This was a time of peace for this afflicted country, before the introduction of Peace Corps volunteers, before the overthrow of the king in 1973, before the Soviet invasion of 1979, before the tribal civil war and subsequent takeover by the Taliban, and before the American invasion of 2001. The author reflects on his time and work there as part of the broader U.S. technical assistance effort in the period of the Cold War, told as a purely personal recollection.
