A Hard Country, Lieven argues that while the state is weak, Pakistani society is immensely strong. A well-reasoned, welcome resource for Western "experts" and lay readers alike. Very few know what they're talking about. Anatol Lieven is that rare observer - a scholar who writes like the best kind of foreign correspondent about a country that he takes and measures on its own terms. Pakistan, a Hard Country offers an intimate and compellingly relevant portrait of an increasingly pivotal nation to the future of the world, for better or for worse.
It fills a large gap in our understanding. Based on Lieven's first-hand knowledge of the country for the past 20 years. In this quest, he ranges effortlessly from a police station in Peshawar to a politician's mansion in the Punjab to the mean streets of Karachi. He dishes up pithy observations while delving deep into the nation's history, politics, culture and institutions Mr. Lieven's eye for detail, command of subcontinental history and old-fashioned shoe-leather reporting make this in many ways an excellent primer on Pakistan.
Lieven has written a very measured book, no easy task when writing about such a hard country. Ring of Steel. Alexander Watson. Gray Tide in the East: Andrew J. James J. World Order. Henry Kissinger.
