Pakistan in the Twentieth Century

A Political History
Lawrence Ziring
Pakistan in the Twentieth Century analyses both the vision and the reality of a South Asian polity. Beginning with an examination of the people and forces that shaped the construction of an independent and predominantly Muslim state within the subcontinent, this historical study describes the events and the work of the many personalities who influenced Pakistan’s development in the fifty years following the transfer of power. The reality of the Pakistan of today differs markedly from the vision of the founders of Pakistan.

A former president of the American Institute of Pakistan Studies, and chairman of the Pakistan Studies Development Committee of the Association for Asian Studies, he is currently Director of Development Administration Programmes and Professor of Political Science at Western Michigan University.
