The Carpet Wars - A Journey Across the Islamic Heartlands
Title:
The Carpet Wars - A Journey Across the Islamic Heartlands
Kremmer, Christopher
$22.00
Christopher Kremmer's odyssey through the crescent of Islamic nations began in the early 1990s, when he arrived in Afghanistan to meet the communist-backed president, Mohammed Najibullah. On the outskirts of Kabul, mujahideen rebels were massing while the carpet dealers of the old city continued to ply their timeless trade. Kremmer was in Kabul when the mujahideen turned their guns on one another after ridding the country of the hated communists.
