Publisher's Summary

In 1971, the Pakistani government orchestrated a brutal military crackdown against the Bengali population in East Pakistan - while the United States stuck by its ally Pakistan. Gary Bass' new book spotlights the "significant complicity" of U.S. President Richard Nixon and his national security adviser, Henry Kissinger, in this "forgotten genocide".

Too Brief

It is too brief to explain anything meaningful. This was a big historical event but wrapping in the 24 minutes will never give the whole picture and will confuse the listeners.

Worth while listen.

Certainly worth a listen about a fascinating subject that most people would probably know little about.
It could be argued that it should have been a bit longer, giving more 'flesh to the bones' on such topic.
