After September 11th , Ahmed Rashid's crucial book Taliban introduced American readers to that now notorious regime. In this new work, he returns to Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Central Asia to review the catastrophic aftermath of America's failed war on terror. Called "Pakistan's best and bravest reporter" by Christopher Hitchens, Rashid has shown himself to be a voice of reason amid the chaos of present-day Central Asia. Descent Into Chaos is his blistering critique of American policy-a dire warning and an impassioned call to correct these disasterous strategies before these failing states threaten global stability and bring devastation to our world.

Arthur Morey's narration is succinct, measured, and sharp despite the tone of this scathing overview of U.S. foreign policy errors in the Middle East. The text, which spans world events from just before 9/11 to the present day, is an indictment of neoconservative mismanagement of American diplomacy. Yet Morey's rapid delivery of complex sentences and ideas maintains a journalist's distance from the litany of incredible historical facts. This balanced tone prevents the volume from descending into an emotional diatribe. Morey's voice allows the listener to absorb the staggering scope of information presented, which includes a discussion of the dismantling of Iraq and new forms of colonialism that are suggested in the war in Afghanistan.
