Editorial Reviews


`Mr Shahid M. Amin has ventured to state in no uncertain terms the quixotic peculiarities and paradoxes of our past leaderships (of all hues) and indeed the quirks of our national psyche. Overcoming these deficiencies and dumping the 'excess baggage' will present the biggest challenges in the 'reappraisal' visualised by the vastly experienced and well-meaning former diplomat.' Khawaja Manzer Amin, The Nation on Sunday, Dec 00

`The book in hand, I akistan's Foreign Policy: A Reappraisal, takes a look - a long, hard look, that is - at the merits and demerits of the national foreign policy as conceived and practised by all who found themselves at the helm of affairs one after the other. With almost four decades of first-hand experience in international diplomacy, the author, Shahid M. Amin, certainly has the right credentials to take up such a gruelling assignment.' Humair Ishiaq, Star Weekend, 09/12/00.

`a very candid account of the various ups and downs that our foreign policy has gone through since 1947.' Humair Ishiaq, Star Weekend, 09/12/00.

`Shahid Amin's book ... makes a useful contribution to the discussion of an increasingly controversial subject.' Iqbal Akhund, Dawn 30/01/01. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

By Thomas Mitchell on December 30, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a primer on Pakistani foreign policy by a retired Pakistani diplomat. It has an excellent chapter on relations with the Arab world and the Muslim world, but on Pakistan's most important bilateral ties--with the United States and China, it is weak. Wait for Haqqani's book on U.S.-Pakistani relations.
