Despite dec­la­ra­tions made by some in pow­er, the war in Afghanistan is far from over — in fact, the tur­bu­lence is esca­lat­ing. Sev­en years after 9/11, the Tal­iban con­tin­ue to regroup, attack, and claim influ­ence over most of the region.

Invis­i­ble His­to­ry presents a fresh, com­pre­hen­sive analy­sis of Afghanistan’s polit­i­cal his­to­ry that begins at the roots of trib­al lead­er­ship and ulti­mate­ly empha­sizes our cur­rent polit­i­cal moment and the impact of ongo­ing U.S. mil­i­tary inter­ven­tion. Fitzger­ald and Gould tell the real sto­ry of how the U.S. came to be in Afghanistan and what we can expect next.

PAUL FITZGERALD and ELIZABETH GOULD, a hus­band and wife team, began their expe­ri­ence in Afghanistan in 1981 for CBS News and pro­duced a doc­u­men­tary, Afghanistan Between Three Worlds, for PBS. In 1983 they returned for ABC Night­line and con­tributed to the MacNeil/Lehrer News Hour. They have con­tin­ued to research, write and lec­ture about Afghanistan his­to­ry and U.S. for­eign pol­i­cy since.
