To oppose the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979, the USA formed an extraordinary anti-communist alliance with militant Islamic forces in South Asia. In this controversial book, John Cooley provides a behind-the-scenes account of this alliance and of how the CIA planned and ran the holy war in Afghanistan. In this edition Cooley brings the subject up to date with a description of the Bin Laden-linked terrorist conspiracy network uncovered in the US and Canada since December 1999. He also covers the important events in Pakistan since the military coup of October 1999 and the impact of this on Indo-Pakistani relations, and focuses on recent events in Algeria, which have been linked to the extremist GIA - the group whose members are alleged to be involved in the new US-Canada conspiracies.
