Flashpoint: how the U.S., India and Pakistan brought us to the brink of nuclear war
How did we reach the edge of the nuclear abyss in 2002? In a stunning portrait of a complex region, J. Sri Raman demonstrates that by becoming "allies" in the U.S.-led war on terrorism, India and Pakistan have actually become more implacable adversaries than ever before, with each hoping to turn the situation to its own decisive and deadly advantage. For the past three decades, J. Sri Raman has been a journalist and a social activist rolled into one. Based in Chennai (formerly Madras), he has worked as a reporter with The Hindustan Times, New Delhi's best-circulated daily and been a senior assistant editor at The Indian Express. He writes a weekly (Sunday) column for The Daily Times of Pakistan.
