Description

This book seeks to explain why the military intervenes in Pakistan’s politics. It is maintained, theoretically and empirically, that the military has intervened in Pakistan’s politics for its own political interests: The military instrumentalizes its political power to maximize its economic interests as an independent actor.

Contrary to existing structuralist, legitimist, path-dependent work on Pakistan’s politics and the state, this publication posits that it is the military agency, not the societal structure/culture, which causes a coup d’etat or military intervention. These conclusions are derived from both qualitative and quantitative investigations of Pakistan.
