About the Author

Ahmed Rashid is a journalist who has been covering Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Central Asia for more than twenty years. He is a correspondent for the "Wall Street Journal," "Far Eastern Economic Review," "Daily Telegraph," and "The Nation," a leading newspaper in Pakistan. His #1 "New York Times" bestseller "Taliban" has been translated into more than twenty languages.


"[Rashid] literally wrote the book on the Taliban and now has added a superb work on the future of Pakistan." "The Washington Post" "Insightful . . . Readers will welcome this insider s lucid, expert account of a disaster in the making." "Kirkus Reviews" ""Pakistan on the Brink" is a page turner. Through Ahmed Rashid's eloquent, incisive, objective, and fact-based descriptions of events and blunders repeatedly committed by the Afghan, Pakistani, and American establishments, the reader gets a great understanding of the genesis of the quagmire for which President Obama has coined the phrase AfPak." "Louisville Courier-Journal" Praise for" Descent into Chaos" "Powerful." Wolf Blitzer "A clear-headed, sobering look at a country whose ties with the U.S. are becoming ever more frayed." Publishers Weekly Rashid, a Pakistani journalist, is that most valuable of political analysts: both insider and outsider to the problems he studies. His book should be read by anyone pondering how America might stop widening Osama bin Laden s pool of bomb-clad volunteers. Chicago Tribune Rashid s book should be required reading for both presidential candidates, and anyone who wants to understand the jihadi problem. The Philadelphia Inquirer "Ahmed Rashid's latest work provides essential insights for anyone who hopes to understand what's going on in Central Asia and the alternative futures that stretch out before it." "Pittsburgh Post-Gazette" "A clear-headed, sobering look at a country whose ties with the U.S. are becoming ever more frayed." "Publishers Weekly" (starred review) Excellent Nobody tells the story of Musharaff s duplicity better than Rashid. Time Ahmed Rashid has over the decades turned out to be something of a prophet in the region [and] his fourth book [is] a caustic compendium of the mistakes by the Bush administration and, by extension, its regional allies, in tackling Islamic militancy. International Herald Tribune"
