Recommended for: travel in exotic places
Read in January, 2007

Robert Young Pelton, given the risks he's taken, should no longer be alive. If you want to know about Chechnya, Kosovo, Iran, Liberia, Peru, Colombia, Myanmar; the political, military, ethnic, tribal players in those places; the weapons they use, where the mines are, which diseases to prepare for, etc...read this book. It's more like an encyclopedia of global conflict, but written to read like a travel book. It was allegedly on the CIA's required reading list. It's very factual, but sarcastic. I'll probably order the updated edition.
