"Afghanistan in Ink: Literature Between Diaspora and Nation." Nile Green and Nushin Arbabzadah. C Hurst & Co Publishers. February 2013. --- Afghanistan In Ink uses a wide and largely unknown corpus of twentieth century Afghan Dari and Pashto literature to show not only how Afghans have reflected on their modern history, but also how the state has repeatedly sought to dominate the ideological contours of that history through the patronage or exile of writers. Emily Coolidge-Toker is extremely impressed with the essays collected here, and recommends the book to students of culture, politics, and linguistics.
