Editorial Reviews

Review

"...argued with impressive skill and careful scholarship based on legal archives, published sources, and interviews." American Historial Review

"Newberg, a political scientist, has written a fascinating account of the delicate role played by the courts of Pakistan in mediating the relationship between state and society in a country faced by a history of civil unrest, social tension, and the absence of a constitutional consensus. ...clearly written...Newberg's book will be of interest to lawyers, judges, scholars, and politicians and is a major contribution to Pakistan studies." Choice

"This book is essential for anyone seeking to understand Pakistan. ...[Newberg's] study of how protagonists have tried to use the courts, and with what effects, conveys a keen appreciation of the predicaments of Pakistan and Pakistanis." Robin Jeffrey, Law & History Review

Book Description

In a penetrating and original study of the relationship between state and civil society in Pakistan, this work demonstrates how, over the course of almost five decades, the courts have influenced the development of its constitutions and the structure of the state.
