  • A State Built on Sand: How Opium Undermined Afghanistan
  • Dr David Mansfield (Senior Visiting Fellow LSE IDEAS and Independent Consultant)
  • In this year's Anthony Hyman Memorial Lecture Dr David Mansfield challenges the way we have come to understand political power in rural Afghanistan. Far from being the passive recipients of acts of violence by state and non state actors, this book highlights the role that rural communities in Afghanistan have played in shaping the political terrain, including establishing the conditions under which they could persist with opium production.
