Description : After The Assassination Of Benazir Bhutto, Pakistan Stands On The Edge Of An Abyss Into Which It May Plunge The World. As This Nuclear Power Nation, The Front Line Of The West&Rsquo;S Struggle Against Al Qaeda, Enters The Worst Political Crisis In Its History, Zahid Hussain&Rsquo;S Acclaimed And Updated Book Unravels The Key Questions: Who Really Controls The Country? Will Pakistan Be Talibanized? Has Al Qaeda Infiltrated The State? After 9/11, Pakistan&Rsquo;S Controversial President, Pervez Musharraf Stunned The World By Announcing His Support For America&Rsquo;S &Lsquo;War On Terror&Rsquo;. But In Pakistan, As Zahid Hussain Reveals, Nothing Is As It Seems. The Author Documents For The First Time In Detail The Incestuous Relationship Between Pakistan&Rsquo;S Jihadis And Its All-Powerful Military Intelligence Agency&Mdash;The Isi. He Penetrates The Jihadi Networks, Revealing Their Sources Of Funding, And Their Links With The Taliban And Al Qaeda, And Based On Exclusive Interviews With Key Players, He Shows Us The Fall-Out From Musharraf&Rsquo;S Momentous Decision To Support America. From The Dangerous Mountain Passes Of Waziristan To The Mess Tables Of Rawalpindi And The Sectarian Madrassas Of The Punjab, Hussain Portrays A Country Which Was Already Seething With Unrest Before Political Violence Claimed Its Highest Profile Victim In December 2007. As The Author Shows, Whoever Was Behind The Assassination Of Benazir Bhutto, Its Main Effect Has Been To Accelerate The Country&Rsquo;S Fragmentation, Creating A Level Of Uncertainty And Chaos From Which Only Extremists And Terrorists Can Benefit. Whatever Lies In Wait For Pakistan&Mdash;Talibanization, Civil War Or Worse&Mdash;It Will Have Grave Implications For The Entire World.

Description : The Idea Of Creating A Separate State For The Muslims Of The Indian Sub-Continent Was Conceived And Promoted By The Poet And Philosopher, Dr. Mohammed Iqbal In 1930 And Was Incorporated In The Programme Of The Muslim League In 1940 Through The Famous Lahore Resolution Of The 23Rd March. Pakistan Came Into Being As An Independent Sovereign State On August 14, 1947, Made Up Of Areas Where The Majority Of Population Professed Islam And Which Were Situated In The North-West And North-East Of The Sub-Continent.In An Interview To Doon Campbell, Reuter S Correspondent In Delhi In 1946, The Quaid-E-Azam, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, The Father Of The Nation, Stated Very Clearly That The New State Would Be A Modern Democratic State With A Parliamentary Form Of Government On The British Pattern. The Military Rule Of Pakistan By Ayub Khan And Yahaya Khan Continued For Thirteen Years Up Till The Secession Of East Pakistan And Formation Of Bangladesh. That Brought Zulfikar Ali Bhutto In Power. Four Years Later, The Military General Zia-Ul-Haqsanatched Power From Him. He Gave Internal Stability To The Country And Improved Its Image Abroad. It Was Unfortunate That He Died In An Air Crash Near Bhawalpur In August, 1988.Ghulam Ishaq Khan Succeeded Him As The President Of Pakistan. He Ordered The General Elections In The Country Which Brought Pakistan People S Party To Power And Benazir Bhutto Became The Prime Minister.It Is Indeed Encouraging That The General Election Of October 1993 Was Held In A Free And Fearless Atmosphere Brought Into Power Benazir Bhutto Again, The Pakistan People S Party In Coalition With Other Splinter Groups Forming The Government. Thus Pakistan Stands Today On The Threshold Of A Very Bright Future, With An Established Two-Party System Of The West Minister Model Under The Stewardship Of Two Young Leaders, Benazir Bhutto And Nawaz Sharif Of New Generation.The Present Study, Pakistan S March To Democracy And Liberalism Provides A Penetrating Account Of The Political Developments Spread Over Last Five Decades. It Is Both An Interesting And Instructive Study For Political Analysts At Home And Abroad To Foster Better Understanding Of Pakistan.

Description : "A must-read for anyone interested in the intrigue of politics in the most dangerous country on earth" (The Sunday Times) Read the unique insider's view of a country unfamiliar to a Western audience, seen through the eyes of the man set to become Pakistan's new Prime Minister. Born only five years after Pakistan was created in 1947, Imran Khan has lived his country's history. Undermined by a ruling elite, and unable to protect its people from the carnage of regular bombings from terrorists and its own ally, America, Pakistan has for years suffered from instability. Now Imran Khan and his own political party, the Tehreek-e-Insaf, offer a real political alternative for the people of Pakistan at a time when tension between Pakistan's government and the powerful military has reached dangerous new levels. How did this flashpoint of volatility and injustice come about? Pakistan: A Personal History provides a unique insider's view of a country unfamiliar to a western audience. Woven into this history we see how Imran Khan's personal life - his happy childhood in Lahore, his Oxford education, his extraordinary cricketing career, his marriage to Jemima Goldsmith, his mother's influence and that of his Islamic faith - inform both the historical narrativeandhis current philanthropic and political activities. It is at once absorbing and insightful, casting fresh light upon a country whose culture he believes is largely misunderstood by the West.

Description : In this book twelve respected specialists fully analyze the nation of Pakistan--looking at its external and internal powers-that-be, its people and its leadership. The frailties of this polyglot society and the tragedies of its uneasy democratic transition are put into perspective. The ethnic, ideological, and political characteristics of Pakistan are considered from a number of vantage points as the varied scholars relate the nation's past experiences with aberrations of Western-style democracy and ponder its prospects for the future.
