New book: Ladakh and the Kashmir Valley

About the book:

“An exhilarating Himalayan journey: a mélange of personal experiences, geology, ancient histories, trade routes, the great flood, conflicting religions, politics, and militancy in one of the most volatile parts of the world, leading to the brink of war.”

It is relevant now due to the current lockdown in Kashmir and the dangerous standoff between India and Pakistan.

The eminent historian John Keay has written the Prologue and has sent me this encouraging comment: “Congratulations; this is a serious book, beautifully produced and full of bold insights. I shall treasure it, so professional.”

The book is now available online. It can only be obtained from this website (not Amazon, Waterstones etc.). Copies cost £33.70 including shipping via PayPal – UK only (£29 net).

Local collection by hand can be arranged.

228 pages beautifully printed on fine art paper. The text is supplemented by many b/w photographs by the author.
