Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In recent years Pakistan has emerged as a major security concern for the United States. The acts of terrorism that originate in Pakistan and its culture of extremism cause serious apprehension for the international community as well. Pakistan's ability to combat extremism within its borders and its policy towards Afghanistan will also play a large role in determining the success of U.S. military actions in Afghanistan. This volume will be the first to deal with a variety of emerging security issues of the country and their regional and international implications.

This volume examines the issues of utmost importance for Pakistan's stability and strategic balance, and explains their significance from the global perspective. Each chapter in this book addresses specific security challenges of Pakistan, both domestic and international.

Book News Annotation:

Hasnat (Middle East Institute) provides a broad overview of Pakistan's national security concerns. He addresses the strategic location of Pakistan, domestic security issues arising out of state institutions and institutional instability; issues associated with the Balochistan province, particularly tribal discontent; issues associated with terrorism and extremism, including the anger arising out of civilian deaths from US drone bombings that have been expanded under Obama; the ongoing war between state forces and insurgents in the Federally Administrated Tribal Area of Waziristan; and the triangular (in)security relationship between Pakistan, Afghanistan, and the United States. Given the well-known preoccupation of Pakistani elites with India (a preoccupation that is reciprocated of course), this reviewer is surprised a more extensive discussion of Pakistani-Indian relations is not presented.

Synopsis:

This book details the domestic security concerns of Pakistan, encompassing the dangers of insurgencies, the effects of religious extremism and terrorism, and the malfunction of its political institutions.

Synopsis:

• Considers issues from a unique perspective, offering insightful, atypical arguments

• Establishes a clear connection between historic events in Pakistan's past that led to its present-day security threats

Synopsis:

• Maps and illustrations clarify key topics or historical events

• Bibliography contains books and articles of relevance

• Glossary defines key words and terms

Synopsis:

Pakistan has been destabilized by insurgencies largely because of the overspill of events in neighboring Afghanistan. Pakistan has also suffered a history of disputes with India over the last 50 years. As a country situated in an extremely volatile geographic location and armed with nuclear weaponry, Pakistan's effect on global security should not be taken lightly.
