Description

'The most dangerous place in the world' - Barack Obama. The borderlands of Afghanistan and Pakistan have become the arena for a global conflict with consequences that defy prediction. "Afghan Frontier" traces the history of this region as a hotly contested battlefield for millennia. At the crossroads of Central Asia, gateway to India and the West, Afghanistan has tempted countless invaders in their quest for domination. Leading regional expert Victoria Schofield presents a gripping portrait of the frontier territories and the militant fighters and resilient tribesmen who shaped it. As the borderlands - now dubbed 'Af-Pak' - assume an increasingly important role in international politics, understanding the history and geopolitical importance of this region has never been more important.
