    What are the possibilities—and hazards—facing America as it withdraws from Afghanistan and reviews its long engagement in Pakistan? Where is the Taliban now in both of these countries? What does the immediate future hold, and what are America’s choices going forward? These are some of the crucial questions that Ahmed Rashid—Pakistan’s preeminent journalist—takes on in this follow-up to his acclaimed Descent into Chaos.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Ahmed Rashid and/or Arthur Morey?

    Maybe. I bought this audio book based on Ahmed Rashid being interviewed on NPR. The book is strong from a US point of view but weak (in terms of real insight) from a Pakistan point of view.


    Would you recommend Pakistan on the Brink to your friends? Why or why not?

    It is worthwhile listening to this audio book if you want a very good history lesson.


    Which character – as performed by Arthur Morey – was your favorite?

    None.


    Could you see Pakistan on the Brink being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No not really. Maybe a PBS Frontline episode.
