THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS PLACES

Author: Robert Young Pelton

If commando training and outdoor survival are for you, this travel guide to the world's hot spots, war zones and forbidden regions just may save your life. This totally unique book, filled with ground reports and anecdotes, covers everything from land mines, terrorism and crime to wars and drugs.

An underground classic among the CIA, mujahadeen, special forces, NGOs, and savvy adventurers, Dangerous Places has become the de facto standard in understanding the groups, the players, the places, and tensions that fuel conflicts around the world. Pelton and his contributors tell it like it is in a brutally honest and personal style that delivers crisp, insightful, and useful information. Dangerous Places gives the scoop when the media and guidebooks -- and even governments -- won't dare. The ground truth and hard-won experience inside this book will open your eyes and may save your life.

In addition to the exclusive first-person reports and survival tips, Dangerous Places includes contacts for rescue organizations, environmental groups, political activists (including rebel groups), training schools in outdoor survival, commando techniques, and other potentially life-saving advice.

Whether you're an armchair traveller or a die-hard explorer, this is a ticket to the white-knuckle pursuit of adventure...wherever it may be.
