“[…] failed American attempts to reform Afghanistan -and ally it with the United States- in the 1950s and 1960s. The centerpiece of the nation-building effort was an ambitious project to construct dams and canals and irrigate desert for agricultural use. The attempt to impose American technological know-how on the different terrain and culture of Afghanistan resulted in sustained environmental damage, undermined the local pastoral economy and elicited resistance from both nomads and the farmers who inhabited the region.”

Joanne Jay Meyerowitz, History and September 11th, J. Meyerowitz (ed.), Temple University Press, Philadelphia, 2003, p.  4.
