A recently published book by the Kakar History Foundation and Heart of Asia Society titled “In Search of Peace for Afghanistan: Historical Letters of President Najibullah and Dr. M. Hassan Kakar — A Collection of Essays.” This essay collection considers the correspondence between the former Afghan president and one of the country's leading scholars regarding Afghanistan's post-Soviet future and the lessons that can be drawn as the country navigates the U.S. troop withdrawal. 

 

On May 26, USIP and the book's publishers hosted a discussion with several of the contributing authors, both Afghan and American, for reflections on Afghan politics and the country's relationship with the international community as U.S. troops withdraw.
