1 - 2 weeks availability


Pakistan's northwest frontier has become a breeding ground for a growing Islamic militancy that threatens the stability of the country. Instability in Pakistan's federally administered tribal areas and North-West frontier province also threatens NATO's strategic Khyber Pass lifeline to Afghanistan, where 37,000 U.S. troops are attempting to contain an expanding Taliban insurgency. Pakistan's Troubled Frontier offers a gripping snapshot of the militants and movements threatening a region plunging into turmoil. Arriving at a time when the United States is dramatically increasing its presence in Afghanistan and conducting a careful review of its policies and goals in the border region, the book is a substantial contribution to understanding the long-term future of U.S. security interests in South and Central Asia.
