The Idea of Pakistan by Stephen Philip Cohen
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Many observers have characterized Pakistan as a failed state, or even a "rogue" state, particularly for its support of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan prior to the September 11th terrorist attacks. This book examines the factors contributing to state failure and asks whether the dual identities of Pakistan-created as a homeland for Indian Muslims and as the world's first modern "Islamic" state-are viable in today's world.
