Description: Author’s analysis of prevailing situation in Balochistan is very pragmatic and convincing. Role of various internal and external actors in the conflict has been presented in a very logical and persuasive manner. Scrutiny of the role of natural resources of Balochistan and their linkage with the conflict is an absolutely new dimension which has never been explored by any foreign and domestic writer so far. This makes this book unparalleled and unique. Author’s conclusions with respect to the dominance of human greed or grievances are based on in-depth research encompassing different dimensions of life in Balochistan. His recommendations for arresting situation are very pragmatic, realistic and appealing. It seems to be clear that most important attribute under the way forward to address the real problem of Balochistan and to resolve the outstanding conflicts is the firm expression of the political will of the government which should be clearly felt, understood and supported by the people of the province. This will lead towards restoration of confidence which is the basic necessity of any society. I would suggest that people at the helms of the affair at federal and provincial level must make use of these recommendations for lasting peace in Balochistan.
