Danziger's Travels: Beyond Forbidden Frontiers
This account describes the author's adventures during an 18-month journey beyond forbidden frontiers in Asia. With minimal equipment and disguised as an itinerant Muslim, he hitch-hiked and walked through southern Turkey, and the Iran of the Ayatollahs, entering Afghanistan illegally in the wake of a convoy of Chinese weapons and then spent months dodging Russian helicopter gunships with the rebel guerillas. He was the first foreigner to cross from Pakistan into the closed western province of China since the revolution on 1949.

His story of going through Afghanistan is really amazing. However, he seems to tire later on (as he admits himself), and spends the pages describing expatriate social life and his attempts to get his visa renewed. Read full review
