Descent into chaos : the United States and the failure of nation building in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Central Asia by Ahmed Rashid( Book )

40 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in 9 languages and held by 1,812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rashid examines the region and the corridors of power in Washington and Europe to see how the promised nation building in these countries has progressed. His conclusions are devastating: an unstable and nuclear-armed Pakistan, a renewed al Qaeda profiting from a booming opium trade, and a Taliban resurgence and reconquest. While Iraq continues to attract most of American media and military might, Rashid argues that Pakistan and Afghanistan are where the conflict will finally be played out and that these failing states pose a graver threat to global security than the Middle East.--From publisher description
Pakistan on the brink : the future of America, Pakistan, and Afghanistan by Ahmed Rashid( Book )

23 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Dutch and held by 1,331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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"--Publisher description

Afghanistan : a distant war by Robert Nickelsberg( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noted documentary photographer Robert Nickelsberg's photographs help bring into focus the day-to-day consequences of war, poverty, oppression, and political turmoil in Afghanistan. Since the attack on the World Trade Center, Afghanistan has evolved from a country few people thought twice about to a place that evokes our deepest emotions. TIME magazine photographer Robert Nickelsberg has been publishing his images of this distant yet all too familiar country since 1998, when he accompanied a group of Mujahideen across the border from Pakistan. This remarkable volume of photographs is accompanied by insightful texts from experts on Afghanistan and the Taliban. The images themselves are captioned with places, dates, and Nickelsberg's own extensive commentary. Timely and important, the book serves as a reminder that Afghanistan and the rest of the world remain inextricably linked, no matter how much we long to distance ourselves from its painful realities
