Talibanistan: Negotiating the Borders Between Terror, Politics, and Religion

Talibanistan cover

The longest war the United States has ever fought is the ongoing war in Afghanistan. But when refer to "Afghanistan," we really mean a conflict that straddles the border with Pakistan -- and the reality of Islamic militancy on that border is enormously complicated. In Talibanistan, an unparalleled group of experts offer a nuanced understanding of this critical region.

Please join the New America Foundation’s National Security Studies Program for a conversation with some of these experts about the militancy and extremism that continue to plague Afghanistan and northwestern Pakistan.
