"To understand the mess we're getting into in Pakistan's lawless tribal areas, there's no better book out there." -Robert Baer, bestselling author of See No Evil

The tribal region bordering Afghanistan, known as FATA (Federally Administered Tribal Area), has always been only loosely under government control. But since 2001 it has become a hornet's nest of violent extremists, many of whom have turned against their own state. In this groundbreaking book based on accounts by high-level Pakistani intelligence and military operatives and extensive firsthand reporting in villages where no American would be safe, award-winning reporter and broadcaster Imtiaz Gul chronicles his country's alarming slide into militancy. The United States is mired at great expense in Afghanistan, but Pakistan poses a far greater threat to American interests and to global security.
