Synopsis

Pakistan by Samuel Willard Crompton

Pakistan, which means land of the pure in Urdu and Persian, was established in 1947, when the British Parliament created a Muslim nation from India (which was predominately Hindu). Since partition, India and Pakistan have fought for control of the disputed states of Kashmir and Jammu, and competed against each other to develop nuclear capabilities. Pakistan is the world's second-largest Muslim country and is today a military-backed constitutional regime. In 1988, Benazir Bhutto was named prime minister of Pakistan, becoming the first woman to lead a Muslim nation. Spotlighting history, people, culture, geography, economy, and government, the newly revised Pakistan: Second Edition provides a visually appealing and comprehensive overview of this diverse and strategically located country.

Reviews

New arrivals to the expanding Modern World Nations series should not be missed...assure readers plenty of material suitable for in-depth reports, yet a lively enough style to lend to browsing. All are lasting, ongoing recommendations for librarians seeking to build long-term, quality collections.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
