Crossing Zero : The Afpak War at the Turning Point of American Empire
"Fitzgerald and Gould do yeoman's labor in clearing the fog and laying bare American failures in Afghanistan."—Publishers Weekly, starred review of Invisible History
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. Written as a companion to Elizabeth Gould and Paul Fitzgerald's widely acclaimed book Invisible History: Afghanistan's Untold Story, Crossing Zero focuses on the nuances of the Obama administration's evolving military and political strategy, the people implementing it, and the long-term consequences for the United States and the region.
