Afghanistan is the topic of this months discussion with Frank Holt, Professor of History at the University of Houston, and the author of Into The Land of Bones: Alexander The Great in Afghanistan.

Holt is one of the worlds leading authorities on Alexander. The History Channel has featured his research and he is cited frequently by National Geographic, Smithsonian, and BBC Current Affairs.

In his book, Holt explains how three modern superpowers, Britain in the 19th century, the Soviet Union in the 20th century, and the United States today, continue the struggle begun by Alexander more than 2,300 years ago.
