This work is filled with remarkable scholarship, covering nearly 2,500 years and drawing from a vast number of sources. Raymond Todd handles the names of the many nationalities, locations, and individuals well. Generally, his strong tenor voice is pleasant, but at times his reading is stilted, a quality that may actually have more to do with the prose. The story of Afghanistan is more interesting than most would realize. Its geographic location has placed it at the center of various empires and given it longstanding geopolitical significance.
