Pakistan: A Hard Country

by

Pakistan: A Hard Country Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the past decade Pakistan has become a country of immense importance to its region, the United States, and the world. With almost 200 million people, a 500,000-man army, nuclear weapons, and a large diaspora in Britain and North America, Pakistan is central to the hopes of jihadis and the fears of their enemies. Yet the greatest short-term threat to Pakistan is not Islamist insurgency as such, but the actions of the United States, and the greatest longterm threat is ecological change.

Anatol Lievens book is a magisterial investigation of this highly complex and often poorly understood country. Engagingly written, combining history and profound analysis with reportage from Lievens extensive travels as a journalist and academic, Pakistan: A Hard Country is both utterly compelling and deeply revealing.

Synopsis:

“Lievens eye for detail, command of subcontinental history, and old-fashioned shoe-leather reporting make this…an excellent primer on Pakistan.”—Wall Street Journal
