Summary
From the complete coverage of chadaris to mini-skirts, and back again. From ancient carpet designs to woven depictions of tanks and Kalashnikovs. From photographs of unveiled women to an image of horror--the execution of a kneeling woman known as Zaremeena, videoed covertly by one of the few watching women. This remarkable book provides a history of Afghanistan through the visual. The Kabul Stadium looms large because it was there, one afternoon in August 1959, that women first appeared in western dress at a celebration of Afghanistan's independence--a turning point, not only for women in Afghanistan's cities but also for the country itself, symbolising its embrace of the modern. It was also there, one afternoon in November 1999, that the Taliban killed Zarmeena. Two Afternoons in the Kabul Stadium offers both a new way of seeing Afghanistan and a new way of understanding it
