The Afghan-Soviet War could be called an "invisible war," since it is largely unnoticed in the West. Yet more than five million Afghans are refugees, and estimates of the dead range from one to two million. Here two principals of the Mo Tzu Project, a citizens diplomacy endeavor, who have recently visited the Afghan refugee camps on the Afghan-Pakistani border, report the facts as they have observed them. What emerges is an astounding story of chaos and courage, which may offer a unique opportunity for bringing the superpowers closer together. (hosted by Michael Toms)
Robert Fuller, Ph.D. is a physicist and former president of Oberlin College. He has consulted with Indira Gandhi, met with Jimmy Carter regarding the President's Commission on World Hunger, and worked to defuse the Cold War in Russia when it was known as the USSR. As Fuller reflected on his career he realized that he had been, at different times in his life, a somebody and a nobody. His periodic sojourns into “Nobodyland” led him to identify rankism - the abuse of the power inherent in rank - and ultimately to write the book Somebodies and Nobodies: Overcoming the Abuse of Rank.

His many other accomplishments include co-authoring the text book Mathematics of Classical and Quantum Physics.
