Editorial Reviews


Intellectually acute, impressively researched, and strongly argued.

(Anatol Lieven The American Prospect)

A scholarly and erudite study of the competition to define and establish a "national" identity for Pakistan.

(Robert Nichols H-Asia)

Thought-provoking... Those interested in helping shape the country's future will come away understanding why now is the time to move on with clarity.Middle East Journal

(Shabana Fayyaz Middle East Journal 1900-01-00)

A well documented, provocative study...of considerable interest to scholars and foreign policy specialists.

(Choice 1900-01-00)


Rich and multifaceted, this book's focus on the uncertainties regarding Islam as a key feature of Pakistan's national identity represents an important theoretical innovation-one that takes us well beyond the narrow view that the politics of Pakistan can be understood apart from engaging with the contested terms of Islam.

(Matthew Nelson, author of In the Shadow of Shari'ah: Islam, Islamic Law, and Democracy in Pakistan)
