9780143119210: The Most Dangerous Place: Pakistan's Lawless Frontier

The tribal region located on the frontier between Pakistan and Afghanistan is the centre of terrorist activity in the world today. Since 2001, Al Qaeda and Taliban fighters have regrouped here, using its mountainous terrain as a safe haven in which to train, plan major terror attacks, send insurgents to Afghanistan, and recruit ever-younger fighters.

In this essential book Imtiaz Gul follows the trail of militancy to show how a fatal mix of ultra-conservatism, economic under-development and an absence of law and order have radicalized a region and its people, with grave consequences for the stability of Pakistan.

Using a wealth of local knowledge, and interviews with officials, militant leaders and followers, this is the definitive account of the place that poses an international security risk unlike any other.

Book Description Penguin Books, 2011. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "To understand the mess we're getting into in Pakistan's lawless tribal areas, there's no better book out there." -Robert Baer, bestselling author of See No Evil The tribal region bordering Afghanistan, known as FATA (Federally Administered Tribal Area), has always been only loosely under government control. But since 2001 it has become a hornet's nest of violent extremists, many of whom have turned against their own state. In this groundbreaking book based on accounts by high-level Pakistani intelligence and military operatives and extensive firsthand reporting in villages where no American would be safe, award-winning reporter and broadcaster Imtiaz Gul chronicles his country's alarming slide into militancy. The United States is mired at great expense in Afghanistan, but Pakistan poses a far greater threat to American interests and to global security. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0143119214
