About the Author

Tariq Ali has written more than two-dozen books on world history and politics -- the most recent of which are The Clash of Fundamentalisms, The Obama Syndrome and The Extreme Centre -- as well as the novels of his Islam Quintet and scripts for the stage and screen. He is a long-standing member of the editorial committee of New Left Review and lives in London.

Reviews

"Ali's discussion of Afghanistan is highly valuable because of the questions it raises ... a starting point for a much-needed debate."
--New York Times

"The typical Financial Times reader might find his bias so irksome they cannot continue. This would be a pity."
--Financial Times

"Evergreen ... Ali has argued against each occupation from its beginning; the result is an embittered, haunting refrain."
--Eileen Gonzalez, Foreword Reviews

"A key contribution to make sense of the decades-long events that culminated in the chaotic scenes at Kabul's airport in August 2021."
--Marc Martorell Junyent, Inside Arabia
