Product Description

Christophe Jaffrelot is research director at the Centre d'Etudes et de Recherches Internationales (CERI) and Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS). He teaches South Asian politics at Sciences Po (Paris) and King's College (London). His books include The Hindu Nationalist Movement and Indian Politics, 1925 to 1990s (1999) Pakistan: Nationalism Without a Nation? (2002), A History of Pakistan and Its Origins (2004), and The Pakistan Paradox: Instability and Resilience (2015).

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.
In addition to ethnic strife in Baluchistan and Karachi, terrorist violence in Pakistan in response to the American-led military intervention in Afghanistan and in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas by means of drones, has reached an unprecedented level. Growing consensus among state leaders predicts that the nation's main security threats may come not from India but from its spiraling internal conflicts, though this realization may not sufficiently dissuade the Pakistani army from targeting the country's largest neighbor.
This volume is critical to grasping the sophisticated interplay of internal and external forces complicating the country's recent trajectory.
