Pakistan and American Diplomacy offers an insightful, fast-moving tour through Pakistan-U.S. relations, from 9/11 to the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, as told from the perspective of a former U.S. diplomat who served twice in Pakistan. Ted Craig frames his narrative around the 2019 Cricket World Cup, a contest that saw Pakistan square off against key neighbors and cricketing powers Afghanistan, India, and Bangladesh, and its former colonial ruler, Britain.

Craig provides perceptive analysis of Pakistan?s diplomacy since its independence in 1947, shedding light on the country?s contemporary relations with the United States, China, India, Sri Lanka, and Afghanistan. With insights from the field and from Washington, Craig reflects on the chain of policy decisions that led to the fall of the Kabul government in 2021 and offers a sober and balanced view of the consequences of that policy failure. Drawing on his post?Cold War diplomatic career, Craig presents U.S.-Pakistan policy in the context of an American experiment in promoting democracy while combating terrorism.

Author Description

I am a Kansas native and retired diplomat who continues to work in South and Central Asia to support U.S. foreign policy goals (currently, in Dhaka, Bangladesh and soon in Tashkent, Uzbekistan). My "Pakistan and American Diplomacy: Insights from 9/11 to the Afghanistan Endgame" is my first published book. My 29-year career in the U.S. Foreign Service included two tours in Pakistan during the 2010s.
