Product description


Llewelyn Morgan's exquisite storytelling brought me back to the "peaceful valley" and the magnificent Buddhas of Bamiyan. Written with great authority and affection, this entrancing book ensures their rich history and meaning will not be lost. (Lyse Doucet, BBC Special Correspondent)

the latest addition to Profile's brilliant Wonders of the World series ...tells the fascinating story of these figures ... He begins with their ignominious end and recounts western responses to them, their construction and the wealth and importance of Bamiyan to have been able to create such structures. (Financial Times)

I was also much moved by Llewelyn Morgan's brilliant The Buddhas of Bamiyan: a history of the two colossal statues destroyed by the Taliban. Scholarly and even-handed, it is simultaneously heart-rending. (Tom Holland, books of the year Telegraph)

Book Description

How these ancient wonders of the world were destroyed by the Taliban - and what their story reveals about the fascinating history of Afghanistan, now in paperback
