Hamid Karzai made history on December 7, 2004, when he was officially sworn in as Afghanistan’s first democratically elected president. The world applauded as he vowed to heal his wounded country. A nation with a long and tumultuous history, Afghanistan had endured much over the previous two decades. Invading Soviet troops, resistance by the mujahideen, anarchy, the oppressive rule of the Taliban, and finally U.S. military action after Sept. 11 had left the country in ruins. Intelligent, calm, and diplomatic, Hamid Karzai still has a formidable task ahead of him. Will it be possible to restore hope to the Afghan people? Can he bring order and stability to his war-weary nation? This book tackles such tough questions head-on, while giving clear insights into the background and tactics of one of the world's most crucial decision-makers. Hamid Karzai is an excellent resource for students seeking to enhance their knowledge of contemporary world issues and the important figures behind them.
