‘We are in Husain Haqqani’s debt for providing an authoritative account of the linkages between Pakistan’s powerful Islamists and its professional army. He conclusively demonstrates that these ties are long-standing, complex and very troubling. This brilliantly researched and written book should be required reading for anyone who wishes to understand this increasingly important state’. -Stephen p. Cohen, Brookings Institution, Author of The Idea of Pakistan and the Pakistan Army
Husain Haqqani’s Pakistan: Between Mosque and Military analyzes the origins of the relationships between Islamism groups and Pakistan’s military, and explores Pakistan’s quest for identity and security. Tracing how Pakistan’s military has sought U.S. support by making itself useful for concerns of the moment – while continuing to strengthen the mosque – military alliance within the country – Haqqani offers an alternative view of political developments in Pakistan since the country’s independence in 1947.
