Summary: Pakistan has changed a lot since its establishment in August, 1947. The founding fathers envisaged Pakistan as a modern, democratic Muslim state. However, it could not sustain democracy because the bureaucratic-military elite displaced the divided political leaders and established their control over the affairs of the country. Right from the beginning, Pakistan assigned the highest priority to external security, neglecting societal development. Consequently, it could not address problems like rampant poverty, illiteracy, corruption, and poor government, which negated the essence of the establishment of Pakistan. This book addresses various aspects of Pakistan's security concerns, especially those that arise from within Pakistani society.
