Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Yale, which presciently gave us Taliban, by Ahmed Rashid, now brings out a study of another crucial country in Central and South Asia. Former BBC correspondent Jones looks at the battle with India over Kashmir ("the single most significant reason for Pakistan's chronic instability") and argues that most Pakistanis want to live in a free and tolerant state, not a theocracy. He considers the future of General Pervez Musharraf's attempt to undo the "Islamization" initiated by his predecessor, General Mohammed Zia ul Haq. Illus.

From Library Journal

Pakistan emerges here as a nation divided religiously, ethnically, politically, and geopolitically. This thematic study of its 55-year history moves from the roots struck by founder Mohammed Ali Jinnah and the Muslim League at the time of independence in 1947 to its current leader, Gen. Pervez Musharraf. Along the way, Jones treats the bomb and India, the Kashmir dispute, the nation's ethnic and political divisions, its three wars with India, and its changing role from Taliban supporter to antagonist. Jones lived in Pakistan from 1998 to 2001 as a BBC correspondent and draws from his experiences to craft a well-written, insightful, and critical journalistic history. He concludes that even barring Musharraf's assassination, little realistic hope can be awarded Pakistan's future, given the depth of the society's social, religious, and political divisions. Highly recommended.
