Overtaken by Events: A Pakistan Road Trip

Ethan Casey, Journalist; Author, Alive and Well in Pakistan and Overtaken by Events: A Pakistan Road Trip

Casey recounts a six-week overland trip made in early 2009, beginning in Mumbai, India, in the early aftermath of that city's terrorist siege, and ending in Karachi, Pakistan. He offers compelling perspectives on events during a volatile period in a chronically volatile country, from the assassination of Benazir Bhutto to the movement for the restoration of an independent judiciary. Join us for his fascinating firsthand account of what’s happening in Pakistan.
