On September 11th, 2001, Pakistans entire world picture changed irrevocably. Suddenly a strong ally of the United States, Pakistan quickly dismantled the Taliban position within its own borders and aided the United States in attacking the Taliban government in Afghanistan. In Pakistan on the Brink, historian Craig Baxter and a team of specialists explore this U.S.-Pakistani relationship with great dexterity. This collection of essays scrutinizes many aspects of Pakistans foreign policy, including its evolving relations with the United States, India, and Afghanistan. Essential to understanding Pakistans foreign relations is a focus on Pakistans domestic policies. The contributing scholars deftly analyze the following domestic aspects: Pakistans developing economy, controversial election process, education system, and local government. Pakistan on the Brink is an imperative source for scholars of South Asia, Pakistan, and political science.
