'A fascinating account of insurgency and counter-insurgency in South Asia that is of importance both for the military and political history of the region and for those concerned with the subject on the global scale. One of the more significant works on recent military history to appear of late, this book is also of value to those considering the development of the subject as a whole.'Jeremy Black, University of Exeter, UK
