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.
