Roots of Confrontation in South Asia

By Stanley Wolpert
Oxford University Press, 1982
222 pp. $14.95

A prominent historian takes a dim view of U.S. policy in South Asia, which he sees as having oscillated between "inept intervention" and "a total abdication of constructive responsibility." He calls for a Geneva conference on Afghanistan (although he doesn't say how to get the Soviets to come) and undiminished pressure against the Russians until they withdraw.
