Where the Wild Frontiers Are
Pakistan and the American ImaginationeBook - 2016
Since 2004 Manan Ahmed, a deeply informed Pakistani-American historian, has been casting his keen and always wry eye on the U.S.-Pakistani interaction on his blog, Chapati Mystery. Where the Wild Frontiers Are is a collection of his blogged essays-a work that will forever change the way its American readers think about Pakistan. The book captures the failure of most members of the U.S. elite to successfully "imagine" the reality of people's lives and society in Pakistan. In it, Ahmed unsparingly criticizes most of the so-called "experts" who prognosticate about Pakistan and its region in the U.S. mainstream media. --Provided by publisher.
