The Taliban and the Crisis of Afghanistan by ed. Robert D. Crews, Amin Tarzi

The best essay in this collection examines the Taliban’s often horrific use of public spectacle – hangings, whippings, and the like – and weaves that into a discussion of the marginalization of women under the current regime.
