India, Pakistan and the Secret Jihad explores the history of jihadist violence in Kashmir, and argues that the violent conflict which exploded after 1990 was not a historical discontinuity, but, rather, an escalation of what was by then a five-decade old secret war. Praveen Swami addresses three key issues: * the history of jihadist violence in Jammu and Kashmir, which is examined as it evolved from 1947-48 onwards * the impact of the secret jihad on Indian policy-making on Jammu and Kashmir, and its influence on political life within the state * why the jihad in Jammu and Kashmir acquired such intensity in 1990. This new work will be of much interest to students of the India-Pakistan conflict, South Asian politics and security studies in general.
