Since the second world war, the states of South Asia have been engulfed in a variety of conflicts. These include the Tamil Tigers? struggles in Sri Lanka, the unrest in Myanmar (Burma), Maoist insurgency in Nepal, the Bangladeshi war of independence, the gruelling conflicts in Kashmir and Afghanistan, and the ?War on Terror? To date, few attempts have been made to examine these conflicts in their regional and global context. Rob Johnson fills in the gaps, and explains and evaluates the historic and political roots of these wars in a systematic and thematic way. The subject is vitally important, not least because the two leading states, India and Pakistan, are nuclear powers that have resorted to war with each other on a number of occasions since independence. In addition, the insurgencies of the last 50 years continue to destabilize the region, and now they seriously affect the rest of the world. Highly topical, A Region in Turmoil provides an invaluable analysis of South Asia and its complex history. It is essential reading not only for historians and policymakers, but for anyone who follows current affairs. Contents: Preface ? The significance of Conflicts in South Asia ? Conflicts in India ?
