Book review:”To Live Or To Perish Forever: Two Tumultuous Years in Pakistan” By Nicholas Schmidle

A Pakistani blogger’s review of “To Live Or To Perish Forever: Two Tumultuous Years in Pakistan” by Nicholas Schmidle (published recently) caught my eye. I was struck by the fact that Schmidle chose to begin his book with Shia-Sunni sectarian strife in Karachi (see the free excerpt on Amazon.com). I haven’t read the book yet though.

You can listen to the author talking about his book here, and watch him giving a seminar at the Wilson Centre here. The Wilson Centre interview is particularly interesting as it makes his (significant and numerous) misunderstandings clear. Another lengthy book review is here.
