On 11 May 1998 the Indian government tested five nuclear devices some forty kilometres from Pokaran. Seventeen days later Pakistan tested nuclear devices of its own. About three months after the tests, Amitav Ghosh went to the Pokaran area, after which he visited Kashmir as part of the defence minister s entourage. He also went to the Siachen glacier in the Karakoram mountains where Indian and Pakistani soldiers have been exchanging fire since 1983. Ghosh then travelled through Pakistan and Nepal. Countdown is partly a result of these journeys and conversations with many hundreds of people of the subcontinent.

A high-tension espionage thriller as gripping as Frederick Forsyth's The Day of the Jackal, or Tom Clancy's The Hunt for Red October. A Soviet Agent is found dead inside an Israeli nuclear weapons stockpile so secret the United States doesn't know it exists. A Pershing missile that is guarded around the clock is hijacked from a maximum-security installation at a West German Air Force Base. The U.S.S. Indianapolis, a submarine on training maneuvers off the coast of Italy, suddenly ceases transmitting -- then vanishes without a trace. Two men are behind this deadly wave of terror. Colonel Valentin Baranov, the new head of the KGB, a man intent on destroying glasnost and rekindling the Cold War. And Arkady Kurshin, the ruthless assassin who is Baranov's finest weapon. To stop them, the CIA must turn to maverick agent Kirk McGarvey, a trained killer as deadly as Kurshin. Driven by a vendetta against Baranov, McGarvey stalks Kurshin across the face of Europe, determined to find him before the clock runs out on an act of terrorism so devastating it could alter the balance of world power forever. But a mole inside the Agency is monitoring McGarvery's every move. And the KGB has captured the woman McGavery has come to love...

Countdown puts forward the view that the total direction of our development, and the values on which it based, is wrong and leading towards a human and environmental catastrophe. The author identifies economics and economic growth as the main cause of this situation and suggests a new framework for wealth creation and distribution guided by a new science which he has named philonomics.
