    The Battles that Shaped Indian History

    The Battles that Shaped Indian History

    The Battles that shaped Indian history is a concise, factual account of the battles that have decided India's destiny. It covers a spectrum spanning almost two and a half millennia- from Alexandra's battle with King Poros on the banks of the Jhelum River in 326 BC to India's decisive victory over Pakistan in 1971. Twelve of India's major battles have been covered, each embellished with detailed maps and photographs. The characteristics of the main protagonists, the tactics and weaponry utilized by both sides and also the turning moment of the battles have been enumerated to make the battles come alive and help the reader understand them better. The book provides an interesting and incisive account of India's military history and provides an illuminating overview of its battles. It highlights the tactical concepts, weaponry and thinking of Indian armies down the ages and also brings out the inherent flaws and weaknesses which were so often exploited by foreign invaders. The lessons of these battles can be applied in today's conflicts and hold relevance even in the battlegrounds of the future.

    The Age of Oil

    The Age of Oil

    Oil is the most vital resource of our time. Because it is so important, misperceptions about the black gold abound. Leonardo Maugeri clears the cobwebs by describing the colorful history of oil, and explaining the fundamentals of oil production. He delivers a unique, fascinating, and controversial perspective on the industry-as only an insider could. The history of the oil market has been marked, since its inception, by a succession of booms and busts, each one leading to a similar psychological climax and flawed political decisions. In a single generation, we've experienced the energy crisis of 1973; the dramatic oil countershock of 1986; the oil collapse of 1998-99 that gave rise to the idea of oil as just another commodity; and the sharp price increases following hurricane Katrina's devastation in the Gulf of Mexico. Today, we are experiencing a global oil boom that, paradoxically, seems to herald a gloomy era of scarcity exacerbated by growing consumption and the threat from Islamic terrorism in the oil-rich Middle East. Maugeri argues that the pessimists are wrong. In the second part of his book, he debunks the main myths surrounding oil in our times, addressing whether we are indeed running out of oil, and the real impact of Islamic radicalism on oil-rich regions. By translating many of the technical concepts of oil productions into terms the average reader can easily grasp, Maugeri answers our questions. Ultimately, he concludes that the wolf is not at the door. We are facing neither a problem of oil scarcity, nor an upcoming oil blackmail by forces hostile to the West. Only bad political decisions driven by a distorted view of current problems (and who is to blame for them) can doom us to a gloomy oil future.

    Journey East

    Journey East

    A highly accurate and encyclopedic compendium of the history of western encounters with eastern religious traditions. One finds herein not just the names of innumerable significant individuals, but a review of their views and their significance. It will long remain a standard reference work. - Rama Kumaraswamy, author of The Destruction of the Christian Tradition and The Invocation of the Name of Jesus: As Practiced in the Western Church Journey East is one of the very few intellectual histories of our age, if we take the intellect to be more than the mind or reason. Journey East is an account of the actual philosophers of the recent past rather than of the poseurs and pretenders to that title who in the same breath call themselves empiricists or post-modern. - Roger Sworder, La Trobe University, Bendigo, author of Mining, Metallurgy, and the Meaning of Life and Homer on Immortality: The Journey of Odysseus as a Path to Perfection Journey East is a very comprehensive exposition of the interaction and influence between West and East from Antiquity to the present day: a very valuable book for the reader who desires to be informed of these encounters from the perspective of the Sophita Perennis, and a very useful and precious ?textbook? for the teacher who needs to have an historical as well as a logical way of organizing so many complex forms of 'Orientalism'. -Jean-Pierre Lafouge, Marquette University

    Militancy in Pakistan and Afghanistan

    Militancy in Pakistan and Afghanistan

    Afghanistan is located at the cross-roads of many civilizations. It is the gateway to India as well as to Central Asia. It shares borders with Pakistan, Iran, and the Central Asian Republics of Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan a volatile mix of nations in a troubled corner of the world. Historically, the country with the most interest in the region is Russia. which views Central Asia as its back yard, and the nations located within it stepping stones to the warm waters of the Arabian Sea. Seven years after Afghanistan’ s first-ever Presidential election, the increasingly besieged Government of Hamid Karzai has virtually lost credibility at home and abroad. Al Qaeda has found a new friend in the region the Tehrik-e-Taliban of Pakistan (TTP)- which has offered them a safe haven in the tribal belt of the country. The biggest risk the world faces today is the destabilizing of Pakistan, a nation of around 180 million people and in possession of over one hundred nuclear warheads. Ten years after the U.S. led coalition and the Afghan commanders it supported pushed the leadership of the Taliban and al Qaeda out of Afghanistan into Pakistan, an insurgency that includes other groups is gaining ground on both the Afghan and Pakistan side of the border.

    Cyber Crime : Criminal Threats from Cyberspace

    Cyber Crime : Criminal Threats from Cyberspace

    In Russia, there are people who earn their living trading in personal information belonging to American citizens. They maintain websites where one can buy names, addresses, and Social Security and credit card numbers. Cybercrime flourishes both transnationally and within our own borders. It is time to arm ourselves with the information we need to remain safe. Cybercrime: Criminal Threats from Cyberspace is intended to explain two things: what cybercrime is and why the average citizen should care about it. To accomplish that task, the book offers an overview of cybercrime and an in-depth discussion of the legal and policy issues surrounding it. Enhancing her narrative with real-life stories, author Susan W. Brenner traces the rise of cybercrime from mainframe computer hacking in the 1950s to the organized, professional, and often transnational cybercrime that has become the norm in the 21st century. She explains the many different types of computer facilitated crime, including identity theft, stalking, extortion, and the use of viruses and worms to damage computers, and outlines and analyzes the challenges cybercrime poses for law enforcement officers at the national and international levels. Finally, she considers the inherent tension between improving law enforcement’s ability to pursue cybercriminals and protecting the privacy of U.S. citizens.

    THE IRAQ WAR - Strategy, Tactics and Military Lessons

    THE IRAQ WAR - Strategy, Tactics and Military Lessons

    In the spring of 2003, a stunned world watched the armed forces of the United States and Britain conduct a military campaign against Iraq. As a result, the Iraqi regime was dismantled, and much of the conventional wisdom about modern war was irrevocably altered. Yet as U.S. and British forces occupy Basra, Tikrit, and Mosul, the Iraqi nation has slipped into anarchy?and the phrase shock and awe has begun to sound more appropriate as a description of the wars aftermath, rather than its opening. Such has been the twisted trail of the Iraq Wars dramatic events. But like so many other conflicts, the war ultimately seems to pose more questions than it solved. This book is the first in-depth analysis of the second war against Saddam Husseins regime. What are the repercussions of the pre-war political fights in Washington, Paris, and the UN? Was meeting initial military goals really due to Anglo-American arms, or had Saddams regime simply been too degraded to fight? Why did not Baghdad become a second Stalingrad? Why were not the occupying forces prepared to impose order? And then there is the significant question: Where are Iraqs weapons of mass destruction? Respected military analyst Anthony Cordesman incisively examines the key issues swirling around the most significant U.S. war since Vietnam. Beginning the search for answers is essential to understanding Americas awesome power and its place in a new age of international terror.

    THE PAKISTAN CAULDRON : Conspiracy, Assassination and Instability

    THE PAKISTAN CAULDRON : Conspiracy, Assassination and Instability

    The killing of Osama bin Laden spotlighted Pakistan's unpredictable political dynamics, which are often driven by conspiracy theory, paranoia, and a sense of betrayal. In Pakistan, the late prime minister Benazir Bhutto famously declared, there is "always the story behind the story." In The Pakistan Cauldron, James P. Farwell explains what makes Pakistani politics tick. Farwell has advised the Department of Defense on terrorism, sovereignty, and the political issues in the Middle East, Africa, and Pakistan. Here he reveals how key Pakistani political players have inconsistently employed the principles of strategic communication to advance their agendas and undercut their enemies. Pakistan is an enigma to many. Only by understanding the complex forces that shape Pakistani leaders can we uncover their shifting political agendas and how they affect America and the West. Farwell explains how and why former president Pervez Musharraf clamped down on nuclear scientist A. Q. Kahn and isolated him. He assesses Benazir Bhutto's unique legacy and analyzes how Musharraf handled the aftermath of her assassination. He explains Pakistan's current instability and demonstrates how the country's emotional reaction to bin Laden's death is best understood as the outcome of long-standing political dynamics. The Pakistan Cauldron is for anyone who needs to know why Pakistan continues to pose increasingly difficult challenges for the United States and the West.

    Certain Victory : The US Army in the Gulf War

    Certain Victory : The US Army in the Gulf War

    Certain Victory is a unique, clearest report of the US army’s performance during Gulf War. It was researched and written under the author’s instruction by a group of eight officers drawn from many different combat Gulf War. This begins by chronicling the Army’s remarkable regeneration in the two decades after Vietnam – the changes that were the foundation of the Desert Storm victory. Each chapter leads off with a compelling personal combat story that brings you right into battle alongside individual soldiers and puts the conflict into human perspective. The focus of Certain Victory is the operation and tactical levels of war. The political and diplomatic decision making that resulted in the Army’s deployment decision to the South West Asia is mentioned incidentally and only to the degree that it sets the stage for the conflict. Certain Victory’s treatment of other services and other nation’s contribution to the defeat of Saddam Hussein intentionally focuses on those services and countries that most directly and immediately impacted on the Army’s mission. Unfortunately, time and space did not permit us to include all units and key personalities.

    Inside the Pakistan Army

    Inside the Pakistan Army

    Inside the Pakistan Army: A Woman's Experience on the Frontline of the War on Terror - this is an inside account of the Pakistan Army, by Carey Schofield, a journalist, who stayed and traveled with the Pakistan Army for over 5 years. She has also written the book, Inside the Soviet Army.

    This book is a fairly charitable account of the Pakistan Army. It does not go into the various accusations that the Pakistan Army has faced from many American quarters - as an organisation accused, at best, of being an unwilling ally of America in its war against terror, and at worst, being labeled as an organisation which actively helps the Taliban, while maintaining a public face against it.

    What goes for the book is its vividness and the insider's perspective of the Pakistan Army. It traces the Pakistan Army from its inception and its evolution through the twists and turns of its history or wars with India and its War against Terror.

    Patton : Legendary World War II Commander

    Patton : Legendary World War II Commander

    Praise for his performance was precisely what George Smith Patton, Jr. had sought all his life. As a cadet at the Virginia Military Institute and West Point, he was already searching for what he called 'the undefinable difference' that distinguished a great general from the good ones. He led a mechanized attack in Mexico and a tank battalion during World War I. In World War II he turned American fortunes around in North Africa, chased the Germans out of Sicily, and sparked the breakout and liberation of France. When the Germans attacked the American First Army in the Battle of the Bulge, Patton turned his army north and smashed the German salient. He then drove into the heart of Germany and reached Czechoslovakia by war's end. Brilliant yet flawed, Patton's leadership style drove himself and his men to acts of bravery and victory. Half uncouth, provincial cowboy and half cultured sophisticate, the man behind the warrior mask was a complex and paradoxical person. He became an icon of the American military leader and the uncompromising individual.

    Shooting Up : Counterinsurgency and the War on Drugs

    Most policymakers see counterinsurgency and counternarcotic policy as two sides of the same coin. Stop the flow of drug money, the logic goes, and the insurgency will wither away. But the conventional wisdom is dangerously wrongheaded, as Vanda Felbab-Brown argues in Shooting Up. Counternarcotic campaigns, particularly those focused on eradication, typically fail to bankrupt belligerent groups that rely on the drug trade for financing. Worse, they actually strengthen insurgents by increasing their legitimacy and popular support.

    Dragon Unravelled : A new perspective of China

    Dragon Unravelled : A new perspective of China

    This book, generalist in approach, is primarily meant to give the reader a holistic and balanced view of China. Till recently, China has been an enigma for most, especially Indians, because of the 1962 India-China was and consequent unhappy relations between the two neighboring countries. China's bamboo curtain, its background of exclusiveness and insularity had compounded the problem. Interest in China has grown exponentially because of its unparalleled economic growth challenging classical economics and its emergence as the second largest economy on the strength of FDI generated exports. China's superb performances in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the recent 2010 Asian Games have unequivocally announced its emergence as a sports power. The cultural extravaganza put for their opening and closing ceremonies provided glimpses of its glorious past and cultural power. It has been investing heavily in Africa and some countries in South East Asia and Europe. Recent surveys in US show that its image has been improving even in countries traditionally unfriendly. The increasing emphasis on its traditional culture, involvement in UN and its peace keeping operations and improved image in many western countries show a rise in its soft power. The ongoing rapid modernization of its military and strong economy demonstrate its hard power. As India, now about 10-15 years behind China in terms of economic development, is estimated, in a few years time, to overtake China in respect of growth of GDP and as there are may lessons Indian can learn in an emerging scene of cooperation and competition between the two, it is interesting to study the emerging Chinese scenario. Basically, the author has given the facts, figures, studies and analyses, both positive and negative, leaving the reader to make his own value judgments, as Prof. (Dr.) M.G.S. Narayanan points out in his Foreword. The proceeds from the book are dedicated to the cause of education of the Below Poverty Line children.

    China and its Neighbors

    China and its Neighbors

    China had attracted global attention in the recent past by becoming one of the decisive actors in Asia and beyond. It is the largest country in Asia and bordering the largest number of Asian countries, with the largest population, permanent membership in the United Nations Security Council and a recognised nuclear weapon state. Its geographical position in Asia provides it with unique privileges. It borders fourteen of the other 42 countries in Asia and others by land and with several other countries in maritime dimensions. China`s emergence as a third largest economy in the world after the United States and Japan in 2008 is providing opportunities as well as challenges. Hence, its political/border interactions with these nearly half of the Asian states are crucial in explaining inter-state dynamics in the region. China`s formulation of policies, their execution and implementation would be crucial for a number of states in Asia. The neighbouring countries` responses to these policies would also be crucial for China as well in evaluating the successes or failures of its adjustment with the neighbourhood. This book provides valuable insights on these issues, not only from India`s point of view, but also from the point of view of Japan. The research and analysis has been assembled by renowned scholars from both countries and is of value to the academics, specialists, policy analysts, think tanks and all interested in studying the geo-strategic significance of China today.

    Talibanisation of Pakistan

    Talibanisation of Pakistan

    Media Appreciation: Pakistan`s sincerity in dealing with terrorists operating from its soil has always been a subject of speculation. As India prepares for some serious stocktaking on the first anniversary of the 26/11 attacks, concerns remain about the possibility of similar terrorist attacks being launched from Pakistan in the future. Amir Mir shows in his book how Talibanisation began with Gen Zia-ul-Haq and continued to flourish even under the man who joined the US-led war against terror-General Musharraf. Describing the terror outfits-particularly those involved in Jammu & Kashmir and elsewhere in India-as the `civilian face of the Pakistani army`, Mir acknowledges how the current situation in Pakistan is a direct result of Islamabad using terrorism as a foreign policy tool to deal with India and in its quest for geo-strategic depth in the region. Outlook, India, December 7, 2009. `Talibanisation of Pakistan` takes the lid off all the lies and contradictions dished out on a daily basis by Pakistani military and the military-controlled government, which is losing its governable ground at a disturbing pace to the very Frankensteins spawned by the Pakistan Army over the past decades. Also, what this book dwells on is not only the disturbing aspect of Pakistan yet again reaching the brink with unprecedented developments, but how many of these adversely affect India, Afghanistan, the United States in its war on terror there, even Britain, and obviously Pakistan itself. The Asian Age, India, October 28, 2009 `Talibanisation of Pakistan` covers all the significant facts about the rise and rise of the Taliban in Pakistan and combines purposeful theoretical investigation with good use of history and empirical evidence. For its historical and political examination of Talibanisation, the book is a valuable work and a `must read` for anyone who wants to understand how Pakistan can respond to acts of terror. Amir Mir`s strength lies in the building up of case studies in an historical context to illustrate the dimensions of this amorphous phenomenon. The author draws in the reader with skill rarely seen in nonfiction writing. This extremely complex issue is dealt with in a unique yet straight forward manner. The book has the obvious authority of high quality research. The News International, Pakistan, October 19, 2009

    Investigating the Mumbai Conspiracy

    Investigating the Mumbai Conspiracy

    This title offers authentic insights by a renowned Pakistani Journalist...into the Islamic nation's plunge towards Talibanisation. 'Amir Mir has earned fame for his investigative reporting and for facing odds during the Musharraf dictatorship. His latest book is a dramatic, authoritative account of the menace convulsing Pakistan and sending shock waves throughout the world. His extraordinary first-hand and second-hand reportage takes the reader into mountains and plains, to shanty towns and capitals to know the guerrilla fighters, militant religious leaders, and terrorists. No one has covered the terrorist attacks, including the one which killed a former prime minister, Benazir Bhutto, as Mir does, detailing the origin and larger political and ethnic context in which they took place. The book should be required reading for the architects of Pakistan's often disastrous foreign and domestic policies. The author's rich combination of experience, sources, research and interviews has produced a significant body of knowledge about a deeply misunderstood subject. What makes his book worth reading is the way he treats his subject without sensationalizing or patronizing it. Mir manages, against all odds, to get a fix on a phenomenon that is complex, elusive and kaleidoscopic. Most impressive, however, is his ability to assess the situation with a clear eye, objective attitude and enormous intelligence' - "The News" - Pakistani English Daily. "Talibanization of Pakistan: From 9/11 to 26/11" is a comprehensive and authoritative handbook on the rise and growth of Islamic militant groups in Pakistan which are a threat to not only neighbouring countries but also the very society that sustains them. The book portrays a dangerous and tragic picture of Pakistan, founded by a secular and moderate leader Mohammad Ali Jinnah, but a nation now on the verge of Talibanization.

    The Terrorist Conjunction

    The Terrorist Conjunction

    Missing from many contemporary analyses of the causes of terrorism is any mention of the role of U.S. foreign policy, an examination of which is seen by some critics as inherently unpatriotic. Even less attention is paid to the role of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Gerteiny, who has lived in the Middle East and has studied the region for more than four decades, does not shy away from such controversies. In this book, he discusses the seminal causes of contemporary transnational terrorism, particularly the grievances inherent in the persistent Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Gerteiny examines state and anti-state forms of terrorism, and he carefully distinguishes between terrorism carried out in pursuit of national liberation by the Palestinians and the theologically driven jihadism that feeds on it. He considers anti-Western Islamism as being reactive to a U.S. Middle East policy inordinately influenced by the Zionist lobby. He reflects on Muslim and Islamist world views and assesses the U.S. reaction to terrorism after 9/11, including the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Israel's unchecked expansionism at the expense of Palestine and its suffocating grip over its population, carried out under the cover of U.S. protection, constitute ethnic cleansing in Gerteiny's view. This, and the ill-conceived U.S. strategy in the Gulf region, in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the lack of communications with Syria and Iran are perceived by most Muslims as harbingers of an ongoing new crusade. They constitute the main pernicious elements upon which the wider-reaching vengeful Islamist theopolitical jihadism thrives, ultimately threatening the spread of democracy, the survival of Israel in the Middle East, and peaceful coexistence with the Muslim world.
