Pakistan a Hard country by Anatol Lieven price in Pakistan
DAILY TELEGRAPH and INDEPENDENT BOOKS OF THE YEAR LONGLISTED FOR THE ORWELL PRIZE 2012. 2011 LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK PRIZE FINALIST. Following Pakistan’s development of nuclear weapons, unpoliced border areas, shelter for the Afghan Taliban and Bin Laden, and the spread of terrorist attacks by Pakistani-based groups to London, Bombay, and New York, there is a clear need to look beyond the simplistic image of a failed state so often portrayed in the media, and instead see a country of enormous complexity and importance. Lieven’s in-depth and comprehensive research lays the way for a better understanding of this fascinating yet conflicting country.
