PAKISTAN:
Unresolved Issues of State & Society
Today, Pakistan is an important participant in the Global War on Terror. There are, however, other
factors that are more permanent in nature. They make Pakistan a nation that has to be researched,
analysed and studied carefully by all those with a professional interest in its future development.
Pakistani society is a vibrant mixture of ideas and contradictions and this is mirrored in its institutions.
On the one hand, it has been subjected to a series of unrepentant military interventions while on the
other hand its people have retained strong democratic aspirations. The history of Pakistan is replete
with mass movements and civil right activities that have brought down the sturdiest regimes and per-
sonalities. By all accounts, Pakistan's strength remains its civil society. This was amply demonstrated
during the mass agitation for the restoration of judicial independence in the spring of 2007. However,
there remain a number of issues which are to be resolved. The authors of this book, all natives of
Pakistan's divergent provinces, view the subject through a variety of inter-disciplinary perspectives.
This book should not be seen as a chronological narration of events in Pakistan's 60-year history.
It is a critical statement of concerns about the complexities of Pakistani society. All the issues pre-
sented in the book pose a serious challenge to the nation's policy makers. If they are resolved
successfully, Pakistan will become a secure, stable and democratic state. If they are not resolved,
it will continue to hover on the brink of failure.

Charlie Wilson's War
In a little over a decade, two events have transformed the world we live in:
the collapse of the Soviet Union and the rise of militant Islam. Charlie
Wilsons War is the untold story behind the last battle of the Cold War and
how it fueled the new jihad.
George Crile tells how Charlie Wilson, a maverick congressman from east
Texas, conspired with a rogue CIA operative to launch the biggest, mean-
est, and most successful covert operation in the Agencys history.
In the early 1980s, after a Houston socialite turned Wilsons attention to
the ragged band of Afghan freedom fighters who continued, despite over-
whelming odds, to fight the Soviet invaders, the congressman became
passionate about their cause. At a time when Ronald Reagan faced a total
cutoff of funding for the Contra war, Wilson, who sat on the all-powerful
House Appropriations Committee, managed to procure hundreds of mil-
lions of dollars to support the mujahideen.
The arms were secretly procured and distributed with the aid of an out-of-
favor CIA operative, Gust Avrakotos, whose working-class Greek-
American background made him an anomaly among the Ivy League world
of American spies. Nicknamed Dr. Dirty, the blue-collar James Bond was
an aggressive agent who served on the front lines of the Cold War where
he learned how to stretch the Agencys rules to the breaking point.
Moving from the back rooms of the Capitol, to secret chambers at Langley,
to arms-dealers conventions, to the Khyber Pass, Charlie Wilsons War is
brilliantly reported and one of the most detailed and compulsively readable
accounts of the inside workings of the CIA ever written.

Fragments Of Grace
Washington Post's foreign correspondent and award-winning author
Pamela Constable has spent the better part of two decades traversing
global trouble spots, clocking more time in combat zones than most profes-
sional soldiers while reporting on societies struggling with dictatorship and
desperate poverty, revolution and religious strife. As she was reaching an
age when many women would be sending their children off to college,
Constable packed up her own life and signed on for a four-year stint in
South Asia as the Post's bureau chief. With lyrical prose and trenchant
analysis, 'Fragments of Grace' follows Constable as she deciphers the
obscure realities of the region's political turmoil and ethnic and religious
rivalries, while also reflecting on why she forsook a life of comfort for peri-
patetic truth-seeking quests in far-flung, dangerous lands.
Constable's book contains countless startling and poignant dispatches
from South Asia: stern Islamic clerics who rail against decadent Western
music but have never heard of Beethoven; a Pakistani woman whose
jealous husband carved off her face in the name of Islamic honour; a
dying man saved by Lord Hanuman after the most modern medical clinic
in New Delhi failed to revive him; a Nepalese shelter for young girls freed
from sexual bondage; and Sri Lankan censors attempting to limit an
American journalist's press freedom.
Constable never found the time to develop an exhaustive expertise on nuclear
doctrine, Islam, or Hinduism, but along the way she learned lessons that tran-
scend time and place, recognizing universal patterns of human need and
response in locales that bear little resemblance to each other.
She combines elements of memoir, travelogue, political history, and
social critique in her quest to discover human dignity and hope in the
lives of anonymous people struggling to survive in places that seem god-
forsaken. Compelling and inspirational, the narrative follows one woman's
search through the ruins for fragments of grace.

Contributors from India, Pakistan, and Kashmir explore the national and
sub national dimensions of the ongoing hostilities, the role of the interna-
tional community, and future prospects. The result is an informed overview
of the present state of affairs and a realistic examination of the potential
for peaceful resolution.
Musharaf's Pakistan,
Bush's America & The Middle East
The five years between 2001 and 2006 were momentous years in the history of
Pakistan, the United States and the Greater Middle East. This book chronicles some of
the major events that took place during this period. This book is not just about the
beginning of a century but about the beginning of history.
Human conflict is the common thread running throughout the book. This conflict did not
spring anew in the new century. The seeds had been sown in pdor conflicts. But the
way iii which the conflict evolved was unique and disturbing.
Pakistan, which had alternated between democracy and state racy for its half decade
of existence, succumbed once again to the latter. But what loomed most menacingly
over it were not the usual threats to civil liberties posed by militarism. It was the spec-
tre of a final conflict with India brought on by misguided jihadis who had been
reared by the military to fight external proxy wars in Afghanistan and Kashmir. In addi-
tion, there was the reality of ongoing domestic conflicts along the nations multiple fault
lines.
America, which adopted the mantle of global hyper power after the fall and splintering of
its erstwhile nemesis, the Soviet Union, was hit by a band of jihadis early on the morning
of September ii, 2001. In a fit of rage, it launched a war on Afghanistan for which there
was much global sympathy. But the subsequent decision to launch a war on Iraq and
remake the Greater Middle East In its image was misguided. The human and financial
cost of the conflict was enormous but even that was overshadowed by the loss of its
image on the global stage. Its actions represented a classic case of strategic overreach.
My Kashmir
The picturesque Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, for centuries a
model of harmony and coexistence, has been ravaged by conflict for sixty
years, caught in a tug-of-war between historical rivals India and Pakistan.
Now that both nations are nuclear powers, some see the Kashmir issue
as a flash point for what could become a nuclear war.
In My Kashmir, Wajahat Habibullah lays out the intricate web of issues at
the root of the conflict: ethnicity, religion, national identity, friction between
national and local government, and territory. In an account that is equal
parts history and memoir, he examines the complicating factors: the
Indian government's missteps, the greed of the entrenched Kashmir mid-
dle-class elites, and the religious politics and their all-too-familiar polariz-
ing consequences.
Unlike many other who have written on the subject, Habibullah gives
even-handed treatment to both Indian and Pakistani perspectives, though
he rightly keeps the Kashmiri people themselves at center stage, for their
needs and desires will be pivotal to any real solution. Now, he says,
despite the history of bloodshed and betrayals, the possibility for lasting
peace is greater than ever before.

Pakistan Under Siege
We arrived in Pakistan at the end of August 2001. By September 2001 we had just
moved into our new house. Our daughter started her new school, the British School,
Islamabad. We were busy getting used to our new life, a new country and a new con-
tinent. A few days later, the school was shut down and our daughter had to be evacu-
ated. The atmosphere of panic at the Islamabad airport was indescribable. Expatriate
families torn apart for a time yet unknown.
There we sat in our new home, without daughter, without family, no school, alone in
our new posts, taking up our respective jobs as Deputy Head of the Portuguese
Embassy and Head of the Consular/Immigration Department of the German Embassy.
In all the sadness, we wondered how we got here, and why we had applied to be
sent by our respective Foreign Offices to Pakistan.

Good Muslim, Bad Muslim
In this brilliant look at the rise of political Islam, the distinguished political scientist
and anthropologist Mahmood Mamdani brings his expertise and insight to bear on
a question many Americans have been asking since 9/11: how did this happen?
Mamdani dispels the idea of 'good' (secular, Westernized) and 'bad' (premodern,
fanatical) Muslims, pointing out that these judgments refer to political rather than
cultural or religious identities. The presumption that there are 'good' Muslims read-
ily available to be split off from 'bad' Muslims masks a failure to make a political
analysis of our times. This book argues that political Islam emerged as the result
of a modern encounter with Western power, and that the terrorist movement at the
center of Islamist politics is an even more recent phenomenon, one that followed
Americas embrace of proxy war after its defeat in Vietnam. Mamdani writes with
great insight about the Reagan years, showing Americas embrace of the highly
ideological politics of 'good' against 'evil'. Identifying militant nationalist govern-
ments as Soviet proxies in countries such as Nicaragua and Afghanistan, the
Reagan administration readily backed terrorist movements, hailing them as the
'moral equivalents' of Americas Founding Fathers. The era of proxy wars has
come to an end with the invasion of Iraq. And there, as in Vietnam, America will
need to recognize that it is not fighting terrorism but nationalism, a battle that can-
not be won by occupation.
'Good Muslim, Bad Muslim' is a provocative and important book that will profound-
ly change our understanding both of Islamist politics and the way America is per-
ceived in the world today.

Quranic And Non-Quranic Islam
This is a study of twenty Islamic themes of contemporary importance. Each theme
bears two versions: Quranic and non-Quranic. The latter is familiar because it has
dominated Islamic perceptions, thought and practices for the past thirteen hundred
years.
It draws its sanction from a variety of sources such as pre-Islamic Arab customs and
traditions, Sunnah as it is codified in books of Ahadith, called 'The Correct Six',
jurisprudence (fiqh), myth and whim. The source for the Quranic version is exclusive-
ly the Quran. In some ways, this is a unique book. Based on the Quran, its message
is interpreted entirely from the Quranic text itself. Superimposition of non-Quranic
views has been scrupulously avoided. Credentials of Sunnah as a source of Islam
have been examined in some detail.
The two versions of Islam use the same idiom but are markedly different and often
contradictory, on fundamentals, in the general thrust, in spirit and substance. Quranic
Islam seeks to establish an egalitarian, humane, just and equitable social order. It
gives the individual full responsibility and scope to express himself constructively.

Mecca Ka Muhasira
Yaroslav Trofimov's The Siege of Mecca (Doubleday, 2007), focusing on a largely for-
gotten incident in 1979, is essential reading for anyone interested in the origins of al
Qaeda and the roots of the massive Saudi investment in worldwide jihadist "education"
over the last three decades.
At best Westerners who remember the incident will know that the Grand Mosque in
Mecca, including the Kaaba, Islam's holy of holies, the ancient cube at the center of its
courtyard, was seized by a band of Islamic fanatics who held off Saudi forces for two
weeks. After hundreds of deaths, the Saudis were forced to ask for assistance from
French commandos. The chief culprits were executed, lesser ones imprisoned and the
Saudis resumed life as before. A bizarre incident, but end of story.
On the contrary, Trofimov shows that the end was actually the beginningthe beginning
of the onslaught of global jihad.
The zealots who seized the mosque were led by Juhayman al Uteybi, a Bedouin, a former
minor member of the Saudi National Guard. Juhayman obtained a small following through
his writings denouncing the "liberalization" and "modernization" of Saudi society (e.g. shop-
ping malls, soap operas, working women) and the corruption of Saudi rulers, disporting
themselves on the coast of France and Spain out of reach of Wahhabi rules. In hopes of
igniting the Moslem world, Juhayman brought in tow a 23 year old named Mohammed
Abdullah, whom he "crowned" at the kaaba as the Mahdi, the promised redeemer who will
assume command of the Moslem world and establish the ideal society after an apocalyptic
battle with the forces of evil. (Ahmadinejad is currently promoting the Mahdi's imminent
appearance in connection with his own hoped-for apocalyptic showdown with Israel.)
A Forgotten Vision
A learned and intricate study of human spirituality, this work covers a vast
panorama of human thought, aspiration and experience, and brings forth a
fresh, unorthodox, original, and unbiased view to some of the great questions
of our time.
A fascinating and thought provoking study, this is a breakthrough in the histo-
ry of religion. Each one of us is used to living in a single religious tradition.
But if anyone gets weary of this and longs to drink from all the great religious
traditions of mankind, he is told, 'No, you can study whatever tradition you
like, but you can live in only one of them.'
The author is at pains to underline the fact that the past history of spirituality
of all great religions shows that unity is not merely an intellectual endeavour.
It is, rather, the profound consequence of transcendence from the ego/self
centred, property oriented culture, in which each of us is born and which
shapes 'human nature'.
Colonialization of Islam
What is the social base of Islamization? What
norms can be derived from it? What areas are
being Islamized? What is Islamization all about?
These and similar pertinent questions are dealt
with in this book.
The theoretical framework developed and elab-
orated in the first chapter is substantiated by a
wide range of data that follow.
This pioneering study gives an insight into the
different manifestations of Islam, rural and urban
social structures, the tussle between modernity
and tradition, between colonial and indigenous
societies. In short: the struggle between mullahs
and colonializing masters.
Socio-Religious Outlook Of Abul Fazl
Abu Fazl Allami was one of the most outstanding intellectual figures of his times.
Liberal in his religio-political outlook, cosmopolitan in his dealings with the various
religious communities of India, seasoned as a diplomat and versatile as a scholar,
he occupies a prominent place in the history of medieval political thought.
In an age torn by religious conflicts and tensions, he stood for religious toleration
and peaceful co-existence of the various religious and cultural groups. As he was
closely associated with the emperor Akbar, whose social and religious outlook made
a deep impact on contemporary life and thought, Abul Fazls own religious and
social ideas deserve a careful study.
Unfortunately his ideas are difficult to separate from those of Akbar, the reason
being their identity of outlook and similarity of approach on fundamental problems of
religion and society.

Lahore Lahore Aye
A. Hameed has always had the remarkable gift of bringing the past to
life. His reminiscences of Lahore as it was in the early years of inde-
pendence and through the 1950s are to be treasured because such
evocative writing is rare in our literature. He writes about the city and he
writes about his friends and those he came across in a long career
entirely devoted to writing. His memories of old Lahore are like
periscopes through which we can relive those times and catch a glimpse
of the men who made the city what it was. That Lahore has passed on,
as have many of those in whose company the young A. Hameed walked
its streets. But in a way they are not gone, because he brings them back
to life and with it the city as it once was. The old restaurants of Lahore
are gone. So is the old Radio Pakistan, which did what it could, within its
modest means, to keep A. Hameed and his friends, in tea and ciga-
rettes, something that was enough to keep them happy. A Hameed
takes us to the Coffee House, where we see Maulana Charagh Hasan
Hasrat surrounded by friends, waiting to be served. Maulana, is that
white-bearded waiter the one who took your order? someone asks. It
was quite black when I placed the order, replies Maulana. With A.
Hameed we return to a Lahore whose roads knew no more than the
occasional car. We are back there on a dear winter day, with white
pigeons flying in droves in the blue sky, and the trees waving gently in
the breeze. This book brings together columns that A. Hameed wrote for
Daily Times, which Khalid Hasan translated into English. So welcome to
old Lahore, its history, its food, its people, its musicians, its writers, its
streets, its wrestling pits, its theatres, its most memorable characters, in
short, the entire unique culture that makes Lahore, well, Lahore.

A Journey Into The Past
This is oral history at its best. It is the chronicle of a zamindar family's
transformation under the influence and aegis of British rule in the
Punjab. It shows how sensitivity to the call of time can change a peo-
ple's fate. It throws light on the social evolution of the Punjab, a much-
neglected field in our studies. At the same time this book is the triple
biography of the author's father, grandfather and great-grandfather and
their spouses. In this grand narrative the reader will find a gripping story
of three lives spent in the service of God, man and learning, their little
but colourful thread in the warp and woof of modern history and the exit-
ing and forceful role played by the principal ladies of the family.

Building A New Afghanistan
Given resumed Taliban power and attacks, Afghanistan must tackle a host of serious problems before it can emerge as a
confident, independent nation. Security in this battered state continues to deteriorate; suicide bombings, convoy ambush-
es, and insurgent attacks are still all too common. Effective state building depends upon eliminating the national security
crisis and enhancing the rule of law. This book offers a blueprint for moving the embattled nation toward greater democra-
cy and prosperity. Robert Rotberg and his colleagues argue that the future success of state building in Afghanistan
depends on reducing its dependence on the opium trade and enhancing its economic status. Many of Afghanistan's secu-
rity problems are related to poppy growing, opium and heroin production, and drug trafficking. Building a New Afghanistan
suggests controversial new alternatives to immediate eradication, which is foolish and counter-productive. These options
include monetary incentives for growing wheat, a viable local crop. Greater wheat production would feed hungry Afghans
while reducing narco-trafficking and the terror that comes with it.
Integrating land-locked Afghanistan into the Central Asia or greater Eurasia economy would open up trading partnerships
with its northern and western neighbours as well as with Pakistan, India, and possibly China. Developing a sense of com-
mon purpose among citizens would benefit the economy and could help to unite the nation. Perhaps most important, bol-
stering better governance in Afghanistan is necessary in order to reduce chaos and corruption and enact nationwide
reforms. Fresh and insightful, Building a New Afghanistan shows what the country's leadership and the international com-
munity should do to resolve dangerous issues and bolster a still fragile state.

Flight Of The Falcon
Flight of the Falcon is about the spectacular episodes,
trials and tribulations I had to face during my 28 years in
the Pakistan Air Force. There is more in my story as it
traverses through Pakistan's misfortunes soon after the
death of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Au Jinnah. It begins
with my encounter with the father of the nation, his
unceremonious death followed by the murder of his lega-
cy of unity. Ayub Khan's mid-night coup was a violation
of the role the Quaid-e-Azam had bequeathed on the
armed forces. The domino effect of dictatorial rule by
unprofessional generals with unflattering soldiering histo-
ry and self seeking corrupt politicians has finally brought
Pakistan to its knees. No lessons were learnt and history
keeps punishing us. What a legacy for our children to
inherit, for which the nation continues to pay a price.
What will it take to change our course?
Every year the 1965 war is celebrated remorselessly to
keep under wraps the failures of our leadership at the
time. I feel cheated and enraged at the loss of the many
gallant men who were martyred believing they were fight-
ing for a sacred cause. The 1971 war was a corollary to
the 1965 war and the Kargil conflict followed in the same
vein. Shallow personal interests were projected as
national interests by dictators. All these wars and con-
flicts proved to be catastrophic for the economy and
security of Pakistan. Were these conflicts avoidable? If
not, why were they not planned and directed with profes-
sional dexterity? Why were no lessons learnt from each
disaster? Such questions have hardly been addressed
candidly from fear of retribution by the powers that be.
Unfortunately, the armed forces have become punching
bags for all the ills of the country. These are deceptive
tactics to deflect our top leadership's failures and corrup-
tion. The combat crews from the army, navy and espe-
cially the PAF have always fought with indomitable
courage and sacrificed lives to save what was and is left
of Pakistan. They continue to perform their duty to the
nation every minute of the day and night as you and go
about our daily lives.Who pushed us into the devastation
of wars and what was the outcome is a moot point and
will be the focus of my book. It is time that the history of
our wars is re-written and the truth is told. The lessons
need to be brought out for Pakistan's survival. I feel it
should be my legacy to leave behind a detailed account
of not just the battles in which I fought, but the circum-
stances which led to these senseless conflicts and the
leaders responsible for perpetrating them. In the end, the
truth shall prevail.

Nation, Nationalism and The State
Pakistan has become a key actor in the realm of international relations post 11 September 2001.
As after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, its geopolitical situation has made it the main base for
military operations and the fight against Bin Laden's jihadist network. But the strategic position,
this time round, was also due to its special links with the Taliban.
Pakistan is involved in regional tensions and is itself undermined by a great deal of ethnic ten-
sions. This book provides an up-to-date account of the country's extraordinarily complicated politi-
cal tapestry which throws up so many questions the definition of identity, the intersection of reli-
gious and ethnic factors, a deeply flawed institutionalization of democracy, control of the state,
and the potentially explosive cross impacts of regional and domestic politics.
While they built Pakistan on the basis of 'islamic ideology', the Mohajirs are now developing sepa-
ratist tendencies. The Pashtun, the Sindhi and the Baloch nationalists are not as vocal but they
still endorse centrifugal forces due to their resentment of what they call the 'Punjabi hegemony'.
Islam too has failed as a cementing force because of the increasingly violent Shia-Sunni conflict.
National integration remains a remote prospect, but Pakistani nationalism exists, largely because it
expresses itself against others - India, first of all. Kashmir has been for years the main bone of con-
tention between India and Pakistan and it has helped this country to mobilize unitedly. Pakistan's
foreign policy, be it shaped by civilians or military rulers, is largely over-determined by this strategy.

The Idea Of Pakistan
In recent years Pakistan has emerged as a strategic player on the world stage -
both as a potential rogue state armed with nuclear weapons and as an
American ally in the war against terrorism. But our understanding of this coun-
try is superficial.
To probe beyond the headlines, Stephen Cohen, author of the prize-winning
'India: Emerging Power', offers a panoramic portrait of this complex country -
from its origins as a homeland for Indian Muslims to a military dominated state
that has experienced uneven economic growth, political chaos, sectarian vio-
lence, and several nuclear crises with its much larger neighbor, India.
Pakistans future is uncertain. Can it fulfill its promise of joining the community
of nations as a moderate Islamic state, at peace with its neighbours, or could it
dissolve completely into a failed state, spewing out terrorists and nuclear
weapons in several directions? 'The Idea of Pakistan' will be an essential tool
for understanding this critically important country.

Women Writer On Partition Of Pakistan & India
Never before has a single volume featured non-fiction writing by women from Pakistan,
India and Bangladesh on the Partition of India. Here, for the first time, are Ismat
Chughtai, Sara Suleri, Anis Kidwai, Phulrenu Guha, Meghna Guhathakurta, Shehla
Shibli, Manikuntala Sen. Kamlaben Patel and many others, speaking and writing about
communalism and literature; what they learnt from refugees; what partition means to
them 50 years later; and how they define themselvesHindus? Muslims? Indians?
Pakistanis? Bengalis? All of these or none? Either or neither? Not-Indian-not-Pakistani?
Bangladeshi not Pakistani? Above all, their accounts raise that most troubling question:
do women have a country? An unusual mix of memoirs, interviews, reminiscences and
reflective essays, this anthology is the first attempt to present womens perspective on
the partition of India, based on the experience of three countries.

Pakistan Under Musharraf (1999-2002)
Economic Reform and Political Change
This is a book of essays, dedicated to Omar Asghar Khan, based on research con-
ducted between 1999-2002 while the author was at the Sustainable Development
Policy Institute.
Given that a military government had assumed power during this period, it was
inevitable that many of the public policy issues addressed are key reforms dis-
cussed and instituted by this government. The first section is about land reform that
one can refer to as the mother of all reforms in the country. This represents a
recurring and connecting theme of this book.
The second section is on devolution that was the first, most fundamental, and most
talked about reform of the military government; like land reform, but not at the
same level, devolution can interface with all other reforms, particularly the key
social sector reforms such as that pertaining to education.
The author explains how this is the case. The third section is devoted entirely to
education. One important way of making a success of rural basic education, the
most lagging building block in education improvement in Pakistan, is to involve par-
ents and communities. This participatory model has a broader application to rural
development as explained in the context of activating social capital in Section Four.
Activating and formalizing social capital is also central to the concept of sustainable
development as explained in Section Five. Sustainable development and the envi-
ronment have an interface with trade and this is addressed in Section Six. Trade
and other liberalization have been part of the structural adjustment reform policies
Pakistan has undergone, both before and during the military government tenure,
and this is the subject of Section Seven.

An Introduction To Islamic Finance
Theory and Practice
Although the principles of Shari'ah require banks and financial institutions to be
structured on an interest-free basis, this does not mean that such institutions are
charitable concerns. As long as a person advancing money expects to share in the
profits earned (or losses incurred) by the other party, a stipulated proportion of prof-
it is legitimate. The philosophy is enshrined in the traditional Islamic concepts of
musharakah and mudarabah, along with their specialized modern variants muraba-
hah, ijarah, Salam, and istisna'. This guide to Islamic finance clearly delineates the
all-important distinctions between Islamic practices and conventional procedures
based on interest. Justice Usmani of Pakistan, who chairs several Shari'ah supervi-
sory boards for Islamic banks, clearly explains the various modes of financing used
by Islamic banks and non-banking financial institutions, emphasizing the necessary
requirements for their acceptability from the Shari'ah standpoint and the correct
method for their application. He deals with practical problems as they arise in the
course of his presentation, and offers possible solutions in each instance.
Investors and others doing business (or intending to do so) in Islamic countries
have in this book a clear, well-informed, and practical guide to a crucial factor in the
success of their endeavours.
Kickstarting Pakistans Economy
The author develops a broad strategy for the development of the private
sector on the basis of an analytical review of the broad range of con-
straints and opportunities confronting the private sector in Pakistan.
The analysis is set in the context of a profile of the private sector and a
discussion of government policies during the 1990s that impacted its envi-
ronment.
The book describes private sector activities to highlight the diverse nature
and size of activities requiring a variety of different supporting policies.
To place economic performance in proper perspective, it describes the
range of reforms undertaken by the government to support the private sec-
tor in the financial sector, fiscal area, export promotion, investment, privati-
zation, and the foreign exchange regime.
The reform process carries costs in the short-term apart from those asso-
ciated with poor sequencing or deficient design. The author also analyses
the macroeconomic constraints and discusses the lack of consistency in
sectoral policies, deficiencies in incentive policies, the continuing problems
in agriculture and the remaining agenda in the financial sector.

The End Of Innocence
'Moni Mohsin's accomplished and moving
first novel deals not only with the aftermath
of a dangerous love, but with its effects on
an entire community; retribution, revenge,
and the terrible complicity of the heedless in
the destruction of innocence. Deeply sensi-
tive to nuances of class and gender, she
dissects the diseased psyche of an "honour
killer", showing with patient insight how such
crimes are often not so much the result of
premeditation as spontaneous violence, with
family and clan members conspiring to
cover up what has been done rather than
colluding with the murderer's action.
'The End of Innocence is unusual in its set-
ting: the rural farmland? West Punjab, delin-
eated in its changing colours and seasons
with the minimal brush strokes of a
Japanese artist. The simple, sensual prose
reflects the multilingual world in which Its
child protagonist lives, moving easily from
western references to translations of local
proverbs and citations of folklore.' Aamer
Hussein, The Independent, London
'Pakistan-born Londoner, Moni Mohsin's debut novel is an utterly engrossing tale of
innocence lost. Mohsin vividly recreates the atmosphere of rural Pakistan in all its
variety, from the smell of sugarcane to the cool shadows of Laila's elegant home.
The reports of political strife never intrude too far into the story of Sabzbagh's resi-
dents but the worried gossip of adults about their government's actions add a faint
air of menace and a hint of violence and sorrow to come.
'Eager, warm-hearted and bright, without being precocious, Laila is an appealing
young heroine. In fact, all the characters are convincingly drawn, even those with
the potential to descend into caricature are well-rounded and believable.
'Moving, warm and compulsively readable, The End of Innocence is a very promis-
ing debut.'Anna Carey, The Irish Examiner
'Moni Mohsin's debut is an absorbing take on The Go-Between set in rural Pakistan
in 1971. Mohsin balances an enjoyable polyphony of characters the wizened old
servant, the jolly ex-pat, the flustered nun as she depicts an idyllic milieu under
threat. This is an assured, emotionally engaging novel.' Richard Godwin, Literary
Review, London
'The End of Innocence is set in 1 970s Pakistan, a world of vibrant colour, rich
smells and savage civil wait Mohsin uses words like a palette to paint a vivid pic-
ture of the country she grew up in. Themes synonymous with another world hon-
our killings, family honour-collide with the universal consequences of exposed
secrets. This is a beautifully written work which promises to be a real success.'

Agriculture In Pakistan
Agriculture in Pakistan has come a long way since 1947. Much has changed but it
remains a dominant sector of the national economy. This book contains a critical
analysis of the transformation process that agriculture has undergone in Pakistan.
The analysis is based on a wealth of past and current data and an extensive review of
literature. The book begins with a birds eye view of the changing role of agriculture in
the national economy, its overall performance, and references to some of the underly-
ing factors. It looks at the effects of agriculture on rural income distribution and
poverty. It then focuses on the natural resource base for agricultural growth and
examines changes in the production and productivity of crops and livestock. These
changes are given an institutional context in terms of farm structures by ownership of
and tenure on land and their differences in the use of resources and farm enterprises
(crops and livestock), followed by an analysis of markets for agricultural products,
resources and inputs. This completes the production and marketing processes.
Finally, it addresses two important questions. Who are the main players in the
process of change in Pakistans agriculture? What role has public policy played in
terms of its effects on the observed changes and outcomes?

The Diary of a
Social Butterfly
Meet Butterfly, Pakistan's most lovable, silly,
socialite. An avid partygoer inspired mis-
speller, and unwittingly acute observer of
Pakistani high society. Butterfly is a woman
like no other. In her world, SMS becomes S
& M and people eat 'three tiara cakes' while
shunning 'do number ka maal'. 'What
cheeks!' as she would say. As her country
faces tribulations from 9/11 to the assassina-
tion of Benazir Bhutto Butterfly glides
through her world, unfazed, untouched, and
stopped short only by the chip in her mani-
cure. Wicked and hugely entertaining, The
Diary of a Social Butterfly gives you a deli-
cious glimpse into the parallel universe of the
have-musts.
