Sidestepping easy headlines to identify Pakistan's true dangers, this volume revisits the major turning points and trends of Pakistani history over the past six decades, focusing on the increasing entrenchment of Pakistan's army in its political and economic arenas; the complex role of Islam in public life; the tensions between central and local identities and democratic impulses; and the affect of geopolitical influences on domestic policy and development.

While Ian Talbot's study centers on Pakistan's many failures -- the collapse of stable governance, the drop in positive political and economic development, and, most of all, the unrealized goal of securing a separate Muslim state -- his text unequivocally affirms Pakistan's potential for a positive reawakening. These failures were not preordained, Talbot agues, and such a fatalistic reading does not respect the complexity of historical events, individual actors, and the state's own rich resources.

Talbot's sensitive historical approach makes it clear that favorable opportunities still remain for Pakistan, in which the state has a chance to reclaim its priorities and institutions and reestablish political and economic sustainability.

Start your review of Pakistan: A New History. Oct 14, Saurabh rated it liked it. Not really a "New History" as much as a commentary on events. OK if you're wanting to refresh yourself with things that happened, but there is little here beyond the conventional narrative Mar 04, Mahwish rated it it was amazing.

Mar 31, Mubbashir Hussain rated it really liked it. Unbiased, comprehensive and easy to read. There was hardly a contour in the Pakistani politics which was left untouched in this book. This is a complete, and well-researched work untill Abbottabad episode For those who are aspiring for civil services, this book is a must-read.

The book is an objective analysis of misfortunes of Pakitsan. It explains how institutions, driven by self-interests, never enabled the system to deliver social justice and egalitarianism promised by its founder. Fun Unbiased, comprehensive and easy to read. Fundamental flaws in political activism right from the creation of Muslim League and its continued legacy after partition were highlighted. Political, bureaucratic, military, and at times judicial elite has supported each other for power-sharing, and this process never enabled masses to be empowered.

Epilogue of the book is a must-read. It provides a recipe for a brighter future of the country, or at least to save itself in the wake of new challenges. All in all, a brilliant work. Apr 05, Bookscache rated it really liked it. A must read. Oct 24, Abdullah AK rated it it was amazing.
