Clearly the American cannot fully understand what we are and have been doing in Afghanistan without a background in the history and recent events of Pakistan. I had just finished reading Holy War Inc and then read Jones Pakistan and they are such an obvious pair. What I especially like about the book is the chapter Nationalism that shows how the influx of Indians at partition affected people already living in Pakistan, and also the independence movements within the region.Remember, as a country Pakistan is only 65 years old. When the US was 65 we had just finished a Civil war over many of the same issues. A nice short summary with thumbnails of the past rulers and chapters on the Bomb and the Army.
