"[Husain Haqqani] brings impressive credentials to the task of analyzing his native land, including a personal acquaintanceship with many of the key military and political personalities of the past two decades." Alex Alexiev, Center for Security Policy, Commentary, 12/1/2005
"a notable contribution to scholarship on South Asia" Kapil Gupta, Foreign Service Journal
"In this cogent, well-informed and extraordinarily informative book, Husain Haqqani describes in detail the unholy alliance between Islamists and military officers that has shaped Pakistan's past and may well determine its future. An important and disturbing tale, deftly told." Andrew J. Bacevich, author of THE NEW AMERICAN MILITARISM
"A well-written and authoritative account from someone who knows Pakistani politics from the inside." Peter Bergen, CNN Terrorism Analyst and author of HOLY WAR, INC.
"We are in Husain Haqqani's debt for providing the authoritative account of the linkages between Pakistan's powerful Islamists and its professional army.... This brilliantly researched and written book should be required reading for anyone who wishes to understand this increasingly important state." Stephen P. Cohen, Brookings Institution, and author of THE IDEA OF PAKISTAN
"Husain Haqqani has seen Pakistani politics close up. But his book is much more than a memoir: Haqqaani has produced a provocative and controversial history revealing the depth of the links between the army and the Islamic radicals. Required reading." Owen Bennett-Jones, BBC, and author of PAKISTAN: THE EYE OF THE STORM
"Husain Haqqani has written the most comprehensive account of the role of religion and the army in Pakistan's tangled history. It makes for fascinating and sobering reading. The challenge of maintaining a 'moderate Islamic' identicy at a time of national insecurity and religious passion remains one of the central problems confrontinc any Pakistan government." Teresita Schaffer, CSIS, and former U.S. Ambassador and Assistant Secretary of State for South Asia
Husain Haqqani is a visiting scholar in the South Asia Project at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and an associate professor of International Relations at Boston University. He is former adviser to Pakistani prime ministers, and has served as Pakistan's ambassador to Sri Lanka.
