This is an analytical history of Pakistan that is intended to be accessible to the student and the lay reader alike. Malik (history, Bath Spa U., UK) spends the first half of the volume providing an overview of the area and discussing the pre-Pakistan history of the region, encompassing Dravidian and Aryan civilizations, the arrival of Islam in South Asia and the Indus and Delhi Sultanates, the Mughal Empire, British rule and the independence movements, and the role of religion in forming the contours of the nascent state of Pakistan. The second half of the text describes the political history of Pakistan from independence through the February, 2008 elections that were to pave the way for the departure of General Pervez Musharraf as President. Also included are a guide to acronyms, a timeline of historical events, a glossary, basic biographical information on notable people, and a bibliography.
