The Buddhas of Bamiyan


Today’s Between the Covers podcast is with Llewelyn Morgan, author of The Buddhas of Bamiyan. We discuss why the Taliban demolished these massive pieces of art, what role al Qaeda may have played in their destruction, and whether other antiquities in Muslim lands, such as the Sphinx in Egypt, face a threat from Islamic radicals.
