Summary
"What does the future hold for Afghanistan? How will the war there affect the already unstable politics of Central Asia? In War at the Top of the World, veteran foreign correspondent Eric Margolis presents a revelatory history of the complicated and volatile conflicts that have entangled Afghanistan, Pakistan, the United States, the Soviet Union, and many others. He plays witness to the escalating conflicts of the past decade, tracing disputes over Afghanistan, as well as those over neighboring Kashmir and Tibet, back to their Cold War roots, and exploring clashes that continue to threaten to destabilize the region today. Combining vivid first-hand accounts with a historical and strategic overview of the region, Margolis guides the reader through the geopolitical complexities of the area and its key players. He offers a clear, concise analysis of a complicated and little-understood part of the world that is home to a quarter of the world's population. Fascinating and now more timely than ever, War at the Top of the World is an extraordinary read for anyone interested in the current global balance of power."--Jacket
