Pakistan: A Modern Historyby Ian Talbot
In its 50 years of existence, Pakistan has been considered more or less a stepchild of India. At this time of its golden jubilee, it is a complex plural society experiencing rapid change. Here historian Ian Talbot attempts to clarify why democracy has succeeded in India, while Pakistan has been subject to long periods of authoritarianism.
