Présentation de l'éditeur

The longest war the United States has ever fought is the ongoing war in Afghanistan. But when we speak of "Afghanistan," we really mean a conflict that straddles the border with Pakistan--and the reality of Islamic militancy on that border is enormously complicated.
In Talibanistan, an unparalleled group of experts offer a nuanced understanding of this critical region. Edited by Peter Bergen, author of the bestselling books The Longest War and The Osama Bin Laden I Know, and Katherine Tiedemann, these essays examine in detail the embattled territory from Kandahar in Afghanistan to Pakistan's Northwest Frontier Province and Federally Administered Tribal Areas. They pull apart the distinctions between the Taliban and al Qaeda--and the fractures within each movement; assess the effectiveness of American and Pakistani counterinsurgency campaigns; and explore the pipeline of militants into and out of the war zone. Throughout, these scrupulously researched studies challenge convenient orthodoxies. Counterterrorism expert Brian Fishman criticizes the customary distinction between an Afghan and Pakistani Taliban as being too neat to describe their fragmented reality. Hassan Abbas paints a subtle portrait of the political and religious forces shaping the insurgency in the Northwest Frontier Province, uncovering poor governance, economic distress, and resentment of foreign troops in nearby Afghanistan. And Peter Bergen and Katherine Tiedemann try to identify the real numbers of drone strikes and victims, both militants and civilians, while disputing claims for their strategic effectiveness.
These and other essays provide profound new insight into this troubled region. They are required reading for anyone seeking a fresh understanding of a central strategic challenge facing the United States today.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Rigorous coverage of an elusive subject 16 mars 2013
Par Saleem Ali - Publié sur Amazon.com
Studying the Taliban as an academic researcher is exceedingly challenging. Inevitably one must rely on anecdotal information from shady sources and even when primary interviews are granted, it is hard to differentiate reality from propaganda on the part of the interviewees. With these limitations in mind Peter Bergen and Katherine Tiedeman have assembled a definitive anthology on this most elusive and yet virulent assemblage of Islamic fanaticism. Relying on a range of authors from local journalists in Pakistan's tribal belt to MIT doctoral students, the editors have combed through a very high level of detailed information. Where possible, survey data and NGO field information is triangulated to offer the most rigorous compilation to date on the topic. Unlike earlier books such as Ahmad Rashid's celebrated classic on The Taliban which focus on the historical rise of the movement, this volume goes into detailed descriptions of the factions, rifts and alliances of the Taliban that continue to shift.

Given the highly dynamic situation, some of the material is perhaps not quite up-to-date such as the chapter on the Swat Taliban. Contrary to the chapter author's assertions, development indicators of the valley and the reinvestment has improved considerably since the Taliban were evicted from the region. Also, the recent trial of Bin Laden's son-in-law Abu Ghaith (March 2013) revealed Al Qaeda's connections to Iran which are also not adequately covered in this volume (particularly with reference to the Sunni-Shia divide and the Jundallah movement within Iran's Baloch region). The peace process with the Taliban also could have been presented with some more clear parameters for negotiation such as the potential for a return to draconian laws on capital punishment and prohibition of education of women. Territorial aspects of a peace plan and options for varying degrees of federalism in regions under Taliban control could also have been discussed as part of the negotiation process.

Nevertheless, despite these minor deficiencies, this book is a monumental achievement and should be read with care by all international power-brokers in the region. It should also find its way into postgraduate political science readings in Afghan and Pakistani universities. The shifting sands of a "student movement" (Taliban means students in Arabic) that has subverted Islamic learning in a perfidious way needs to be understood by students in Muslim countries through such volumes which offer a dispassionate and objective analysis of the region's predicament.

Review – Talibanistan by Peter Bergen

“Talibanistan” is an accounting of the peoples and places of the Taliban in Afghanistan as of 2011 with only necessary references into the Pakistani Taliban as of 2011. The book is amazing in the detail and naming of names and locations of many of the Taliban leaders. Peter Bergen does give a disclaimer that only those names and places known to the Western Allies and Afghanistan are listed. Others may be referred to, but not with detail to identify them. But the known list is very lengthy.

The book is horrifying in its accounting of the civil right abuses and outright military overreach of both the Kasai Government and the western militaries. These are presented in quoted interviews. In fact the book point blank states that abuses and overreaching by the Kasai Government and the western military, such as home invasions, confiscation, and imprisonment are the reasons for many of the Taliban from their first Taliban Surge, returning in the Taliban Resurgence.

Unless the reader has detailed knowledge of the geography and history of Afghanistan, the book is hard to read. Otherwise the book is well written and quite readable.

The histories, policies and strategies of the Taliban are only briefly discussed. This is mostly an accounting of the people of the Taliban in 2011, how they came back into the movement, and who is talking with whom. As such it is fascinating, but rapidly becoming dated.

This book should be required reading for all political and military leaders as well as troops on the ground involved in the war in Afghanistan. The situation on the ground is far more complex than we were led to believe. In fact, I venture to say that had our leaders read this book when we first went into Afghanistan on October 7, 2001, we wouldn't still be there. The situation is too dynamic and complex for the strategy that we and our NATO allies have employed. A MUST READ!
