The Blind Leading the Blind: Soviet Advisors, Counter-Insurgency and Nation-Building in Afghanistanhttp://www.wilsoncenter.org/topics/pubs/WP60_Web_Final.pdf A New CWIHP Working Paper by Artemy Kalinovsky CWIHP is pleased to announce the publication of the latest addition to the CWIHP Working Paper Series: Working Paper #60: The Blind Leading the Blind: Soviet Advisors, Counter-Insurgency and Nation-Building in Afghanistan by Artemy Kalinovsky. The Soviet involvement in Afghanistan, like most counter-insurgencies, consisted not only of military operations but also of a massive nation-building project. Moscow sent thousands of advisers to build up the People's Democratic Party of Afghanistan (PDPA), organize and improve government institutions, and help carry out pacification measures. Kalinovsky's paper analyzes this aspect of Moscow's counter-insurgency efforts, and argues that Soviet nation-building efforts in Afghanistan were marred by institutional rivalries, poor understanding of local conditions, and lack of coordination.
