'This book has remarkable potential for infusing Asian themes into academic curriculums...a topic of great interest and importance.' Dr. Abdul Jabbar, "Choice, Education About Asia" 'Jaffrelot and his distinguished team make clear that Musharraf's attitude to the Islamist agenda is fraught with ambiguity and irony.' "International Affairs " " A History of Pakistan and its Origins" is a comprehensive, detailed and fully up-to-date study of one of the most diverse, volatile and strategically significant countries in the world today. Born in turmoil barely half a century ago, Pakistan seems to be in an interminable pursuit of its own identity and at the same time finds itself a pivotal player in world politics. Its short existence has witnessed much: four coups d'etat; the rise of Islam as a power; tensions between ethnic, religious and separatist movements; the Kashmir conflict and the near-constant war footing with India. Written by an internationally renowned team of scholars, A History of Pakistan and its Origins covers historical, social, economic, political and religious aspects of this fascinating country and includes an up-to-date and in-depth analysis of recent events. It will appeal to experts, students and general readers alike.

Although Pakistan may be a new state in an historical context, it possesses an ancient legacy and culture. This volume examines the history of Pakistan from its archaeological heritage and origins in the Islamic civilization in South Asia to its political, economic, and social characteristics since 1947. The dynamics of its volatile history have been conditioned by its chequered constitutional development. It has produced vivid and forceful leaders, both civilian and military, from the Bhuttos-Zulfikar Ali and his daughter Benazir-to the string of military rulers who have governed the country, namely, Ayub Khan, Yahya Khan, Zia ul-Haq, and the last military dictator, Pervez Musharraf. Religious and class differences and regional forces tear at the fabric of the nation and hinder the development of a stable democratic regime. In spite of these persistent retrograde forces, there is a remarkable commitment among the progressives and the educated of the country to move it forward. Pakistan possesses a remarkable history through its interplay of regional and economics forces, through wars and civil wars, through being a 'Front-Line State', and through nuclear confrontations in the form of nuclear tests performed by Pakistan as well as its neighbour India. This volume is a rich and authoritative guide to those turbulent decades as well as to the history of the Indian subcontinent.

The first book to explore the modern history of Islam in South Asia The first modern state to be founded in the name of Islam, Pakistan was the largest Muslim country in the world at the time of its establishment in 1947. Today it is the second-most populous, after Indonesia. Islam in Pakistan is the first comprehensive book to explore Islam's evolution in this region over the past century and a half, from the British colonial era to the present day. Muhammad Qasim Zaman presents a rich historical account of this major Muslim nation, insights into the rise and gradual decline of Islamic modernist thought in the South Asian region, and an understanding of how Islam has fared in the contemporary world. Much attention has been given to Pakistan's role in sustaining the Afghan struggle against the Soviet occupation in the 1980s, in the growth of the Taliban in the 1990s, and in the War on Terror after 9/11. But as Zaman shows, the nation's significance in matters relating to Islam has much deeper roots. Since the late nineteenth century, South Asia has witnessed important initiatives toward rethinking core Islamic texts and traditions in the interest of their compatibility with the imperatives of modern life. Traditionalist scholars and their institutions, too, have had a prominent presence in the region, as have Islamism and Sufism. Pakistan did not merely inherit these and other aspects of Islam. Rather, it has been and remains a site of intense contestation over Islam's public place, meaning, and interpretation. Examining how facets of Islam have been pivotal in Pakistani history, Islam in Pakistan offers sweeping perspectives on what constitutes an Islamic state.
