Pakistan at the Crossroads

Pakistan at the Crossroads

Domestic Dynamics and External Pressures


"In Pakistan at the Crossroads, top international scholars assess Pakistan's politics, economics and the challenges faced by its civil and military leaders domestically and diplomatically. Contributors examine the state's handling of internal threats, tensions between civilians and the military, strategies of political parties, police and law enforcement reform, trends in judicial activism, the rise of border conflicts, economic challenges, financial entanglements with foreign powers, and diplomatic relations with India, China, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and the United States. This volume is critical to grasping the sophisticated interplay of internal and external forces complicating the country's recent trajectory."
