Bonus - The History of Afghanistan, Ep. 9 w/ Tim Nunan
A podcast from Daniel Bessner and Derek Davison that provides listeners with everything they need to know about what’s going on in the world.
Danny and Derek welcome back Tim Nunan, lecturer in global history at the Free University of Berlin, for the final narrative episode on Afghanistan's history. The discussion covers the Trump administration’s policy toward Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, the Doha Agreement, the Taliban-Al-Qaeda relationship in the era of the so-called Islamic State (IS), the role of independent contractors in Afghanistan, and the 2021 US withdrawal.
We will conclude the series with a panel episode taking a macro perspective of the country, its historiography, and more. You can find the other episodes of the series here.
