The exchange of ideas, goods, and people between Pakistan and the far-flung reaches of the world shape the experience of Pakistani Muslims beyond geographical and cultural continuity with reference to global political representations. Based on empirical research conducted by scholars from across disciplines, this collection investigates the political public sphere, Kashmir, religious leadership, and women. It demonstrates the multidirectional flow of ideas and people creating the social landscape of Pakistanis and Diaspora globally.

About the Author:

Marta Bolognani is a Researcher at the Centre for the Study of Ethnicity and Citizenship at the University of Bristol. She received her PhD from Leeds University with a thesis that was later published as Crime and Muslim Britain: Race, Culture, and the Politics of Criminology among British Pakistanis (2009). She was Head of Sociology, Criminology, and Popular Culture at the University of Wales Institute in Cardiff between 2008 and 2009, after returning from Pakistan where she had taught Anthropology and Sociology at the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) between 2006 and 2008. She is the General Secretary of the Muslims in Britain Research Network and is part of the Pakistan Studies Group, for which she is one of the organizers of the annual ‘Pakistan Workshop.’
Stephen M. Lyon is a Senior Lecturer in Anthropology at Durham University. He is the author of An Anthropological Analysis of Local Politics and Patronage in a Pakistani Village (2004) and has published numerous articles on conflict management and politics in Pakistan. He continues to research the role of new information technologies on political action in Pakistan, particularly the impact of cell phones and the internet on democratization movements within the country.

Review:

“Provides innovative engagement with issues of politics, culture, and society informing Pakistani identity within and outside Pakistan. Pakistan can no longer be studied and evaluated as a contained national territorial identity; it is produced in multiple spaces—public and private, within and outside the national state. Each production has its unique history and ramifying implications and multiple imaginations of Pakistani identity are evolving and taking shape. The confrontation of religious leaders or the 'fighting mullhas' with the Pakistan state alongside accommodations of Islamic welfare organizations in the UK bring to light the arduous task of developing a Pakistani identity that is Islamic and modern simultaneously.”—Yasmin Saikia, Hardt-Nickachos Chair in Peace Studies and Professor of History, Arizona State University  “An important collection of intellectually stimulating, research-driven works. The authors highlight the dialectic relationship that exists between Pakistanis and those of Pakistani origin and bring forth the histories, local socio-political dynamics, and transnational connections that play a role in shaping their lives and informing their actions. Examining themes that are both common and relevant, the work is grounded in rigorous scholarship and deftly sidesteps the all too common trap of essentialism by presenting nuanced and complex accounts that are also highly readable. This compilation is a ‘must read’ for anyone interested in acquiring a three dimensional understanding of the lives of Pakistanis and the Diaspora, and the multiple intersecting factors that inform them.”—Sadaf Ahmad, author of Transforming Faith: The Story of Al-Huda and Islamic Revivalism Among Urban Pakistani Women
