New From the CWIHP Working Paper Series
The Blind Leading the Blind: Soviet Advisors, Counter-Insurgency and Nation-Building in Afghanistan A New CWIHP Working Paper by Artemy Kalinovsky
CWIHP is pleased to announce the publication of the latest addition to the CWIHP Working Paper Series: Working Paper #60: The Blind Leading the Blind: Soviet Advisors, Counter-Insurgency and Nation-Building in Afghanistan by Artemy Kalinovsky.
The Soviet involvement in Afghanistan, like most counter-insurgencies, consisted not only of military operations but also of a massive nation-building project. Moscow sent thousands of advisers to build up the People's Democratic Party of Afghanistan (PDPA), organize and improve government institutions, and help carry out pacification measures. Kalinovsky's paper analyzes this aspect of Moscow's counter-insurgency efforts, and argues that Soviet nation-building efforts in Afghanistan were marred by institutional rivalries, poor understanding of local conditions, and lack of coordination.
Artemy Kalinovsky is a Pinto post-doctoral fellow at the Centre for Diplomacy and Strategy at the London School of Economics (LSE IDEAS). He has a Ph.D. and an MA from the LSE in International History and a BA from the George Washington University. Kalinovsky's publications include "Soviet Decision-making during the War in Afghanistan, from Intervention to Withdrawal," published in the Journal of Cold War Studies (Fall 2009) and "Politics, Diplomacy and the Soviet Withdrawal from Afghanistan: From National Reconciliation to the Geneva Accords," in Cold War History August 2008). Additionally Kalinovsky has written for Foreign Policy, National Journal, and Neoamericanist. He is currently working on a history of Soviet advising in the Third World and a study of the effects of the Afghan War on Central Asia and the Caucasus.
...von daher werde ich das nach den Parteitagen nochmal einarbeiten und den Vortrag umstellen. Max WeberII 07:44, 7. Feb. 2010 (CET)
