Customer Review

on 15 July 2012
'Pakistan: A Hard Country' is perhaps the ideal title for Lieven's book. It is not a short and sharp journalistic account, nor is it a testing academic volume: Lieven writes as a social scientist, historian and anthropologist, stitching together an intricate picture based as much on the author's personal interactions and experiences in Pakistan as it is on archival sources. It is a solid and eminently readable primer on Pakistan's quagmire politics, but one written with an evident personal passion for the subject - highly recommended.

(The 2012 paperback edition also includes a brief afterword covering the killing of Bin Laden and its effects on US-Pakistani relations).
