Book Description

Journalist Nicholas Schmidle worked in Pakistan from 2006-2008. Those two yearshave been arguably the most turbulent period of Pakistans recent history, a time when PresidentPervez Musharraf lost his power and the Taliban found theirs. During his time there, Schmidlemet and befriended some of Pakistans most wanted men, including Abdul Rashid Ghazi, thepro-Taliban leader who ran the Red Mosque and was killed in the famous siege in 2007, and JamilBugti, son of the legendary slain Baluchi separatist leader Akbar Khan Bugti. In To Live or toPerish Forever, he provides a rare glimpse of these men, taking us on a journey through Pakistanfrom the rioting streets of its cites, to Baluchistan, where a fiery separatist war is being played out,to the Taliban camps in the North-West Frontier Province. Gripping, sympathetic, and eye opening,To Live or to Perish Forever is a valuable first hand account of Pakistan today. It is essentialreading for anyone interested in the region.
