PAKISTAN A STUDY IN NATIONAL INTEGRATION

By (author)M. NAZRUL ISLAM

 595

The case of Pakistan provides a stiking example of a new state that appeared to have achieved a high degree of national integration especially since political awareness had been focussed on the external differences with neighbouring India and the traumatic cost of separation. Its eventual breakup therefore came as a surprise to those who mistook the illusion for the reality. This book examines the political processes in new states such as Pakistan and Malaysia and sheds light on those aspects which enhance national integration or aggravate disintegrative tendencies. The author touches upon various dimensions of the modern nation-state problematic, especially the geographic and economic background to Partition and subsequent political developments under the martial law administrations of Gen Ayub Khan and Gen Yahya Khan which culminated in the creation of Bangla Desh.
