Those wanting to understand Pakistan's role in 'War against Terrorism' must read this new book. It explains Pakistan's foriegn policy with the help of studying its Strategic Culture; the historical developmkent of its security perceptions and why it considers the policy it has been pursuing till at least 9/11, that is relying on religious extremists to achieve its foreign policy/secuiryt objectives. How much it has changed, and how much it has not. To really understand Pakistan's self view and the world view based on it, this book offers an alternative non centrist and mainly Pashtun perspective.
