A review of the book “Zone Of Crisis: Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran And Iraq”

How much do you know about these four countries? You know that they are constantly in the news headlines and are deeply troubled states. but what are the root causes of these troubles and how well have local leaders and the international community tackled the issues?

Amin Saikal is an Afghan-born scholar of international affairs who has written an accessible and thoughtful book examining each of these four states. You may not read the book, but you can at least read my review of it here.
