Reviews - What do customers think about Land of the High Flags: Afghanistan When the Going Was Good?

A look inside 1950's Afghanistan.  Apr 15, 2010
I have been fascinated by Central Asia for most of my life. I came across this wonderful memoir about 15 years ago and it left me wishing I could build a time machine and visit Afghanistan before the coup d'etat and subsequent Soviet invasion.

Rosanne Klass takes us inside the strange and titillating experience of being a western woman in a simultaneously hospitable and unknowable (to an outsider, especially a woman) culture.

Well-written and captivating.
Brings Back Memories  Jul 14, 2009
I lived in Afghanistan twice, for a year in 1963 and then in Kabul for 5 years from 1968 until 1973 and knew Dr. Kayeum and Joan, his wife. This book brought back so many memories. I can hardly believe what has happened there since then.
