Pakistan: a new history

Record type: Book

The study centres on Pakistan's many failures- the collapse of stable governance, the drop in positive political and economic development and argues that they were not pre-ordained. Such a fatalistic reading does not respect the complexity of historical events, individual actors and the state's rich resources. Such an awareness makes it clear that favourable opportunities remain for Pakistan, in which the state has a chance to reclaim its priorities and institutions and re-establish political and economic sustainablity.
