MAGNIFICENT DELUSIONS Pakistan, the United States, and an Epic History of Misunderstanding

by | Read by Ralph Lister

Contemporary Culture • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

History made into story, this is an excellent title for those who want to understand more about the complex relationship the U.S. has with Pakistan, bastion of Islamic ideology. Narrator Ralph Lister's crisp, deliberate pronunciation moves through the dense historical details at a steady pace while remaining comprehensible. Lister makes sense of a dizzying number of dates, names, and facts in recounting the creation and seventy-year process of shaping the modern-day state. His narration is swift and sure, taking the listener along the intricate narrative. For those who enjoy nonfiction in the audio format, this is a strong example of how substantial historical and cultural material can be handled deftly.
