Reimagining Pakistan: Transforming a Dysfunctional Nuclear State

Husain Haqqani (Author)

Pakistan has meant different things to different people since its birth seven decades ago. Armed with nuclear weapons and dominated by the military and militants, it is variously described around the world as dangerous, unstable, a terrorist incubator and the land of the intolerant. Much of Pakistans dysfunction is attributable to an ideology tied to religion and to hostility with the country out of which it was carved out India. But 95 per cent of Pakistans 210 million people were born after Partition, as Pakistanis, and cannot easily give up on their home. In his book, Husain Haqqani; one of the most important commentators on Pakistan in the world today; calls for a bold re-conceptualization of the country. Reimagining Pakistan offers a candid discussion of Pakistans origins and its current failings, with suggestions for reconsidering its ideology, and identifies a national purpose greater than the rivalry with India. With the additional Afterword he has brought the narrative up to date.
