Drawing on observations from the streets and university classrooms and from personal interviews with lawyers, journalists, politicians, and military personnel, this riveting investigation examines the most compelling aspects of Pakistan’s culture and history. Written by an American journalist living in Pakistan, the issues and struggles of Pakistan and its people as the United States’s war on terror unfolds are addressed. This powerful report offers vivid descriptions of life in Lahore and humanizes the nation’s struggles by delving into every dimension of the Pakistani experience, including domestic politics; ethnic, regional, and sectarian fault lines; anti-Western and anti-Indian sentiments; and the border issues between Kashmir and Afghanistan.

An engaging work, the findings connect this volatile nation to its precarious place in the international realm.
