Description

This is a collection of papers originating from a Pakistan-French Seminar organized in Paris. This volume covers a much wider spectrum than similar retrospective volumes on Pakistan and focuses on some issues not addressed before.

In the course of their close analysis, the contributors uncover new operating concepts like Socialist Feminism, give an authentic socio-economic profile of parliamentarians, and explain convincingly why linkages between economic strategies and outcome have been fortuitous.

Topics covered include the Historiography of Partition, the ongoing sectarian and ethnic strife in Pakistan, The constricted role of political parties, and Pakistan’s policies on Afghanistan which can be judged against the post-11 September scenario.

Hitherto readers have had access to British, American and even Indian studies on Pakistan. This volume makes accessible the views of notable French scholars.
