Sultan Khan supplied the people of Kābol with books in defiance of the Communist Party and the Taliban. He was imprisoned by the Communists and stood by reluctantly as the illiterate Taliban soldiers burned his books in the street. The author, Åsne Seierstad, spent four months with Khan and his family observing how his books became a symbol of freedom.
