9780062737380: The World's Most Dangerous Places

Whether you are traveling to Afghanistan or within the U.S., Robert Young Pelton takes you where the timid fear to tread -- straight into the heart of the world's forbidden, lethal, and even criminal places -- giving you all you need to know to survive the experience.

Featuring more than 30 countries, The World's Most Dangerous Places reveals their hidden dangers, including everything from diseases, land mines, and kidnapping to mercenaries, mujahedin, and militias. With firsthand accounts of breathtaking adventure in these hazardous locations, Pelton provides indispensable information on 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 traveler or a die-hard explorer, The World's Most Dangerous Places is your ticket to the white-knuckle pursuit of adventure...wherever it may be.

Review:

The indispensable guide for the intrepid adventurer -- a book some governments don't want you to read. Pelton, a professional adventurer, and Aral, an international war correspondent, have created the only travel guide to danger and adventure. Everything you need to know about the world's hot spots -- Bosnia-Herzegovina, Liberia, Rwanda, Peru -- is right here, from the inoculations required and dangerous holidays to pencil onto your calendar to the addresses of intelligence organizations and political activist groups. If you're raring to go where angels fear to tread, this book could save your life.
