Pakistan: The Long View

Edited by Lawrence Ziring, Ralph Braibanti, and W. Howard Wr
Duke University Press, 1977
485 pp. $19.75

An excellent collection of essays on Pakistan. Ziring's introduction is particularly thoughtful. He points to "a significant limitation of Pakistan's leaders," namely their "tendency to provoke but not control sub-national ethnic, regional and religious group controversy." Others also point to the failure of national integration. In a refreshingly candid appraisal of Pakistan's foreign policy, William Barnds notes how surprising it is that so poor a country should have sought security through confrontation rather than accommodation with a neighbor several times its size.
