Summary
The war in Afghanistan has become the most complex foreign policy problem the United States has ever faced, spreading into Pakistan and involving the conflicting interests of Russia, India, China and Iran. Crossing Zero focuses on the nuances of the Obama administration's evolving military and political strategy, those who have been chosen to implement it, and the long-term consequences for the U.S. and the region. A clear, well-researched and easy-to-read analysis of the spiraling U.S. war in Afghanistan/Pakistan.-publisher description
