A series of coups in the 1970s was followed by a series of civil wars that devastated much of Afghanistan and continues to this day.
The name Afghānistān (Pashto |افغانستان) is believed to be as old as the ethnonym Afghan, which is documented in the 10th-century geography book Hudud ul-'alam.
The root name "Afghan" was used historically in reference to a member of the ethnic Pashtuns, and the suffix "-stan" means "place of" in Persian.
Therefore, Afghanistan translates to land of the Afghans or, more specifically in a historical sense, to land of the Pashtuns.
The political history of the modern state of Afghanistan began with the Hotak and Durrani dynasties in the 18th century.
