I will be participating in a discussion with Ahmed Rashid, whose new book is entitled Pakistan on the Brink: The Future of America, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, at Fordham University on Wednesday, April 4, at 12:30 P.M.
Rashid’s most recent work explores the challenges facing Pakistan and Afghanistan in a post–Bin Laden era, as well as the long-term implications of the recent deterioration of U.S.–Pakistan relations. Rashid’s 2000 book, Taliban: Militant Islam, Oil and Fundamentalism in Central Asia, was a New York Times bestseller translated into twenty-two languages.
Harper’s Magazine readers are welcome to attend, but seating is limited and requires pre-registration.
Location: Fordham Law School, 140 West 62nd Street, Room 430 B/C
Time: Wednesday, April 4, 12:30 P.M.
Register by sending an email with your name and the name of the event to firstname.lastname@example.org.
