Synopsis

This book describes the political history of Pakistan from the time of Partition to the Musharraf government. In considerable detail, the authors have described the main features and predominant trends. The aims and achievements of the successive governments are analyzed with particular attention to the interplay of socio-economic forces and interests. The country's foreign policy is examined in the context of the regional and global situation with special regard to the relations between Pakistan and the USSR/Russia. This is a serious, scholarly narrative regarding the life of the nation. The seven chapters of the book correspond to a specific historical period. The first chapter deals with the struggle for the creation of the new state and the forces driving its emergence. The second chapter analyzes the formative years up to the military coup of 1958, while the third chapter describes in detail the internal and foreign policy of the Ayub Khan administration. In the fourth chapter, the authors single out specific features of the Z.A. Bhutto administration (1971-1977), and in the fifth chapter, they deal with the decade-long rule of General Ziaul Haq.

The sixth chapter relates to the study of the 1988-1999 democratic interregnum. The last chapter details the policies during General Pervez Musharraf's rule of the country.
