Hot, Icy War Zones

by BruceHH on May 15, 2007

This work is a combination, travelogue, history, and political commentary of the countries in the Himalayas and the plateaus surrounding them. The first country Margolis discusses is Afghanistan. Margolis notes that Russia?s grand strategy since Ivan the Terrible has been to gain warm water ports in the south. He tells of his foreboding on meeting with several Afghan mujahid in Toronto when they were on a money raising tour in the 1980s. They were faith based warriors in ?the Secret War? the US and others were waging against the Soviets in Afghanistan. The volunteers maintained their faith in a militant, activist, Islam. With the victory over the Soviets in Afghanistan the faith based warriors felt they?d war elsewhere. The mujahideen trained in Afghanistan went to Kashmir. Victory over the Russians spurred them on. Margolis discusses his various trips to the war zones, including the glacier India and Pakistan are fighting over. When he discusses Tibet he goes into a discourse on the grand strategy of the powers in Asia along with a history of the issues. But he also goes into the grand strategy regarding the US and Europe. Margolis? book provides an overview of the potential flash points in the icy, high altitudes of the world.
