A Journey Through Turbulence is a collection of Deepak Tripathi's writings in the last decade, covering a vast landscape and many subjects, from the United States, Britain and the European Union to conflicts in South Asia and the Middle East, the Arab Awakening, the power shift from west to east, and the new great game in the east. Displaying a keen knowledge of the landscape, these essays have an insightful analysis of the present in the context of the past.
Dr. Deepak Tripathi, fellow of the Royal Historical Society, is a British historian of the Middle East and South Asia with a particular emphasis on the Cold War and the United States in the post-Soviet world. He is an honorary research fellow in social sciences at the University of Roehampton in London. Among his books is a trilogy including Breeding Ground: Afghanistan and the Origins of Islamist Terrorism (2011), Overcoming the Bush Legacy in Iraq and Afghanistan (2010), and Imperial Designs: War, Humiliation and the Making of History (2013), published by Potomac Books, Inc., Washington, D.C.
In his long career as a journalist before the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States, Deepak Tripathi lived and worked in the United States and Britain, and reported from Afghanistan, Syria, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and India. Turning to his current research interest in great power rivalries and conflicts in the Middle East and South Asia, he has since published several books, and more than a hundred and fifty articles. His columns have appeared in numerous journals and periodicals, including CounterPunch, History News Network of George Mason University, Al-Ahram Weekly, Al Jazeera English, Palestine Chronicle, Mondoweiss, and the Nation of Pakistan.
"Tripathi writes with a degree of bite on the important issues of our times, covering the end of the Bush era to the start of Barack Obama's second term. These essays provide a searing commentary of U.S. foreign policy, and its failings from Iraq to Libya."
