Pakistan: Between Mosque and Military Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Among U.S. allies in the war against terrorism, Pakistan cannot be easily characterized as either friend or foe. Nuclear-armed Pakistan is an important center of radical Islamic ideas and groups. Since 9/11, the selective cooperation of president General Pervez Musharraf in sharing intelligence with the United States and apprehending al Qaeda members has led to the assumption that Pakistan might be ready to give up its longstanding ties with radical Islam. But Pakistans status as an Islamic ideological state is closely linked with the Pakistani elites worldview and the praetorian ambitions of its military. This book analyzes the origins of the relationships between Islamist groups and Pakistans military, and explores the nations quest for identity and security. Tracing how the military has sought U.S. support by making itself useful for concerns of the momentwhile continuing to strengthen the mosque-military alliance within PakistanHaqqani offers an alternative view of political developments since the countrys independence in 1947.

Book News Annotation:

Tracing political developments in Pakistan from the deliberately vague ideological justifications the Muslim League's Muhhamad Ali Jinnah employed in calling for the formation of Pakistan to the present time, Haqqani (a former advisor to three Pakistani prime ministers and now a professor of international relations at Boston U.) analyzes the uneasy political alliance between the military and Islamists that has developed over the years and now poses unique challenges for the American "War on Terror" and relations with South Asia. Distributed in the US by Brookings Institution Press.

Synopsis:

Because of its cooperation with the United States since 9/11, Pakistan is thought to be ready to give up its longstanding ties with radical Islam. But its status as an ideological Islamic state is closely linked with the Pakistani elite's worldview and the praetorian ambitions of its military. This book analyzes the relationships between Islamist groups and Pakistan's military. Tracing how the military has sought U.S. support by making itself useful for concerns of the moment--while continuing to strengthen the mosque-military alliance within Pakistan--Haqqani offers an alternative view of political developments since the country's independence in 1947.
