A character-driven history that describes the bizarrely ill-suited alliance between America and Pakistan, written by a uniquely insightful participant: Pakistan s former ambassador to the US

The relationship between America and Pakistan is based on mutual incomprehension, and always has been. Pakistan to American eyes has gone from being a stabilizing friend to an essential military ally to a seedbed of terror. America to Pakistani eyes has been a guarantee of security, a coldly distant scold, an enthusiastic military supplier and ally, and now a threat to national security and a source of humiliation. In their sixty-five year relationship, one country has become a global superpower, the other perilously close to a failed state perhaps one of the most dangerous places in the world.

Husain Haqqani has a unique insight into Pakistan, his homeland, and America, where he was the Pakistani ambassador and is now a professor at Boston University. His life has mapped the relationship of Pakistan and America, and he has found himself often close to the heart of it sometimes in very confrontational circumstances, even under house arrest which has allowed him to write the story of the two countries turbulent affair, here memorably laid bare.
