To live or die in Pakistan

June 1st, 2009

If Pakistan is the central front in the war on terror, why don't we know more about it? For years we have read and listened to reporting from Iraq and Afghanistan, but arguably not enough about Pakistan;  a country with nuclear weapons, an unstable government and a military with questionable allegiances. Nicholas Schmidle, an accomplished journalist, spent two years studying and reporting from Pakistan and understands the reality on the ground as few others do. In his new book To Live or to Perish Forever: Two Tumultuous Years in Pakistan, Nick Schmidle takes us inside his two years in a nation always on the bring of chaos.
