The Unraveling: Pakistan in the Age of Jihad
The Unraveling: Pakistan in the Age of Jihad
by John R. Schmidt
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant, 21 Feb. 2012
This is undoubtedly the best book on the Pakistan of today. His possible scenarios for the Pakistan of tomorrow are frightening - particularly for me ( a Pakistani who wants to live out his life in Pakistan). A book that must be read and reread.

5.0 out of 5 stars a hatrick - world cup, cancer hospital & pakistan, 4 Oct. 2011
Excellent book. essential and exciting reading for anyone interested in Pakistan.Firstly, it tells the story of Imran's life, and his personal development influenced by religion. this part of the book has a style reminiscent of Gandhi's autobiography, and is simple and straightforward. it shows Imran as honest, sincere, courageous and idealistic, compassionate about the hard life of poor Pakistanis, and determined to make a total effort to bring Pakistan back from the brink. he discards practical politics and sees things as right versus wrong.
he inspires, and wins respect. secondly the book is a good and accurate account of recent Pakistani political history, and the issues and problems that urgently need to be addressed today. thirdly the book describes Islam's role in history, and the qualities of tolerance, justice, values and education that made Islam the leading civilization for a thousand years. Forthly, it is a political manifesto which sets out Imran's objectives and struggle.
the book will certainly convince many readers that Imran is Pakistan's only hope. after reading this book, people will stop asking 'Can he win?' and instead ask, 'Can Pakistan survive if he doesn't win?'

4.0 out of 5 stars dubai city of gold, 5 April 2010
a good book, easy reading and full of facts. less controversial than christopher davidson's book on the same subject; perhaps the reason why this book is more readily available in dubai. definately worth a read for uae residents, also for others who want to know what dubai is all about

Developmental Dictatorship and the Park Chung-Hee Era: The Shaping of Modernity in the Republic of Korea
by Lee Byeong-Cheon
Edition: Paperback
Price: £25.14

3.0 out of 5 stars development dictatorship and park chung hee, 5 April 2010
a style of writing that is a little dated. at times laborious and academic. tries to combine a study of park's development economy with a theoretical explanation of abstract priciples. is better than many books on the subject, but lacks the ability to excite the reader


Globalization and Growth: Case Studies in National Economic Strategies
Globalization and Growth: Case Studies in National Economic Strategies
by Professor Richard H. K. Vietor
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.99

4.0 out of 5 stars globalization and growth, 5 April 2010
vietor is a great writer on the economies of developing countries. he is an expert who writes in a simple and clear style which is easy to read. though this is more a collection of case studies rather than a 'book' it is nevertheless an instructive read
