Description : 'By far the most insightful survey of Pakistan I have read in recent years . . . a vital book' Mohsin Hamid, New York Review of Books Pakistan is viewed by many as the most dangerous place in the world, a failing state racked by insurgence and instability. In this remarkable book Anatol Lieven, who lived and worked in Pakistan for many years, overturns the familiar image. Using hundreds of interviews with people whose views are rarely consulted - from soldiers and intelligence officers to village mullahs and rickshaw drivers - he shows that extremism is far weaker in Pakistan than we think, and that its people, history and traditions will frustrate any outsider's attempt to categorise the country. 'Brilliantly articulated and researched . . . Lieven is a wonderful writer. There are descriptions that a novelist might envy' Kamila Shamsie, The Times 'A much-needed book, written with deep understanding and affection for the country' Christina Lamb, Sunday Times 'Overturns many prejudices . . . so manifold and obdurate are the clichés about Pakistan that you periodically need a whole book to shatter them. Lieven's Pakistan is one such blow' Pankaj Mishra, Guardian 'Provides the reader with a real texture of the multi-dimensional nature of Pakistan's people' Ahmad Ali Khalid, Dawn

Description : THE WISDEN BOOK OF THE YEAR and THE CROSS SPORTS BOOK AWARDS CRICKET BOOK OF THE YEAR. The nation of Pakistan was born out of the trauma of Partition from India in 1947. Its cricket team evolved in the chaotic aftermath. Initially unrecognised, underfunded and weak, Pakistan's team grew to become a major force in world cricket. Since the early days of the Raj, cricket has been entwined with national identity and Pakistan's successes helped to define its status in the world. Defiant in defence, irresistible in attack, players such as A.H.Kardar, Fazal Mahmood, Wasim Akram and Imran Khan awed their contemporaries and inspired their successors. The story of Pakistan cricket is filled with triumph and tragedy. In recent years, it has been threatened by the same problems affecting Pakistan itself: fallout from the 'war on terror', sectarian violence, corruption, crises in health and education, and a shortage of effective leaders. For twenty years, Pakistan cricket has been stained by the scandalous behaviour of the players involved in match-fixing. Since 2009, the fear of violence has driven Pakistan's international cricket into exile. No one knows when it will return home. But Peter Oborne's narrative is also full of hope. For all its troubles, cricket gives all Pakistanis a chance to excel and express themselves, a sense of identity and a cause for pride in their country. Packed with first-hand recollections, and digging deep into political, social and cultural history, Wounded Tiger is a major study of sport and nationhood.

Description : PAKISTAN Muhammad Anwar and Ebad Baig The creation of Pakistan on August 14, 1947, was a rare and unprecedented event in the study of politics that the world has ever seen. However, the Indian leadership never accepted the creation of Pakistan, and its security remained threatened even after a long period of existence because of the Kashmir dispute, which was left unresolved at the time of the partition of the subcontinent. The worst happened when Pakistan’s founding father passed away on September 11, 1948, followed by the assassination of the first prime minister of Pakistan, Liaquat Ali Khan, on October 16, 1951. The weak and shrewd political leadership eventually paved the way for the military intervention, and Pakistan remained under the dictatorial governments for more than three decades between 1958 and 2008. As a result of the political void, Pakistan was dismembered in December 1971 by the direct Indian military action in East Pakistan while the United States played the role of a spectator. Despite the US duplicity in 1971, Pakistan remained engaged in fighting the US proxy war in Afghanistan since 1979 and was facing the fierce situation in the hands of the terrorists who were expressing their anger and revenge through bomb blasts and suicidal attacks all over the country. This book examines Pakistan’s journey through the turbulent waters of the history right from 1947 to 2012, pinpointing what went wrong during the whole passage and those responsible for the disasters that the Pakistani nation has to painfully endure continuously during all these years. This is to allow the military leaders to review and fix the institution burdened with the task of defending the homeland and the political leadership to walk through this mirror for making Pakistan a strong and modern Muslim state in the world in line with the vision of Mohammad Ali Jinnah.

Description : The Editor Maintains That India Had To Agree To Partition Under Compelling Circumstances. After India Got Independence, It Should Have Taken Steps To Undo The Mischief Of Our British Rulers. Things Would Have Been Much Easier Immediately After Partition, Particularly, When Pakistan Provided An Excuse To Us By Sending Its Forces In Kashmir. The Pakistan Army At That Time Was Weak And The Job Could Have Been Done At A Minimum Cost. The Second Opportunity Arose In 1965 When Pakistan Again Attacked Kashmir. The Third Opportunity Came In 1971 When Pakistani Forces Attacked India. But The Operation Now Would Be Much More Costlier In Terms Of Men And War Materials Because The Pakistan Has Built A Strong Army And Developed Nuclear Power Over The Long Period Provided To Them By India S Rulers. But This Cost May Still Be Less Than The Cost We Are Incurring From Continued Hostility And Cross Border Terrorism In The Form Of Continuous Military Deployment And Killings Of Civil And Military Persons.Pakistan Is Constantly Blaming India In All Regional And International Fora For Not Implementing The United Nations Resolution Regarding Holding Of Plebiscite In Jammu And Kashmir. In Fact, Pakistan Is Responsible For This Because It Has Failed To Withdraw Its Forces From Jammu And Kashmir Which Was A Condition For Holding Plebiscite According To The United Nations Resolution.The Editor Holds That India Should Drop No First Use Of Nuclear Weapons Policy Against A Country Which Repeatedly Threatens First Use Of Nuclear Weapons. The First Use Of Nuclear Weapons By Pakistan May Be So Massive And Widespread That It May Disable India To Use The Nuclear Weapon.If India Drops Its No First Use Option Of Nuclear Weapons, Pakistan Would Stop Blackmailing India And May Even Be Deterred Venturing Terrorism In India.The Volumes Include Viewpoints Of A Number Of Eminent Experts On Indo-Pak Relations. These Include Views Not Only Of Indian Experts But Also Of Pakistani Experts. The Volumes Contain Texts Of All The Documents In Original Relating To Indo-Pak Relations Since The Partition Of India In 1947. It Is Hoped That The Volumes Would Be Found Useful By The Students And Research Scholars Concerned With International Relations. The Volumes Would Also Be Useful To The Parliamentarians And Executives Of India And Pakistan Concerned With The Formulation And Execution Of Foreign Policy Of Their Country. Common Readers Interested In Indo-Pak Relations Would Also Find The Volumes Useful And Interesting. The Volumes Would Be Equally Useful For All Libraries, Officers Messes And Institutions Of Defence Services.

Description : In Sleepwalking to surrender [the author] explores, why, despite the horrifying toll that terrorism has taken on Pakistan, the civil and military establishments continue to uphold a variety of conspiracy theories in place of the facts on the ground. In a situation where the writ of the state is fraying in the face of Taliban-al-Qaeda terror, it continues to view the USA and India as its designated enemies, instead of the extremists holding the state to ransome.

Description : This book explores the unfinished India–Pakistan Trade normalisation agenda (building upon the themes covered in the book “India-Pakistan Trade: Strengthening Economic Relations” published by Springer in 2014) and discusses the steps that must be undertaken in order to move the bilateral engagement forward. Given the commencement of bilateral state-level talks and the Indian government’s emphasis on South Asian integration, it adds impetus to the trade liberalisation process, while also providing essential recommendations for policymakers in both countries. The unfinished agenda faces obstacles such as the list of items for which export from India to Pakistan continues to be restricted; lack of land borders and seamless cross-border transport services, which hampers the realisation of trade potential; negative reporting in the media, which influences traders’ perceptions; and the continued occurrence of informal trade resulting from inadequacies of formal trade relations. The book examines various sectors, including the agricultural, textiles, automotive and pharmaceutical industries, given their predominance on the list of restricted items for bilateral trade. It also covers studies on unconventional and under-researched themes concerning informal trade, informational barriers to India–Pakistan trade, and opening new land borders for trade – all of which can play a facilitating role in realizing the untapped trade potential between India and Pakistan. The book also includes the second round of the India–Pakistan trade perception survey, which identifies impediments to India–Pakistan bilateral trade and assesses the change in traders’ perceptions since the first round of the survey, which was published in 2014.

Description : This book tells the story of the tragic and often tormented relationship between the United States and Pakistan. Pakistan's internal troubles have already threatened US security and international peace, and Pakistan's rapidly growing population, nuclear arsenal, and relationships with China and India will continue to force it upon America's geostrategic map in new and important ways over the coming decades. This book explores the main trends in Pakistani society that will help determine its future; traces the wellsprings of Pakistani anti-American sentiment through the history of US-Pakistan relations from 1947 to 2001; assesses how Washington made and implemented policies regarding Pakistan since the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001; and analyzes how regional dynamics, especially the rise of China, will likely shape US-Pakistan relations. It concludes with three options for future US strategy, described as defensive insulation, military-first cooperation, and comprehensive cooperation.

Description : This book documents and highlights the Deobandi dimension of extremism and its implications for faith-based violence and terrorism. This dimension of radical Islam remains largely ignored or misunderstood in mainstream media and academic scholarship. The book addresses this gap. It also covers the Deobandi diaspora in the West and other countries and the role of its radical elements in transnational incidents of violence and terrorism. The specific identification of the radical Deobandi and Salafi identity of militants is useful to isolate them from the majority of peaceful Sunni and Shia Muslims. Such identification provides direction to governmental resources so they focus on those outfits, mosques, madrassas, charities, media and social medial channels that are associated with these ideologies. This book comes along at a time when there is a dire need for alternative and contextual discourses on terrorism.
