Once again, this explanation relies heavily on the concept of an internal cultural
dynamic rather than on the international dimensions of wars fought on Afghan
soil, most particularly the policy of Pakistan and the United States to 'kee[p]
Afghanistan weak and divided' by switching their support between opposing
military and political factions (Rubin and Benjamin 2000: 2). The deployment of a
carpet metaphor throughout Kremmer's travel account suggests that his narrative

The lime green barber carpet spread itself over the floor with a few major wrinkles
and did seem to touch the quarter round along the wall in a few places. The red,
or whatever color, stain seemed to predominate in the walk areas between the
doors, and the sick green held its own along the walls if there was carpet there. In
the middle ground, it was anyone's guess as to which predominated. As to the
edges of the carpet, Beauregard's apartment floor plan didn't match that of the ...

They weren't up to the task—of course they weren't. People were hungry again,
and plagues were raging whose names had been forgotten for millennia.
Everywhere was turmoil; in many places, bloody wars were being fought, and
everything was going to the dogs. They were slitting open the belly of the Empire,
gutting it with its heart still beating, and shredding it into raw tatters of flesh. And
all the while they thought they were so important, and they invoked the word

The impressive display in Robert Opie's Museum of Advertising and Packaging,
now in Notting Hill, tracks the way in which trends in advertising and historical
events are reflected through board games and jigsaws based on the days of

Book. Dress-the-doll books have a surprisingly long history. (Opie saves these
ephemera with a ...

mutual wants. It disposes them to peace by establishing in every state an order of
citizens bound by their interest to be the guardians of public tranquillity. As soon

society, we discern a new genius in its policy, its alliances, its wars, and its
negotiations. — Robertson. It is the great advantage of a trading nation that there

The boy rummaged under some bedding and pulled out a small rolled-up piece
of carpet. He spread it out on the ground between them. And withdrew to a corner
, whimpering. “He's terrified and saw the camels getting slaughtered,” she told
him, her voice hard with anger. The beauty of the carpet drew a blanket of calm
over them however; even Hassan found some solace in edging nearer to look.
The carpet depicted a colourful map of Yemen. A golden orb (or a droplet of
