Kabul Under Siege: Fayz Muhammad's Account of the 1929 Uprising
Markus Wiener Publishers, 1999 - 308 pagina's
In January 1929, the reigning monarch of Afghanistan, Amir Aman Allah Khan, was driven from his capital by a former soldier turned outlaw. The uprising was a response to the ruler's attempts to modernize the tribal culture of Afghanistan. Kabul was of considerable symbolic importance, and its loss sounded the death knell to the king's power and his reforms. This is an account of the nine-month rule of the outlaw-king, Habib Allah, nicknamed "Son of the Watercarrier," from inside the capital.
