At the Crosscurrent of History
This controversial book explores one nation's journey from the margins of history to the centre of the world stage. Tracing the development of the country from its birth in 1947 to the present day, Ziring explores how a country once envisaged as a secular model for the Muslim world has been gripped by a form of radical Islamic fundamentalism. Focusing on the links between what is going on within Pakistan and its relationships with key foreign powers such as the US, this unique account portrays an unstable nation locked in a myriad of struggles.
