PAKISTAN: In the Shadow of Jihad and Afghanistan

Mary Anne Weaver, Author, Mary Anne Weaver, Afterword by . Farrar, Straus & Giroux $24 (304p) ISBN 978-0-374-22894-1

"The accumulation of disorder in Pakistan is such that it could well be the next Yugoslavia," writes New Yorker correspondent Weaver (Portrait of Egypt: A Journey Through the World of Militant Islam). She portrays a country mired in chaos and decay, speculating on whether Musharraf can win his war against the Islamic extremists and offering a portrait of a general she finds enigmatic. Weaver predicts disaster, not only for Pakistan but for the U.S., if he fails in his battle. Agent, Heather Schroder, ICM. (Oct.)
