Destiny Disrupted

You remember Tamim Ansary. He wrote that email about Afghanistan, just after 9/11, that viraled its way around the world.

His Destiny Disrupted is the most enlightening and exciting political book I’ve read since Jonathan Kwitny’s Endless Enemies, the one I measure political books by.

Besides, on page 130 Ansary debunks the nonsensical story about the word “hashish” deriving from “assassin.” About time somebody did.
