Description - India, Pakistan and the Secret Jihad by Praveen Swami

India, Pakistan and the Secret Jihad explores the history of jihadist violence in Kashmir, and argues that the violent conflict which exploded after 1990 was not a historical discontinuity, but, rather, an escalation of what was by then a five-decade old secret war. Praveen Swami addresses three key issues: * the history of jihadist violence in Jammu and Kashmir, which is examined as it evolved from 1947-48 onwards * the impact of the secret jihad on Indian policy-making on Jammu and Kashmir, and its influence on political life within the state * why the jihad in Jammu and Kashmir acquired such intensity in 1990. This new work will be of much interest to students of the India-Pakistan conflict, South Asian politics and security studies in general.
