How did a nation founded as a homeland for South Asian Muslims, most of whom follow a tolerant nonthreatening form of Islam, become a haven for Al Qaeda and a rogue's gallery of domestic jihadist and sectarian groups? In this groundbreaking history of Pakistan's involvement with radical Islam, John R. Schmidt, the senior U.S political analyst in Pakistan in the years before 9/11, places the blame squarely on the rulers of the country, who thought they could use Islamic radicals to advance their foreign policy goals without having to pay a steep price. This strategy worked well at first--in Afghanistan during the anti-Soviet jihad, in Kashmir in support of a local uprising against Indian rule, and again in Afghanistan in backing the Taliban in the Afghan civil war. But the government's plans would begin to unravel in the wake of 9/11, when the rulers' support for the U.S. war on terror caused many of their jihadist allies to turn against them. Today the army generals and feudal politicians who run Pakistan are by turns fearful of the consequences of going after these groups and hopeful that they can still be used to advance the state's interests. The Unraveling is the clearest account yet of the complex, dangerous relationship between the leaders of Pakistan and jihadist groups—and how the rulers' decisions have led their nation to the brink of disaster and put other nations at great risk. Can they save their country or will we one day find ourselves confronting the first nuclear-armed jihadist state?

Newspaper librarian Maddy Sprowls never gives story ideas to the editors at The Hannawa Herald-Union.

Maddy wants no part of the investigation, but before she knows it, she's on another of her infamous snoopathons. And, good gravy, enjoying every minute of it. Violeta Bell is an enigma.

The Unraveling Strangeness

The Unraveling Strangeness

Author: Bruce Weigl

Publisher: Grove Press

ISBN: 0802139388

Category: Poetry

Page: 82

View: 177

Bruce Weigl's poetry has been acclaimed by C. K. Williams as "powerful and frightening, poems [that] force us to repudiate our comfortable uncertainties, our drowsy vagueness," and Carolyn Forche has said that Bruce Weigl "is one of the most important poets of our time." With Song of Napalm and followed by Archeology of the Circle, Weigl has established himself as a poet of incomparable power and lyric fury. For Weigl, home is where the heart is and where the soul must reside. To leave one's home is to leave a vital part of oneself behind, and to return is to reconnect with one's history. The Unraveling Strangeness represents the record of a man in the middle of his life who comes back to his home after being away for twenty-five years. In these poems we find odes to New York City neighborhood life -- live from the front stoop. Poems such as "Hinckley and Nixon" point to a larger national turmoil that seeps its way into the consciousness of the mean streets of New York. Weigl closes with poems penned by a world-weary eye that extends childlike tribute to the wonders of the country. At stake in this journey is a rediscovery of deep and abiding connections to place, to family, and to old friends. Reginald Gibbons has raved that Bruce Weigl's poetry contains "a largeness of spirit that is filled with both hard memories and forgiveness."
