To Live or to Perish Forever
Two Tumultuous Years in PakistanBook - 2009
Freelance journalist Nicholas Schmidle takes readers to Pakistan's rioting streets, to Taliban camps in the North-West Frontier Province, and on many surprising adventures as he provides a contemporary history of this country long riven by internal conflict. Schmidle entered Pakistan in February 2006, befriended a radical cleric (who became an enemy of the state and was killed), came to crave the smell of tear gas (because it assured him that he was sufficiently close to the action), was deported by the Pakistani authorities, managed to get back into the country, and was chased out a second time.--From publisher description.
