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)
