This book is a collection of papers commissioned for the 2010 Aspen Strategy Group workshop. This bipartisan, high-level examination of American interests in the region outlines geopolitical realities that challenge stability in the region and identifies policy strategies to confront them. The papers enclosed address such topics as the balance of power in South Asia, the US mission in Afghanistan, an evaluation of American foreign aid, relations between India and Pakistan, and an analysis of the future in this incredibly important region.
