New essay collection available for free
The Future of Afghanistan, a new U.S. Institute of Peace (USIP) collection of essays written by some of the world's top South Asia analysts, is “the most comprehensible and comprehensive account of what (went) wrong in Afghanistan and what we need to do to correct it,” according to Ahmed Rashid, best-selling author of Descent into Chaos: the Unites States and the Failure of Nation Building in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Central Asia. “This volume examines a vital question—the future of Afghanistan and its region—that must be addressed by the international community and the Obama team in particular."
