    One thought on “The Scorpion's Tail: The Relentless Rise of Islamic Militants in Pakistan-And How It Threatens America”

    1. I always read books authored by journalists in anticipation of interesting insights, quotes, and anecdotes that would enhance my understanding of a particular subject through first-hand accounts of the author. This particular book is a great disappointment in that respect. Zahid Hussain, a journalist by profession, has unsuccessfully pretended to be a researcher. The book is bland, uninteresting, superficial, and even erroneous at places. It is a roller-coaster ride in the political history of m [...]

    2. After reading this book and the Democracy in the Middle East book, I am convinced that neoconservatives assertion of assuring democracy in the world primarily with military means was a failure in policy. The reason it is impossible to "plant democracy" in the middle east is that in the end the Islamic countries are the ones that have to rule their own government not us. A more successful policy in combating terrorism not to mention cheaper is to help indigenous democratic forces with the US play [...]

    3. A good document of a decade long struggle of a country to tackle militancy through a confused policy, power struggle and inconsistency. Though I feel, the author used a very mechanical approach in laying out the sequence of events and did not form a particular opinion per say. The first half of the book is more gripping while the later half is just bland. Coming from a journalist of his reputation, I expected much deeper insight than what i found in this book. Nonetheless captures the dark pages [...]

    4. This may not be an ultimate book out there on the subject of militancy but I liked it because it chronicles the brief history of what happened in Pakistan, post 9/11. This book discusses the military operations in FATA, the failed negotiations and the subsequent formation of TTP. It deserves 4 stars in my view.

    5. Very topical for these times - the author obviously has a wealth of first hand knowledge of his subject matter.
