Looking for the enemy : Mullah Omar and the unknown Taliban by Bette Dam( Book )

4 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For twenty years, the Taliban was the number one enemy of Western forces in Afghanistan. But it was an enemy that they knew little about, and about whose founder and leader, Mullah Omar, they knew even less. Armed with only a fuzzy black-and-white photo of the man, investigative journalist Bette Dam decided to track down the reclusive Taliban chief a decade back. But in the course of what had seemed an almost impossible job, she got to know the Taliban inside out, realized how dangerously misinformed the global forces fighting it were, and made a startling discovery about the elusive Omar's whereabouts. The outcome of a five-year-long pursuit, Looking for the Enemy is a woman journalist's epic story that takes the reader deep into the dangerous mountains and war-ravaged valleys of Afghanistan as it throws up several unknowns about an organization that is now once again at the helm in one of the world's most fragile states"--Publisher's description

The secret life of Mullah Omar by Bette Dam( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mullah Omar's story should serve as a warning for those who seek to impose simple narratives on the complex realities of Afghanistan. For a long time, the Taliban was one of the world's most inscrutable insurgent groups, in large part due to the movement's own obscurantism. Today, for the first time in nearly two decades, the prospect of peace is on the table. If the U.S. finally begins withdrawing and a negotiated settlement is to succeed, bringing to light such hidden stories of this war will be essential

Le dernier Calife d'Afghanistan : A la recherche du Mollah Omar by Claire Billet( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Le mollah Omar, chef des talibans afghans, est l'un des hommes les plus controversés et les plus énigmatiques de la planète. Après dix ans d'occupation militaire et malgré tous les moyens mis en œuvre pour le localiser, on ne sait toujours rien sur lui. Est-il un redoutable islamiste ? A-t-il été stigmatisé afin de justifier une intervention armée en Afghanistan ? Est-ce un simple homme de paille dépassé par les évènements ?... Une équipe composée de trois femmes journalistes a parcouru l'Afghanistan dans ses moindres recoins pour retrouver la trace de l'homme le plus recherché au monde. [source : ADAV]
