This is an unprecedented study of Pakistan's influential and mysterious intelligence services, based on exclusive inside access to some of the most important Pakistani government officials. Usama Butt describes the history and structure of the organisation and its role in domestic politics and Pakistani foreign policy. He explains the role of the organisation in driving Pakistani's participation in the 'War on Terror', outlining the deep contradictions which flow from this. From the ISI's role in the Afghan jihad against the Soviet Union to its relationship to the US today, this is a unique and fascinating account of Pakistan's complex relationships with outside forces. It will be vital reading for students and academics in International Relations, Security Studies and South-Asian studies.
