centralasiaprogram.org/publications/memos-and-ebooks

This book offers unique insight into the memory of the Central Asian afgantsy, who fought in Afghanistan during the Soviet invasion of 1979-1989. This work of oral history, organized by a team of Kazakh, Tajik, and Uzbek scholars under the supervision of Prof. Laruelle, contributes to a better understanding of the deep influence of the Soviet-Afghan war on the Soviet Central Asian social fabric, and the memories still at play today.

Данная книга представляет собой уникальную информацию – память войнов-«афганцев» из трех стран Центральной Азии: Казахстана, Таджикистана и Узбекистана, принявших непосредственное участие в военных действиях в Афганистане в ходе десятилетней войны.

Благодаря замечательной работе группы, состоящей из казахстанских, таджикских и узбекских специалистов, «афганцы» Центральной Азии, наконец, получили возможность высказаться. Будучи самостоятельными вершителями своих судеб, далекими от нынешних идеологических установок, они описывают реальность своей повседневной жизни, свой опыт в качестве солдат и офицеров, а также взаимоотношения с жителями Афганистана. Они определяют то, что считают важным сохранить в памяти, в основном, свою гордость за советские достижения. Данная книга посвящена памяти всех «афганцев» Центральной Азии, которых уже нет в живых и кто уже не может поведать миру свою историю.

Книга 1 Казахстан

Книга 2 Узбекистан
