Pakistan A Hard Country By Anatol Lieven
Title of the book is “Pakistan A Hard Country” Written by Anatol Lieven. In this book the author takes the reader on a revealing journey through that troubled country. Departing from a title that’s subtly misleading, because it appears to announce misfortunes befalling the country’s fragile state structure, the author, a professor of peacekeeping and Terrorism Studies at King’s school London and an professional on South Asia, decides instead to require a provocative detour by presenting Pakistan indeed as a weak state, however at a similar time a powerful society.
Throughout the book the analysis keeps balancing on this tightrope of competing definitions, attempting to make up a convincing case for the inner resilience of Pakistan. Download in pdf format to read offline.
