'This is the autobiography of Abdul Salam Zaeef, a senior former member of the Taliban. His memoirs, translated from Pashto,are more than just the story of his extraordinary life: they offer a challenging counter-narrative to the standard accounts of Afganistan since 1979.
My Life with the Taliban offers a personal and privileged insight into the rural Pashtun village communities that are the Taliban's bedrock and helps to explain what drives men like Zaeef to take up arms against the foreigners who are foolish enough to invade their homeland.'
