The last colony: Muzaffarabad-Gilgit-Baltistan

Front Cover
India Research Press with Centre for Strategic and Regional Studies, University of Jammu, 2008 - History - 262 pages

Focusing on Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, specifically the Northern Areas and Azad Jammu, this exploration discusses three major impacts on the area’s future development: the 2005 earthquake, the post-9/11 surge in jihad activities, and sectarian violence in Gilgit and Baltistan. The arguments investigate what these three recent occurrences mean to the area’s national security, international presence and reputation, and human rights. The essays feature sample plans, guidelines, and protocols for optimal deployment and expansion of the community-based resources necessary for constructive progression.
