By G. Berton Latamore on January 23, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"A Fragile Future" is not intended as a stand-alone book, nor is it a sample as the two other reviewers mischaracterized it. Rather it is an update to Rashid's excellent "Descent into Chaos", analyzing the events in Afghanistan and Pakistan from just before 9/11 through the last year of the President G.W. Bush administration. As such it is an excellent analysis that takes the reader up to the inauguration of President Obama. However, it should not be read by itself but rather after reading "Descent into Chaos". Like the larger work this combines a description of important events with Rashid's analysis and is valuable for anyone interested in the situation in and around the Indian subcontinent, Afhanistan, and central Asia.

This is just a sample of the book. Introduction and part of first chapter. However no where does it state that you are buying a sample, particularly as the product is described as a 560 page kindle book. Just download the free sample.
