Pakistan: The Long View
Pakistan: The Long View
Edited by Lawrence Ziring, Ralph Braibanti, and W. Howard Wr
Duke University Press, 1977, 485 pp

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.
