Few countries have been more affected by the US-led war against Afghanistan than India. There was initial hope that the war would stamp out the terrorism plaguing India but this was soon belied, and the Afghan situation remains highly unpredictable. By now, American`s interest has shifted elsewhere, yet the military presence it has established all around Afghanistan profoundly affects the geopolitical picture in the heart of Asia. The powerful lure of oil and gas has begun to open up a region once off limits to the West, and new commercial and political rivalries are taking shape. Printed Pages: 198.

Inhaltsangabe: This book compiles papers from a recent seminar organized by The Academy of Third World Studies of Jamia Millia Islamia, where a number of noted experts looked in depth at events in and around Afghanistan, its history, current situation and future prospects; also what it tells us about todays unipolar world.
