Summary
"What are the possibilities--and hazards--facing America as it withdraws from Afghanistan and as it reviews its long engagement in Pakistan? Where is the Taliban now? What does the immediate future hold and what are America's choices? These are some of the crucial questions that Ahmed Rashid--Pakistan's preeminent journalist--takes on here. Rashid correctly predicted that the Iraq war would have to be refocused into Afghanistan and that Pakistan would emerge as the leading player through which American interests and actions would have to be directed. He focuses on the long-term problems--the changing casts of characters, the future of international terrorism, and the actual policies and strategies both within Pakistan and Afghanistan and among the Western allies--as the world tries to bring some stability to a fractured region saddled with a legacy of violence and corruption. The decisions made by America and the West will affect the security and safety of the world"--From publisher description
