Pakistan's relentless attempts to seize the state of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) from the Indian Union are well known and documented. Yet little is known about the pattern of terrorist activities and the strategies used by the different tanzeems, or organisations, especially during the troubled decades from 1980 to 2000. The book begins with a brief overview of the origins of the dispute between India and Pakistan over Jammu and Kashmir. It continues by providing details of thirtyone `tanzeems' or organizations involved in terrorist activies in the region, their arms supply, training and funding, and also their links with organisations outside India. It concludes with an examination of the current situation in Jammu and Kashmir with the armies of India and Pakistan deployed on the Line of Control (LOC). Coming at a time when the people of Jammu and Kashmir go to the polls to decide their future, this timely book will find a wide readership, both among the lay public and academics.

Excerpt from Men of Canada: A Portrait Gallery of Men Whose Energy, Ability, Enterprise and Public Spirit Are Responsible for the Advancement of Canada, the Premier Colony of Great Britain It is to this spirit of warring against oblivion that we owe the daguerrotype, the painting and the portrait from which the faces of the past look out upon us. But it is only by means of modern inventions that a man may have collected for himself, between the two covers of a single volume, the faces of a thousand friends. In a word, the invention of the camera and the half-tone engraving alone makes possible such a volume as this. These scientific processes enable a man to war against oblivion and preserve his own features for present and future generations. They also enable him to preserve the features of the friends and compeers who are of most interest to him during the strenuous period of his life. They enable him to baulk oblivion.
