Insightful and penetrative - a must-read for anyone interested in going beyond the stereotypes associated with Islamic terrorism and understanding the key drivers of fundamentalism and jihad. Dr. Venkatraman uses the backdrop of the beautiful Kashmir valley, devastated by decades of terrorism long before 9/11 brought Islamic terrorism into the focus of the Western world, to dissect her subject with incisive analysis and communicates through a flowing, easy-to-read style. An important piece of work for the scientific community and the layman alike.
