A nation in Denial by means of veteran journalist B.G. Verghese explores an issue of large international significance—Pakistan, and the place it really is situated in terms of India and the world.
After a brisk review of the occasions that experience come to outline post-Independence Pakistan—the conflict for Kashmir; the mixing of Karat and Hyderabad into India; the construction of Bangladesh—Verghese, drawing from infrequent archival fabric, ways matters that experience lengthy been contentious—the Indus water treaty, Siachen and A.Q. Khan’s risky nuclear forays.
Even whereas reading Pakistan’s present-day plunge into inner dissent, self-made jihadi extremism, provincial competition and armed forces rule, Verghese bargains a steady method out of the nation’s self-made dilemmas—by encouraging Pakistan to develop into greater than the Indian ‘other’, and urging it to maneuver clear of fundamentalism and include the syncretic, Sufi-infused Islam it as soon as knew. B.G. Verghese’s final ebook is a strong reminder that the middle factor with Pakistan isn't really Kashmir—rather, it's the loss of a transparent identification, the absence of a favorable ideology, and the reluctance of the kingdom to completely settle for its historical past.
