This book explains how the Taliban, who view themselves as guardians of God, think it is their holy mission to protect Islam from the armies of the ‘wrong’ faiths. Paradoxically, their violent defence of the sacred encompasses worldly concerns such as social justice, peace, and political order. Guiding us to a finer understanding of the Taliban worldview, Sheikh builds a case for dialogue with an enemy that may choose to lay down arms if its grievances are correctly understood. Printed Pages: 238.
