Description:

Stephen Cohen updates his critically acclaimed book with a discerning view of significant recent events in the region, particularly the devastating earthquake in Kashmir and its after affects. The quake killed over 70,000 people and left another 3 million homeless in one of the most remote, inhospitable parts of the world. Cohen observes how the catastrophic event has affected Pakistans political, military, and economic structures, as well as its relationships with other countries. Praise for the previous edition: " A lucid, penetrating and brilliantly constructed book on the state and nation of Pakistan. Cohen, an old South Asia hand, brings to the fore all his knowledge and expertise of one of America's most important allies in the war against terror." Choice " Cohens facts are indisputable, his logic cold and clear, and his omissions deliberate and meaningful." Foreign Affairs " A singularly successful effort to explain Pakistan. . . . The intellectual power and rare insight with which the book breaks through the complexity of the subject rivals that of classics that have explained other societies posing a comparable challenge to understanding." Middle East Journal " Cohen knows Pakistan well and his analysis is very perceptive." Newsline (Karachi, Pakistan) " A personal, perceptive, and policy-oriented study of Pakistan. This is an important work, by a leading expert of South Asia." Economic and Political Weekly (India) Book Review " Cohens survey of how the country has developed and why it is at the crossroads it is now is most insightful and useful. A first class primer and more as I commence my work." David B. Collins, highcommissioner of Canada, Islamabad
