Breeding ground : Afghanistan and the origins of Islamist terrorism by Deepak Tripathi( Book )
13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 280 libraries worldwide
Explaining how Afghanistan descended into a civil war from which the Taliban emerged, Tripathi explores the ways in which the country ultimately became a grotesque mirror image of the anticommunist alliance of U.S. forces and radical Islamists in the Cold War's final phase. Calling for a departure from the current pursuit of military strong-arm tactics, he advocates an approach that is centered on development, internal reconciliation, and societal reconstruction in Afghanistan. --Book Jacket
Overcoming the Bush legacy in Iraq and Afghanistan by Deepak Tripathi( Book )
9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 177 libraries worldwide
"The military venture on which George W. Bush embarked within months of his 2001 inauguration has eclipsed all other efforts during his presidency. What started as a military response to al Qaeda's attacks in New York and Washington on September 11, 2001, with the goal of neutralizing al Qaeda and its Taliban hosts in Afghanistan, quickly fused with the neoconservative agenda to reshape and dominate the Middle East. Al Qaeda's terrorism was answered with American military power, which has destroyed or blighted the lives of millions in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan." "Having kept a keen rye on the region for more than three decades, former BBC correspondent Deepak Tripathi systematically identifies in Overcoming the Bush Legacy in Iraq and Afghanistan the administration's naive calculations, strategic and operational blunders, disregard for history and for other cultures, and even downright prejudices that have brought so much harm to so many. Bush's "war on terror" has provoked resentment and violent opposition, opened up sectarian divisions, and created Hobbesian conditions of all-against-all war. The long-term price tag for America has been estimated at a colossal $3 trillion, but as Tripathi seeks to demonstrate, the total cost, in human and economic terms, will be incalculable." "Overall, Tripathi asserts that American exceptionalism and unilateralism are relics of a bygone political era. The limitations of twenty-firstcentury military technology have been laid bare, and the legacy of the administration's foreign policy will take years to overcome. The Obama administration must now undertake slow and painstaking diplomacy to repair ties with adversaries, to listen more to allies, and to seek new ones. Overcoming the Bush Legacy in Iraq and Afghanistan is not only a cogent and honest appraisal of the Bush administration, but also a stark reminder of the consequences we all face."--Jacket
Imperial designs : war, humiliation & the making of history by Deepak Tripathi( Book )
9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 161 libraries worldwide
Since the age of Alexander the Great, waves of foreign armies have invaded the Middle East and South Asia to plunder their vast treasures. In Imperial Designs, Deepak Tripathi offers a powerful and unique analysis of how this volatile region has endured the manipulation and humiliation of such wars. He argues that these foreign invasions to gain access to others' wealth and the consequent ignominy of the defeated peoples of the regions have had far-reaching consequences. Over the centuries, again and again, the conquered peoples have been left helpless, their shame on display. The victims' collective frustration has strengthened their will to resist and avenge the wrongs done to them--all according to their own values and in their own time. Displaying a keen awareness of Middle Eastern and South Asian cultures, Tripathi argues that this enduring theme resonates throughout the region's history and informs the present. Referring to declassified official documents and scholarly works, Imperial Designs offers an authoritative analysis of Middle Eastern history since World War I and the fall of the Ottoman Empire. Scholars, policymakers, and concerned citizens should read this book, for it tells us how the shame of defeat radicalizes nations and societies, and often makes future conflict inevitable

A critical study of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars : interests, motives, actions and the makings of a culture of violence by Deepak Tripathi( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This submission includes two studies, based primarily on the use of historical archives, of the Afghan wars from 1978 and the Iraq War from 2003. Breeding Ground: Afghanistan and the Origins of Islamist Terrorism (2011) is a study of various layers of the Afghan conflict: the 1978 communist coup; the 1979 Soviet invasion and America's proxy war against the Soviet occupying forces in the 1980s; and the rise of the Taliban in the 1990s. It shows how Islamist groups allied to the West against Soviet and Afghan communism turned into enemies of the United States, with consequences including the September 11, 2001 attacks, President George W. Bush's retaliation against the Taliban in Afghanistan, and the invasion of Iraq. Overcoming the Bush Legacy in Iraq and Afghanistan (2010) is an analysis of the George W. Bush presidency in terms of its "war on terror." The books thus study the Afghan and Iraqi conflicts in the context of United States foreign policy, with particular emphasis on the interests, actions and motives of actors in the conflicts and the interactions between internal and external actors. The central argument is that these factors contributed to the development of a "culture of violence," defined as that "condition in which violence permeates all levels of society and becomes part of human thinking, behavior and way of life," and how this provided space for "terrorist" groups to operate
