Pakistan The US, Geopolitics and Grand Strategies

Synopsis

Pakistan The US, Geopolitics and Grand Strategies by Usama Butt

The killing of Osama Bin Laden highlighted the tense relationship between the US and Pakistani governments. This book considers the evolving nature of this relationship and Pakistan's place within the global order. Whereas standard accounts focus on the US-Pakistan relationship in isolation, Pakistan: The US, Geopolitics and Grand Strategies provides a broader geopolitical perspective. It analyses Pakistan's relations with the US after a decade of the war on terror as well as Pakistan's regional relations, which provides the reader with a comprehensive understanding of Pakistan's interests. Contributions from experts in both Pakistan and the West make this book vital reading for anyone seeking to understand this troubled nation.

Paul Rogers, Professor of Peace Studies, University of Bradford

'This deeply-researched, well-thought-out and comprehensive book makes an important contribution to our understanding of Pakistani policy and the vexed subject of US-Pakistani relations'
Anatol Lieven, Professor of War Studies at King

's College London and author of Pakistan: A Hard Country'
