Description: This volume comprises articles and essays dealing with the deep-seated political problems faced by Pakistan since independence. The post-colonial state and society of Pakistan faced crises of ideology, identity, national integration and democracy, all, in one way or the other, rooted in the pre-colonial social formation and state structure. The author has discussed in detail the connectivity between Pakistan’s past and present, thus constructing a meaningful dialogue between history and politics of the country. The volume, it is hoped, would help understand many of the problems Pakistan has faced since her birth. It may also help find solutions for the issues highlighted and discussed in detail. Written objectively and with an in-depth understanding of history and politics, the articles included in the anthology would be of interest for the scholars, researchers and students of history, politics and Pakistan Studies.
