Afghanistan a landlocked developing country, is geographically contiguous to Soviet Union, but a distant Country to the United States. The analysis of Relationship between a small developing country like Afghanistan and a geographically distant Super Power like the United States, presents a unique Study in many respects.The analysis of Afghan-US Relations has almost remained a neglected area of serious Academic research. The plethora of literature available on Afghanistan has not even provided a cursory treatment to this most crucial and significant aspect.A cursory analysis of the available literature leaves many questions unanswered. Can a small country like Afghanistan be usurped by a Super Power? How the small and weak Nations can survive? Will the inaction by the non-aligned Movement (NAM) and the United Nations in getting the Russian aggression vacated from Afghanistan, further encourage the Russians to annex other non-aligned countries? Can United States, as a Super Power, Help in restoration of the non-aligned status of Afghanistan safeguard its territorial integrity and sovereignty etc.The author has made an humble endeavour to probe all the aspects in detail in the present book. It is not only an attempt at providing answers to various fundamental questions arising in the aftermath of Russian invasion of Afghanistan but also provides a detailed background of Afghanistan's Relations with the United States. The book is divided into six main chapters. The first chapter provides an indepth analysis of the major factors which have been the hallmark of Afghanistan's foreign policy. The evolution of Afghan-US relations until the Second World War is analyzed in the second chapter. Afghanistan's vigorous pursuit of the Policy of neutrality in the wake of Cold war which immediately succeeded the end of the Second World War and Afghan US relations in the post-war period are critically examined in the third chapter. Economic relation in the form of trade, Aid and Technical assistance between Afghanistan and the United States have been analyzed in the fifth chapter. The concluding part of the book makes a dispassionate Review of the policy of the United States towards Russian invasion of Afghanistan and suggests the potential policy Measures for the United States in cooperation with other Countries especially the non-aligned community to help resolve the Afghan Tangle.Printed Pages: 176.
