About this product
- DescriptionThe Afghan-Pakistan Borderlands are pivotal to international security. They are often dangerous, strategically crucial and little explored by outsiders. Robin Brooke-Smith provides a new perspective on Northwest Pakistan in this first-hand account of his years in this troubled region. Tracing the build-up to 9/11 and the upheaval that has followed, this is a captivating behind-the-scenes look into the regional fulcrum of global jihad. Recounting his experiences as Principal of the prestigious Edwardes College in Peshawar, the author explores the creation and growing influence of the Taliban, and provides a unique and close-up view into this fascinating area. This book is illuminating reading for all those interested in Pakistan, Afghanistan and the turbulent recent history of the borderlands of the 'AfPak' region.
