More about Afghanistan

  • ITYPEAUTO: Overview of arts and crafts in Afghanistan. Also includes film, dance, music, and literature in this country.

Afghanistan is a republic in Central Asia with the capital Kabul , a four million metropolis. The country is shaped by the high mountains of the Hindu Kush and its foothills. In the west and south the highlands merge into steppes and deserts. Most of the rivers drain away there without any drainage. In the north the mountain ranges drop into a lowland strip to the Amu Darya. Afghanistan is in an area with frequent earthquakes. The climate is continental with hot summers and cold winters. Droughts have occurred frequently over the past three decades.

The main settlement areas are the basins and valleys surrounded by mountain ranges. Most people live in the countryside, but are increasingly moving to the cities. The population is very young, life expectancy is low and the birth rate is high. Afghanistan is a multi-ethnic state, the largest among at least 55 ethnic groups are Pashtuns and Tajiks. Islam is the state religion, most Muslims are Sunnis. Afghanistan has always been a transit country between the Middle East and India. Persian cultural influences were particularly influential; Pashto and Dari , both Iranian languages, are official languages. In 1919 Afghanistan became an independent state in which the central government, however, always had a difficult time against strong tribal traditions and particular interests.

The Soviet invasion of 1979 after a communist coup the year before set in motion a cascade of wars and civil wars. They left behind millions of refugees at home and abroad, shattered the economy, which was still heavily influenced by agriculture, and destroyed the infrastructure. An international military intervention against the radical Islamic Taliban and the al-Qaida terror network it supports (2001) made a new political start possible.

Today’s government, headed by a president, is struggling with internal conflicts and deeply rooted clientelism (corruption). She was only able to partially enforce her authority against former warlords and insurgents. Terrorist attacks, military actions with the support of foreign armed forces against the Taliban and land mines that have not been cleared pose a threat to the civilian population. International financial and development aid have promoted reconstruction in the cities. A diverse media and start-up scene has emerged, especially in Kabul. Check ask4beauty to see Travel to Central Asia.


Evidence of human culture has existed on the soil of present-day Afghanistan since the Stone Age. In ancient times, the country or parts of it belonged to empires of Persian, Indian and, thanks to Alexander the Great , also of Greek origin. In addition, peoples from regions beyond the Pamir exerted influence. Islam spread with the Arab conquests, first in the west and north (7th century), then in the south of the Hindu Kush (10th century). The dynasties of the Ghaznavids (10th / 11th centuries) and the Timurids (14th / 15th centuries, Timur ) had their centers in Ghazni and Herat.

In the shadow of the Persian-Indian rivalry, Pashtun (Afghan) tribes grew stronger in the 17th century. They conquered and unified areas from which Afghanistan emerged in the 19th century. At this time, the colonial claims of the great powers Russia and Great Britain met there (“Great Game”). The British were able to assert their influence in three Anglo-Afghan wars (from 1839). British India became the Durand Line in 1893 extended. It separated the Pashtun settlement area and today marks the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan. Under rulers from the Pashtun Barakzai / Mohammadzai tribe (from 1819) the country gained state independence in 1919 with the first constitutions in 1923 and 1931. From 1926 Afghanistan was a monarchy, between 1964 and 1973, the “Golden Age”, with constitutional dimensions. Domestic politics determined permanent conflicts between restorative and progressive forces.

After the Second World War, Afghanistan was courted by both sides in the global East-West conflict. A communist coup in 1978 and the invasion of Soviet troops in 1979 changed the situation and an epoch of wars and civil wars began that continues to this day. Afghanistan became a “frontline state” of the East-West conflict in which the US Islamic mujahedin supported -Rebellen, and from 1992 to the battlefield of warring mujahedin who had fallen before the communist government. From 1997/98, radical Islamic Taliban established a religious dictatorship. You also support the al-Qaeda terrorist network. In 2001, an international force led by the US drove out al-Qaeda and the Taliban, but did not defeat them – and terrorism. International military, financial and development aid supported the country with a new state start, economic reconstruction and social reforms.
