Publisher Description:
The book is a primer to the country and the people through facts and anecdotes. It outlines the Country's composition and diversity in ethnic, religious, urban-rural and civic-tribal terms. It also looks at the occupation, the chaos and lawlessness that followed and their effect on the lives of people and individuals. It provides a look into the "Triangle of Death" - one of the most volatile regions - from the inside, showing some of the intricacies of tribal relations. But, above all, this book is about people. It aims to illustrate how ordinary people dealt with the traumatic situation; why civil war was so hard to ignite; and why there is still hope... It may help the reader understand the failure to understand that led to failure.
