International experts analyze Pakistan's security and insurgency issues, looking at the threats posed to and by this nuclear-armed Islamic nation. The only country in Islamic world to be formed in the name of Islam and a nuclear power, Pakistan today is struggling for its very existence and is at war with itself. "Pakistan's Quagmire" focuses on the insurgency in Pakistan, a security problem not only for the country, but also for the region and the rest of the world. To foster a thorough understanding of the many aspects of the issue, the book looks at both theoretical and practical aspects, from international relations, conflict processes, and political Islam to the annihilation of the TTP, the presence of Al-Qaeda in tribal regions, and the role of Pakistani military and agencies. The essays are contributed by international scholars, journalists, economist, nuclear security experts, security analysts, and strategists. A unique contribution, "Pakistan's Quagmire" will be an essential resource for students in conflict processes, security studies, political Islam, and US foreign policy as well as for policymakers and professionals looking to better grasp the quagmire caused by insurgency and the ongoing war on terror in Pakistan.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Pakistan's Quagmire encapsulates Pakistan's current problems and their genesis. It offers a detailed read on issues that occupy considerable space even outside Pakistan such as the army's omni-present role, the Islamists, the existential threat at the hands of al Qaeda and Tehrike Taliban Pakistan, and also puts fears of an Islamist or military re-takeover in a realistic perspective. It is a useful guide and analysis on the present day Pakistan for those interested in this turbulent region." --Imtiaz Gul, author of The Most Dangerous Place: Pakistan's Lawless Frontier
