Textbooks often become a part of the political agenda of the state. In the case of Pakistani Social Studies textbooks, the result has been disastrous. Whether it is military or civilian government, the content of the textbooks have been consciously manipulated to serve the interests of the ruling power. This has come at the cost of correct information and reasoned analyses. Rosser, in this study, makes an interesting probe into the Islamic nation-building project in Pakistan through the medium of education.
