  Resolved Question: Historical background of
I just finished reading Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseni. I have to say that it's one of the greatest books I ever read in my life. Anyway, while I was reading the book, I have some trouble understanding the political and historical background of the book. The book mentions how Baba (protagonist's father) hates the Russian. Also, the book talks about the suppressed regime of Taliban and the massacre of Hazara people. Are Russian and Taliban two rival factions during the late 80's and early 90's? Are they both corrupted? Why is a massacre, which happens to be something I had never even heard about in my world history class? Why did the Afghans fleet to Pakistan? Didn't Pakistan have some territorial conflicts with India (which is something I did learn in my history class)? I know I sound ignorant for not knowing what was going. So, please give me some historical background of Afghanistan in the time the book took place. Also, I'll appreciate it if you can condense the materials instead of posting a textbook for me to read!
