Description

Pakistan is a complex and difficult country to describe, but in Alive and Well in Pakistan veteran reporter Ethan Casey brilliantly portrays the images and sensations of Pakistan that he gathered while living and working in Lahore. Drawing observations from the street, university classrooms and interviews with lawyers, journalists and politicians, Casey explores what life is like in a Muslim country on the frontline of the US-declared ‘war on terror’. In the process, he manages to humanise domestic politics, attitudes in Pakistan towards the West and India, and the Kashmir and Afghanistan issues.

Set within a context of recent and contemporary history, Alive and Well in Pakistan is engaging and well-informed reportage that demystifies the uneasy place that Pakistan occupies in an uncertain world.

REVIEWS

Casey plunges into Pakistan like a knife, unearthing and unravelling the often unexplainable and unpredictable contradictions of a country on the edge.
-Ahmed Rashid

Brilliant, incisive and penetrating. A travel book that travels through the mind.
-Ahmed Radhid, author of Taliban
