The Idea of Pakistan by Stephen Philip Cohen pdf free download. It has taken me forty-four years to write this book—the length of time I have been studying Pakistan (and India). My early interests were in the role of the military, but I was unable to visit Pakistan until 1978, as an earlier application for a visa had been turned down by the government of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. When I did visit Pakistan for the first time I was surprised to discover that my personal “idea of Pakistan” was wildly inaccurate: not better, not worse, just different.

That trip led to a book, The Pakistan Army. Research for that book was made possible by General Zia ul-Haq, who promptly banned it, although he eventually told an aide to “let the professor’s book be published.” Zia’s decision was only one of the many paradoxes I encountered in studying Pakistan, and the mixture of hope and frustration reflected in The Pakistan Army is to be found here as well. This book is not quite comparable to India: Emerging Power.

It focuses primarily on internal dynamics, not strategic policy. One important difference between the two states is that Pakistan’s domestic and external policies are more entwined than those of India, partly because of Pakistan’s more perilous geostrategic position and partly because the dominant Pakistan army looks both inward and outward. Writing this book provided me with the opportunity to extend my knowledge of Pakistan beyond the army and to gain a fuller understanding of the country’s political parties, Islamists, civilian elites, and various ethnic, linguistic, and sectarian minorities. Above all, I have learned more about the contested idea of Pakistan.
