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.
