Why has the valley of Kashmir become a major flashpoint, threatening the stability of a region of great strategic importance and challenging the integrity of the Indian state? This book examines the Kashmir conflict in its historical context, from the period when the valley was a...n independent kingdom right up to the struggles of the present day. Located on the borders of China, Central Asia and the Sub-Continent, the insurgency in the valley continues to provoke serious tensions between India and Pakistan. Drawing upon research in India and Pakistan, as well as historical sources, this book traces the origins of the state and explores the implications of independence for Kashmir. With a new chapter covering recent developments in the region - including the implementation of martial law and the election of the BJP in India - this is the essential guide to the long-running conflict.Read more
