In 2001, US and NATO troops were deployed to Afghanistan to unseat the Taliban rulers. This book examines how the Taliban not only survived but adapted to their situation in order to regain power and political advantage. It also analyzes the Taliban's support base within Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas.
