Books Info:

On the Grand Trunk Road free pdf Available for the first time in paperback, Steve Coll's trek across a socially and politically damaged South Asia Bestselling author Steve Coll is one of the preeminent journalists of the twenty-first century. His last two books, the Pulitzer Prize-winning "Ghost Wars" and "New York Times" bestseller "The Bin Ladens," have been praised for their creative insight and complex yet compelling narratives-and have put him on par with journalists such as the legendary Bob Woodward. Now, for the first time ever, the paperback edition of "On the Grand Trunk Road" is finally available, revised and updated with new material. Focusing on Coll's journeys in conflict-ridden India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Afghanistan as a bureau chief for "The Washington Post, On the Grand Trunk Road" reveals a little-seen area of the world where violence, corruption, and greed have had devastating effects on South Asians from all walks of life.
