Idea of Pakistan by Stephen Philip Cohen

Book Description

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 country 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 militarydominated state that has experienced uneven economic growth, political chaos, sectarian violence, and several nuclear crises with its much larger neighbor, India. Pakistan's future is uncertain. Can it fulfill its promise of joining the community of nations as a moderate Islamic state, at peace with its neighbors, 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.

Arming Without Aiming by Stephen Philip Cohen Arming Without Aiming, Paperback (December 2012)

India's approach of arming without strategic purpose remains viable, however, as it seeks great-power accommodation of its rise and does not want to appear threatening. What should we anticipate from this effort in the future, and what are the likely ramifications? This title answers those questions.

Future of Pakistan by Stephen Philip Cohen Future of Pakistan, Paperback (November 2011)

Home of the world's second-largest Muslim population, epicenter of the global jihad, location of perhaps the planet's most dangerous borderlands, and armed with nuclear weapons, Pakistan may go a long way toward determining what the world looks like. This work presents and evaluates the scenarios for how the country can develop, evolve, and act.

Four Crises and a Peace Process by Stephen Philip Cohen Four Crises and a Peace Process, Paperback (October 2007)

India and Pakistan, nuclear neighbors and rivals, fought the last of three major wars in 1971. Far from peaceful, however, the period since then has been ""one long crisis, punctuated by periods of peace.
