Frontiers Insurgencies and Counter-Insurgencies in South Asia

Kaushik Roy (Author)

This book uses cross-cultural analysis across Eurasia and Afro-Asia to trace the roots of contemporary border disputes and insurgencies in South Asia. It discusses the way frontiers of British India, and consequently the modern states of India and Pakistan, were drafted through negotiations backed up by organized violence, showing how this concept found its fruition in present-day counter-insurgency measures.

Contents: Preface. Introduction. 1. British India, North-West Frontier and the Afghan ‘Problem’: circa 1800–1913. 2. British India’s North-East Frontier and Burma: 1772–1913. 3.

Insurgencies and Counter-Insurgencies in North-East India: 1947–2013. Conclusion. Bibliography. Index.
