Afghanistan and the US, 1945-1963: Records of US StateDepartment Classified Files

Afghanistan’s history, internal political development, foreign relations, and very existence as an independent state have largely been determined by itsgeographic location at the crossroads of Central, West, and South Asia. Over the centuries, waves of migrating peoples passed through the region–described as a “roundabout of the ancient world,” by historian Arnold Toynbee–leaving behind a mosaic of ethnic and linguistic groups. This collectionprovides an opportunity to peer into the mountains, valleys, villages, and cities that is called Afghanistan.
