Название: Pakistan: Fifty Years Of Nationhood Автор: Shahid Javed Burki Издательство: Boulder, CO: Westview Press Год: 1999 Формат: pdf Страниц: 272 Размер: 25,4 mb Язык: English
Although it achieved independence in 1947, Pakistan still has not succeeded in integrating its diverse peoples into a nation—as its short yet turbulent history vividly demonstrates. New chapters detail political developments since 1991, including the elections of 1993 and 1996. Economic changes, including the financial crisis that led to the fall of Benazir Bhutto’s government in 1996, are given particular attention. Also included is an extensive analysis of the nuclear arms race between India and Pakistan, an issue of global concern.
