David Gosling taught physics at Delhi's St Stephen's college in the ’60s. After stints in institutions like the East-West Center in Hawaii and World Council of Churches in Geneva, he was the principal of the prestigious Edwardes College, in Peshawar, for four years in the mid-2000s. Now, he has written a book on the troubled AfPak region, Frontier of Fear, providing a personal account of education and politics of this frontier region. The book is interesting because, unlike most, it is not by a security expert, diplomat or journalist. It will be out in India in a few weeks.

Anuj Bahri of the Delhi bookshop, Bahri and Sons, brokered the deal and it was murmured that Chauhan got an advance in the range of Rs 60 lakh.
