The writer provides amazing details about the machinations of Pakistani intelligence and military. It is also a balanced analysis of what went wrong with Pakistan. I haven't seen so much details in any other book about the performance of Musharraf vis-a-vis the war on terror. Highly recommended.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is certainly a classic investigative research work in its field. It exposes the religious extremist groups and their nexus with Pakistani military and intelligence. It also unearths how short-sighted American policies played a role in creating the crisis we are witnessing in the Muslim world, especially in South Asia today. Book's treatment of US-Pakistan relations is also balanced and fair. A must read for those interested in understanding the foundations of authoritarianism and Islamic radicalism in Pakistan/South Asia.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Fabulous book. Well written in any easy to read style. I enjoyed it tremendously and it solved many mysteries such as death of Zia, and details on incursion in to Kargil by Pakistan.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
