In recent years, Pakistan has changed from being a state of regionalstrategic significance to one of major global importance. Itsgeographical position and delicate religious mix, coupled with acomplex political structure and its status as a nuclear power, haveensured that its actions—and inactions—have attracted close scrutinysince 9/11 and the declaration of the 'War on Terror.' Yet thereremains widespread dis-agreement among political and military analystsas to the real position of this enigmatic nation.In War, Coups, and Terror,Brian Cloughley explores the underbelly of Pakistan's military and itscontroversial role within the Pakistani government since Zulfiqar AliBhutto came to power in 1971. An insider with links to Pakistan's pastand present senior officers, Cloughley provides a unique insight intothe Army's influence and position as a force in the fight againstal-Qaeda and the Taliban, as well as an account of operations againstthe 2003-2004 tribal uprising. His coverage of military-politicalrelations will fascinate those who seek a closer understanding of thisenigmatic and complex country, its ambitions, affiliations, andloyalties.
