    When we see the news about fundamentalist Muslims, India, Pakistan 9 11, we often simplify the problem This book surveys the religions of Southern Asia, the effect of aggression between groups and the history that has evolved as a result It is a way to learnabout why this is a problem with no good or bad guys, why we should be concerned and why politicians can not find a simple solution that brings peace.
