About this title


Examines the current volatile political complexion of Pakistan and the effects of President Zia's murder, the war in neighboring Afghanistan, and the booming heroin and weapons trades that threaten the stability of the nation

From Library Journal:

Pakistan has been in the headlines a lot lately with a superpower war on its border, the murder of its former president, and the election of female Islamic Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto. Journalist Duncan takes readers on an exciting journey of political discovery into the murkier side of Pakistani society--its banditry, its lucrative drug trafficking and arms smuggling, and its efficient, corrupt civil service, which cuts red tape to keep the government viable. Pakistanis are a vocal, politicized group (having been under martial law for 24 of their 41 years as a nation), and it remains to be seen whether Bhutto can withstand the pressures of this dynamic society. This is a good, basic overview, far better conceived and executived than Benazir Bhutto's Daughter of Destiny ( LJ 4/1/89). It should be a good investment for public and university libraries alike.
