9780195790047: Pakistan: The Barren Years: The Viewpoint Editorials and Columns of Mazhar Ali Khan 1975-1992

The independent weekly Viewpoint was launched on Pakistan's Independence Day in 1975 with the intention of filling a void in the English language press. With the advent of the country's third Martial Law in 1977 Viewpoint evolved into a focus for pro-democracy dissent. Mazhar Ali's reasoned editorials and columns cover the crucial period that led up to Zia's coup d'état, the bleak years of martial law, the Afghan crisis, and the disappointing aftermath of military rule.

Review:

`The Viewpoint years were from 1975 to 1992. The editorials gathered in this volume are essential reading for a reasoned and analytical approach to that period. ... essential reading.'
Asian Affairs, June 2001

`A fine collection of the editorials and columns written by him during the period 1975-1992 ... Flipping through its pages, one is struck again and again by his sturdy espousal of the secular ideal'
A.G. Noorani, Frontline, 23/04/99

The book will definitely serve to preserve the legacy of a remarkable journalist and its brainchild publication which became a byword for reasoned criticism, providing balanced contemporary commentary on times wherein can be located the roots and branches of many ills that continue to plague
the country. Humair Ishtiaq/The Star 5/12/98
