    Description
    The Black Silk Road connects the dots across the world landscape illuminating in harrowing clarity the path to 9/11. A French journalist who'd covered the Afghan war is assassinated and a child brutally maimed over evidence of U. S. weapons provided to the Middle East amounting to billions of dollars paid for by heroin. Eight years later, in 1998, the journalist's young American widow comes to Pakistan in a search for the truth, only to find herself trapped in a dangerous world of nuclear tests, terrorist attacks, covert intelligence operations, corporate power chess, attempted assassinations, and murder. And also finds that she is, once again, in love. What emerges is a rich and sensitive exploration of the Islamic culture of today as it collides with the West. The Black Silk Road gives terrorism a human face, treating the terrorism perpetrated by the Islamic East, in as honest, real, and even-handed manner, as the terrorism of the corporate, covert-intelligence-driven, militarized West.

    An Eye Opening Read

    One of the better books on the theme of Islamist Fundamentalism. I say theme, because it is not exactly on that topic. It basically gives you a view from the other side. And by other I mean, the non-American side. I would not like to spoil it for you but be prepared for some serious eye-openers, which may drastically change the way you viewed some incidents. I am not sure about the extent to which the author is correct, but the speculation itself is the best part. Nothing in the book is conc...
