Established in the wake of the Indo-Pakistani War of 1947-48 by British
officer Major General Robert Cawthorne, then Deputy Chief of Staff in
the Pakistan Army, Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) for
years remained an under-developed and obscure agency. In 1979, the
organization's growing importance was felt during the Soviet war in
Afghanistan, as it worked hand in glove with the CIA to support the
mujahideen resistance, but its activities received little coverage in
Offering fresh insights into the ISI based on intimate knowledge of its inner workings and key individuals, this startlingly original and provocative book uncovers the hitherto shady world of Pakistan's secret service.
