Pakistan’s Drift Into Extremism: Allah, then Army, and America’s War Terror

Pakistan’s Drift into Extremism examines the rise of religious extremism in Pakistan and analyzes its connections to the Pakistani army’s policies and fluctuating U.S.-Pakistani relations. It includes profiles of leading Pakistani jihadi groups with details of their origins, development, and capabilities based on interviews with Pakistani intelligence officials and militant leaders. In addition to a detailed account of the political developments in Pakistan since 1947, the book also provides a detailed profile of General Pervez Musharraf, evaluates Indo-Pakistani relations, and discusses the country’s domestic and regional prospects.
