The United States, South Asia and the Global Anti-Terrorist Coalition

Anita Inder Singh (Author)
Synopsis Global terrorism is high on the international agenda.  Anita Inder Singh breaks new ground by exploring the significance of South Asia in the US-led international coalition against terrorism.  What are the security concerns of the US, India and Pakistan in the war against global terrorism? How successfully has the US quelled extremism in Afghanistan? What is significance of the American perception of India as an emerging Asian and global power and the strengthening of Indo-US ties, as reflected in the unprecedented American decision to admit India into the nuclear club in March 2006?  The US has claimed that it is fighting terrorism to advance democracy and human rights.  But its alliance with Pakistan, and reports of human rights abuses by American troops in Afghanistan (and Iraq) has raised the questions about the means used to combat terrorism.  Will the anti-terrorist strategies and tactics of the US in South Asia establish that it is the world's principal spoiler, or a superpower upholding international norms and strengthening the capacity and legitimacy of international society to trounce terrorism?
