From the Publisher'Of all the threatened or threatening countries in the world none is today more dangerously in the balance than Pakistan. Out of unrivalled experience Hilary Synnott has produced a thorough and admirably clear description of the background and dilemmas which face the government of Pakistan and therefore all those other countries which have a deep interest in its future.'
Douglas Hurd, former British Foreign Secretary
"This is an informative and well-written book. It is unusually clear-headed while, at the same time, remaining eminently compelling. It may not satisfy those with an interest in carefully calibrated or locally embedded policy recommendations. But, in my opinion, it should be read by anyone with an interest in the problem of ‘instability’ (and international responses to it) in the context of contemporary Pakistan." - Matthew J. Nelson, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, UK
'...A brilliant and badly needed analysis.... a superb job in making us see the reality and trends.'
‘… this book provides a superb overview of the volatile situation in Pakistan today, and tells a complicated story lucidly.’
Kris Srinivasan, The Telegraph, Calcutta, India
'Thanks to his experience, Synnott provides an exceptionally informative and detailed account of modern-day Pakistan.'
The International Spectator, Vol. 45, No. 3, September 2010, 161
