Great Game Redux in Highly Unstable Region
Karl Meyer rightly reminds his audience about the importance of history. Whoever lives in a perpetual present will burn his own fingers in dealing with countries such as Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Meyers has written highly readable and illuminating vignettes on these countries, which belong to what he calls the Asian heartland. This region is a theater of confrontation between liberalism and despotism. Russia, China, and the U.S. vie with each other for preeminence in a region often rich in natural resources but usually poor in liberal traditions.
