This book is in Pashto. The textbooks included violent imagery, both in the text and the illustrations, promoting jihad against the Soviet invaders who occupied Afghanistan at that time. The Center for Afghanistan Studies and USAID both assert that the content of the textbooks was provided by the Afghan mujahideen resistance groups, not by CAS or USAID. Although official printing of the textbooks with the violent imagery ceased circa 1989-1992, old copies and unauthorized reprints continued to circulate in Afghanistan. This book was identified to Archives and Special Collections staff by a researcher as being one of the textbooks containing violent imagery Cataloged from English-language sticker affixed to cover by the UNO Center for Afghanistan Studies. Requires full cataloging by a cataloger with Pashto language expertise. Published in Solar Hijri year 1372.
