PAKISTAN: The Consolidation of a Nation

Email this review


Where lay the fault"" in political philosophy which would permit the turbulence that characterized the first fifteen years of Pakistani independence? The author gives the backgrounds of the top architects of the rise of Muslim religious nationalism and describes the effects of WW II on the emerging nation. He shows why the diversities out of which the new country was created resulted in linguistic, fiscal, and administrative problems of such formidable proportions. The author is an instructor in Government at Columbia University and based the book on field research in Pakistan.
