Inside An Elusive Mind: Prabhakaran
Inside An Elusive Mind: Prabhakaran
Description
From the Jacket:

Twenty years after he took measured steps into the world of violent sub-nationalism, Velupillai Prabhakaran of Sri Lanka has become of the world's most ruthless separatist leaders. not even 50 yet, he is unrivaled in his sinister influence over a nation's fate. since 1983 he has lorded over a secessionist movement that has lead to at least a dozen cold-blooded political assassinations, several internecine murders, ten of suicide bombings and over 60,000 deaths even as it has created perhaps the world's most well-oiled fighting apparatus that would qualify as a de facto military anywhere.

Prabhakaran's fiercely loyal outfit Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, or LTTE, has been fighting to carve a separate Tamil nation out of the tropical Indian Ocean island nation of Sri Lanka. The LTTE has been designated a terrorist organization or put on the terror list in countries ranging from the United States to India. Prabhakaran himself is one of the most wanted men in the world.
