About The Book

South Asia looms large in American foreign policy. Over the past twodecades, the United States has invested billions of dollars and thousandsof human lives in the region, to seemingly little effect. As Srinath Raghavanreveals in The Most Dangerous Place, this should not surprise us. Althoughthe region is often regarded as peripheral to America's rise to globalascendancy, the United States has long been enmeshed in South Asia. For230 years, America's engagement with India, Afghanistan and Pakistan hasbeen characterized by short-term thinking and unintended consequences.

Beginning with American traders in India in the eighteenth century, theregion has become a locus for American efforts-secular and religious-to remake the world in its image. Even as South Asia has undergonetumultuous and tremendous changes from colonialism to the world wars,the Cold War and globalization, the United States has been a crucial playerin regional affairs. The definitive history of US involvement in South Asia,The Most Dangerous Place presents a gripping account of America'spolitical and strategic, economic and cultural presence in the region. Byilluminating the patterns of the past, this sweeping history also throwslight on the challenges of the future.
