`So different from almost all others written on the topic... It reflects the author's commitment, critical mind and hard work... engagingly provocative style... I would love to see it used in classrooms at the graduate (MA) level in all Pakistani universities... I am so pleased that Oxford University Press has published it in paperback.'
