Synopsis

Based on the author's own conversations with President Karzai and other Afghan politicians, as well as prominent international representatives, "Power Struggle Over Afghanistan" is a Norwegian diplomat's account of his two years at the United Nations. Eide was President Karzai's closest international interlocutor from March 2008-2010 and he interacted with him regularly during the most hectic periods. It was a time marred by widespread fraud, including the controversial presidential elections, and gross international interference, much of which is still unknown to the general public. Working closely with Karzai, Eide was inevitably caught up in the rivalries between the Afghani authorities and the international community, as well as in the tensions generated by the security situation. Eide speaks freely and honestly about the political gambles, the military reality, and the people he met. His story is a unique account of contemporary Afghanistan, and its critique of military and civilian operations in Afghanistan will without doubt prove controversial. This title features 24 full-color photographs.

A Norwegian politician and diplomat, Kai Eide was the United Nations special representative to Afghanistan from March 2008 to March 2010. He has held several international posts: he previously served as the special envoy of the United Nations secretary-general in Kosovo in 2005 and as special representative of the secretary-general in Bosnia and Herzegovina from 1997 to 1998. A member of the Norwegian Foreign Service since 1975, he was the Norwegian ambassador to NATO from 2002 to 2006.
