Eyewitness Kashmir: Teetering on Nuclear War

Front Cover
Marshall Cavendish Academic, 2004 - History - 297 pages
"The Asian Commentary Series features contributions from senior media commentators who have extensive on-location experience of key Asian regions and issues. Each book in the series, targeted at the intelligent reader, thus presents gripping first-hand analytical perspectives that serve to both inform and promote greater understanding of Asia. Kashmir is the global hot spot. More than being the nuclear flashpoint that it became twice since the triggering of the 1998 atomic bomb explosions by India and Pakistan, the rise in Islamic terrorism post 9/11 has made it more dangerous and a focus of global attention. Kashmir has the potential to explode due to the twin threats of nuclear conflagration and convergence of Islamic terrorism. This historical perspective is the narrator's account from his experience and personal knowledge as a media observer in Kashmir."
