How did we reach the edge of the nuclear abyss in 2002, an abyss over which we are still teetering? In a stunning portrait of a complex region, J. Sri Raman demonstrates that by becoming “allies” in the U.S.-led war on terrorism, India and Pakistan have actually become more implacable adversaries than ever before, with each hoping to turn the situation to its own decisive and deadly advantage.


“Flashpoint is a clinical report of the subcontinent's sickness. This full indictment of the military-fascism on both sides of the Indo-Pak border will send chills down the spine of ordinary folk, just as it will move us to move on.”
--Vijay Prashad, author, Fat Cats and Running Dogs: The Enron Stage of Capitalism

“With over 30-years’ experience as an esteemed journalist and peace activist, J. Sri Raman gives us a dynamic, astute and beautifully-written book for those seeking to understand India’s and Pakistan’s dramatic recent history and socio-political complexities, including the roles of the US and the “post – 9/11 era,” leading to the region’s current status as a nuclear weapons flashpoint with imminent global implications. Essential reading!”
--Sally Light, Board Member, Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space
