Sleepwalking to Surrender

Dealing with Terrorism in Pakistan

Khaled Ahmed
Select Preferred Format

Khaled Ahmed is Pakistan’s most respected columnist, and his formidable expertise on the ideologies of extremism is internationally acknowledged. In Sleepwalking to Surrender he explores why, despite the horrifying toll that terrorism has taken on Pakistan, the civil and military establishments continue to uphold a variety of conspiracy theories in place of the facts on the ground. In a situation where the writ of the state is fraying in the face of Talibanal-Qaeda terror, it continues to view the USA and India as its designated enemies, rather than the extremists holding the state to ransom.
In this powerful and insightful analysis of the state of Pakistan today, Ahmed examines a wide spectrum of events, ideologies and personalities and appraises the portents for the future.
