ANTHROPOLOGY
Wrestlers, Pigeon Fanciers, and Kite Flyers
Traditional Sports and Pastimes in Lahore
Jrgen Wasim Frembgen and Paul Rollier
Wrestling, racing pigeons, and kite flying are emblematic of the Walled City of
Lahore. They show the wealth and diversity of Pakistani folk cultures in an exemplary
way. Most importantly, they are an expression of happiness and joy. In short, they
represent a cultural system and preserve cultural values. This is the first book dealing
in detail with these traditional sports and pastimes. The authors argue that these
seemingly trivial pleasures form an integral part of social life in Pakistan and create
important bonds between various communities.
Dr Jrgen Wasim Frembgen is Professor for History of the Religion and Culture of Islam at
the Institute of Near and Middle Eastern Studies, University of Munich, Germany.
Paul Rollier is currently a post-doctoral research associate in Social Anthropology at the
University College London, UK.

Baluchistan: The Land of Architecture, Crafts and


Religious Symbolism
Mohsen Keiany
This research work explores the living tradition of Baluchistan and provides a deeper
understanding of its religo-cultural aspects. The architectural and artistic traditions
are well-documented in this book. The material presented on prayer rugs, tents,
and aspects of the nomadic and semi-nomadic architecture is wholly original. The
research first focuses on the social environment of Baluchistan, in order to understand
the input of local culture and tribo-religious influences of local architecture. The
Baluchi lifestyle is analysed on a broad plane, taking into account native architecture
including mosques and symbolic minarets as key factors, together with their design,
characteristics, social contextualisation and methods of production.
Mohsen Keiany currently works as a full-time lecturer in the University of Arts in Isfahan and
also at Azad University of Shiraz, Iran.

Lahore
Topophilia of Space and Place
Anna Suvorova
This book is a reconstruction of the historical and cultural images of Lahore. The
author has chosen an interdisciplinary approach that combines studies in cultural
anthropology, literary and historical sources, art history, and humanistic geography.
The central point of the analysis is topophilia, the term used to describe the strong
sense of place or identity among certain peoples and groups. The authors aim is to
show how the historical and cultural developments of people build up the cultural
landscape of the city and how the geographical place and space, in their turn,
influence the behaviour and identity of Lahores citizens.
Dr Anna Suvorova is currently Head of the Department of Asian Literatures at the Institute of
Oriental Studies, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia.

ANTHROPOLOGY
Remotely Colonial
History and Politics in Balochistan
Nina Swidler
This book examines tribalism and nationalism as historical processes in Kalat, a
native state under the British that is today incorporated in Balochistan Province,
Pakistan. Since the early nineteenth century, Balochistan has been both remote and
strategically important to world powers. Kalat was an atypical native state in that the
ruler was marginalized in favour of sardars (chiefs) and tribal governance through
jirga (tribal court) deliberations. Although Kalat State ceased to exist in 1955, its
colonial structures persist today, albeit in weakened form.
Nina Swidler is Associate Professor Emeritus, Department of Anthropology, Fordham
University, New York, USA.

Pashtun Migrants in the Northern Areas of Pakistan


Matthias Weinreich
Drawing primarily on oral sources from the authors own research, this book
outlines the settlement history of Pashto speakers in Pakistans Northern Areas
over the last 150 years, concentrating on the decades following the opening of the
Karakoram Highway in 1978. It also looks at how the migrants language situation
had developed by the mid 1990s. The book also aims to define how the trends
related to Pashtun migration to the Northern Areas in the mid 1990s could develop
in the near future. Interwoven with this analysis are childhood memories and life
stories recounted by the Pashto speaking migrants interviewed by the author, thus
giving the reader a fascinating insight into their lives.
Matthias Weinreich is presently working for the International Committee of the Red Cross
(ICRC) and has served in Afghanistan, Armenia, Pakistan, Sudan, Macedonia/Albania, and
Tanzania.

Artefacts of Devotion
A Sufi Repertoire of the Qalandariyya in Sehwan Sharif,
Sindh, Pakistan
Michel Boivin
This book is an introduction to the words and things which are produced by the
Sufi brotherhood known as Qalandariyya. It gives evidence that the material cultural
goods produced in the scope of such tradition express a meaningful representation
of the world in a regional context. For unveiling such a Weltanschauung, it seems
relevant, first, to constitute a repertoire that is a first classification of the items, with
their local identities and definitions, and the place they occupy inside the discourse
of the Qalandariyya. While focussing on the Qalandariyya, the book echoes main
issues regarding Islam, Sufism, and society in South Asia.
Michel Boivin is a research fellow at the Centre for Indian and South Asian Studies (CEIAS),
National Centre for Scientific Research, France.

ANTHROPOLOGY
The Unconquered People
The Liberation of an Oppressed Caste
John OBrien
This book explores the history and ethnography of the Chandala of classical
literature, now known as Punjabi Christians. Mapping their history of conquest and
religiously-endorsed degradation, it discusses their subversive counter-narrative
through genealogies, wedding songs, litanies, and epic poetry; with its defiant
proclamation of identity. Eclecticism in their religious sensibilities indicates how
superficial adherence to the externals of major religions was a survival tactic.
Their hidden religion and exclusion from Hindu dharm, shows why they never saw
themselves as Hindus.
John OBrien has lectured widely in Religious Studies and conducted workshops in many
countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America.

At the Shrine of the Red Sufi


Five Days and Nights on Pilgrimage in Pakistan
Jrgen Wasim Frembgen
Translated from German by Jane Ripken
In his vividly written narrative, the renowned anthropologist and Islamologist, Jrgen
Wasim Frembgen, takes the reader along with him to experience this unique ritual
event and spectacle with all the senses. The annual festival celebrated in honour of
Pakistans most popular Sufi saint, Lal Shahbaz Qalandar, is full of spiritual rapture,
ecstasy, trance, magic, and devotion. Stefan Weidner, a renowned writer and expert
on Islam, has judged this book (German language version) as one of the most
exciting reports we owe to German cultural anthropology in recent decades.
Dr Jrgen Wasim Frembgen is Professor for History of the Religion and Culture of Islam at
the Institute of Near and Middle Eastern Studies, University of Munich, Germany.

The Way of the Pathans


James W. Spain
Drawing on a decade of experience and scholarly research, James Spain has
produced a work on the Pathans which is entertaining, readable, and valuable for
reference. The principal tribes and their characteristics, their austere and beautiful
land, and their turbulent history and daily lives are presented concisely and
systematically; as are the fiery sweetness of Pathan poetry, the murky violence of
tribal feuds over zar, zan, and zamin (gold, women, and land), and the perennial
intrigue among tribes. James Spain writes of the century-long war between Briton
and Pathan with admiration and sympathy for both sides.
James W. Spain was in the US Foreign Service and served as ambassador in Tanzania,
Turkey, the United Nations, and Sri Lanka.

ANTHROPOLOGY
Pathans of the Latter Day
James W. Spain
Pathans of the Latter Day is a sequel to the authors The Way of the Pathans, written
more than forty years ago and frequently cited in literature on Pakistans north-west
frontier since. It is a self-contained volume based on the authors return visits to the
Frontier in the 1980s and 1990s. A combination of history, personal experience,
and interpretation, Pathans of the Latter Day details the origins and structure of
the volatile tribesmen living along Pakistans border with Afghanistan; their highly
developed code of law, Pukhtunwali; their acceptance of Pakistan; their relations
with their Chinese neighbours; and their experiences during the wars in Afghanistan.
James W. Spain was in the US Foreign Service and served as ambassador in Tanzania,
Turkey, the United Nations, and Sri Lanka.

Comparing Cities
The Middle East and South Asia
Edited by Kamran Asdar Ali and Martina Rieker
The book contains a set of essays which seeks to highlight the changing social dynamics
in Middle Eastern and South Asian cities. The papers rethink the gendered dimension of
public spaces and investigate the relationship between the popular and the political in
these regions. They also take into account how larger structural changes in South Asia
and the Middle East have impacted the practices and experiences of people.
Kamran Asdar Ali is Associate Professor of Anthropology, Middle East Studies and Asian
Studies at the University of Texas, Austin, USA.
Martina Rieker is Director of the Institute for Gender and Womens Studies at the American
University in Cairo.

Interpreting the Sindhi World


Essays on Society and History
Edited by Michel Boivin and Matthew A. Cook
This book seeks to unite the wide community of scholars who work on Sindh and
with Sindhis. It includes work on all geographic regions in which Sindhis live (i.e.,
Pakistan, India, and the diaspora) to describe the diversity of Sindhs voices. By
re-threading unheard socio-cultural and historical voices into understanding Sindh
and its people, this collection disputes the vision of Sindhis as a monolithic Muslim
population in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
Michel Boivin is a research fellow at the Centre for Indian and South Asian Studies (CEIAS),
National Centre for Scientific Research, France.

A Punjabi Village in Pakistan


Perspectives on Community, Land, and Economy
Zekiye Eglar
The two books in this volume: the award-winning A Punjabi Village in Pakistan and
The Economic Life of a Punjabi Village are based on extensive fieldwork and present
a detailed account of the social and economic patterns of a village in Pakistan
prior to the Green Revolution of 1958, which heralded the beginnings of change
in agriculture and land ownership. The author found that unwritten social contracts
and relationships known as vartan bhanji bound the community at many different
levels, socially, economically, and in dispute resolution and that, although vartan
bhanji was vital within the male sphere, it was the women who were central to the
process and thus to the economic as well as the social well-being of the community.
Zekiye Eglar taught Cultural Anthropology at Ankara University, Turkey.

Islam and Society in Pakistan


Anthropological Perspectives
Edited by Magnus Marsden
Series Editor: Ali Khan
By addressing the diversity and complexity of the Islamic tradition in contemporary
Pakistan and seeking to analyse this diversity from very different theoretical angles,
the chapters in this book emphasise the multi-dimensionality of the varying ways
in which Islam is an integral part of the everyday life of Pakistani Muslims. The
authors explore the vitality of Islam as a religious tradition in Pakistan both from the
perspective of in-depth ethnographic fieldwork and historical research.

A History of Pashtun Migration, 17752006
Robert Nichols
This inter-regional history of South Asian and Indian Ocean migration in the modern
period from 1775 to 2006 follows Pashtun individuals and communities as they
left homelands and responded to colonial and post-colonial opportunities and
challenges in eighteenth century Rohilkhand; nineteenth century northern India
and Hyderabad; Pakistan after 1947; and the modern, globalizing Gulf region.
This work illuminates the history of Pashtuns and offers an insight into how Asian
regional populations have been integrated into, and often subordinated by, the
dynamics of contemporary globalization.

The Tigers of Baluchistan


Sylvia A. Matheson
The author has travelled extensively in remote parts of Pakistans tribal territory,
sharing a tough primitive way of life, unchanged for centuries, and recording it on
tape, cine, and still films. She lived for five years among the Bugtis, traditionally
known as Tigers of Baluchistan, who are one of the most distinguished Baluch
tribes of Pakistan. The result is a fascinating and very vivid eyewitness account of
how the Bugtis are dealing with their sudden confrontation with twentieth century
industrialization, following the discovery and development of Asias largest natural
gas field inside their area.

Muslims in Indian Cities
Trajectories of Marginalisation
Edited by Laurent Gayer and Christophe Jaffrelot
With a population of more than 150 million, Muslims are the largest Indian
minority. But over the last twenty-five years, they have faced a significant decline
in both socio-economic and political termswhile afflicted by periodic waves of
communal violence. In Indias cities, these developments find contrasting forms of
expression. While Muslims lag behind, local syncretic cultures have proved to be
resilient in the South and in the East. In the Hindi belt and in the North, Muslims
have met a different fate, especially in riot-prone areas (Ahmedabad, Mumbai,
Jaipur, and Aligarh) and in the former capitals of Muslim states (Delhi, Hyderabad,
Bhopal, and Lucknow). This book supplements an ethnographic approach to
Muslims in eleven Indian cities with a quantitative methodology in order to give an
account of this untold story.

Sindh: Stories from a Lost Homeland


Saaz Aggarwal
In the weeks following the Partition of India, a majority of the Hindus left Sindh.
Many moved to Bombay, but the diaspora scattered around the world. Most never
looked back, never told their stories, determined to adapt to their new lives. Using
childhood memories, this book gives glimpses of different aspects of life in
pre-Partition Sindh. It celebrates the positive attitude of a community that focused
on getting ahead, leaving negative thoughts and feelings behind, with a spirit of
enterprise worthy of praise.
Saaz Aggarwal is a literary critic, humour columnist, and corporate biographer.

Sadequain and the Culture of Enlightenment
Akbar Naqvi
Sadequain was a great modern artist who created a new art in which he interpreted
change as the need of the times. He was an innovative calligrapher and poet, as
well as a master of drawing and mural and easel painting who combined his skill in
all of these crafts/art forms to create works which are unique in the world. His work
honours the modern viability of the culture of enlightenment that flourished from
the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries. The book looks at the great Pakistani painter
from a new angle. The author writes on his personality, calligraphy, poetry, drawing,
and painting in the context of twentieth century modernism.
Akbar Naqvi has written on art and architecture for numerous Pakistani newspapers and
magazines for over twenty years. He has also taught History of Art at the Indus Valley School
of Art and Architecture, Karachi.

Muslim Architecture in Pakistan


Aspects of Public Welfare
Khurshid Hasan Shaikh
This book highlights the significance of the public welfare aspects of the vanishing

is based on the documentation and photography of historical structures in Pakistan,
such as caravanserais, baolis (step-wells), baradaris, kos minars, bridges, hammams,
etc, which were meant for the welfare and comfort of the public. The study has
revealed that every Muslim dynasty had made endeavours to provide facilities for
the welfare of its citizens.

Scent in the Islamic Garden
A Study of Literary Sources in Persian and Urdu
Second Edition
Ali Akbar Husain
Introduction by William Dalrymple
This book is an interdisciplinary study that bridges across medicine, horticulture,
and poetry in Islamic India. It seeks to find relations between cultural values and
landscape expression. It does so through reference to the significance of fragrance
in Islam, as understood in medicinal and horticultural texts, and through essential
focus on Hyderabad, one of the last bastions of Islamic culture in the Indian
subcontinent. The nature-culture question is examined in garden poetry, a genre
associated with the Arabo-Persian and Urdu literary traditions and, at Hyderabad,
with the Deccani Urdu tradition.
Ali Akbar Husain manages the undergraduate architectural programme at the Indus Valley
School of Art and Architecture, Karachi.

Memoirs of the Badshahi Mosque


Notes on History and Architecture based on Archives, Literature,
and Archaic Images
Talha Jalal
This book is an unconventional attempt to bring together diverse aspects of the Badshahi
Mosque in a single narrativeaspects that are historical, political, and artistic at the
same time. Even though many general studies have been done over the years, few have
taken a critical approach towards the history of this monument. This was a study that
began as a humble enquiry into the nature of the interiors and embellishments of the
mosque. With time, it expanded into a much broader work which attempts to bridge the
many gaps that existed in the history of this Mughal monument.
Talha Jalal has worked as a Researcher at Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS),
and is associated with the Center for International Media Ethics in the capacity of a consultant.

The Genesis of Islamic Architecture in the Indus Valley
Holly Edwards
This book traces the genesis of commemorative architecture in the Indus Valley
from the eighth to the fourteenth centuries. Culminating in the justly famed tomb of
Rukn-al-Din Rukn-i-Alam in Multan, this distinctive and localized tradition partakes of
deeply-rooted craft traditions, even as it reflects vernacular forms of spirituality which
continue today. What distinguishes this study from others is its formathistorical
chapters are supplemented with a catalogue of individual monuments, thus providing
the reader with multiple ways to engage with an important building tradition.

Autobiography of a Sindhi Poet: A Translation of Ainay kay
Samnay
Attiya Dawood
Translated from Urdu by Amina Azfar
Attiya Dawoods autobiography is a lucid testament of her struggle to find her own
identity in a patriarchal society that has little tolerance for those who seek to escape
from male domination and meet with men on their own terms. Her experience as a
child, orphaned at a very early age and living in the close confines of village life in
the interior of Sindh, and her struggles to be independent in Hyderabad and in the
metropolis of Karachi provide her with a different worldview to those unaffected by
the claustrophobic and hide-bound atmosphere of village life.
Attiya Dawood, through her writings, has highlighted the oppression of women in the name
of tradition in Pakistani society. She is a recipient of the Sindh Adeeb Award awarded by Akhil
Bharat Sindhi Boli Ain Sahit Sabha, India.
Amina Azfar is a freelance editor, writer, and translator.

A Song of Hyderabad
Memories of a World Gone by
Bilquis Jehan Khan
This is a remarkably honest and unabashed account of a life that began during the
fading days of the wealthiest of Indias princely states. Bilquis Jehan was born into
a family with ties to the court of the Nizam of Hyderabad and enjoyed the luxury of
a way of life that no longer exists. Her tale, recounted here with insight and delight,
takes us through her childhood and her marriage to her new life in Pakistan as the
wife of an executive. Through all the changes, she preserves her heritage in her own
way. Bilquis Jehans life mirrors the monumental changes in her time.

established a vocational school for underprivileged girls in Karachi, which she continues to
supervise.

Footprints in Time
Reminiscences of a Sindhi Matriarch
Ghulam Fatima Shaikh
Translated from Sindhi by Rasheeda Husain
This memoir provides a first-hand account of what conversion from Hinduism to
Islam meant in practice; and its impact on Sindhi society from the late nineteenth
century onwards. It contains intriguing information about what it was like to be a
family that spanned the HinduMuslim divide, and how individual members coped
with the challenges and pressures generated by conversion. Sindhi Muslims were
caught up in the Khilafat agitation of the period and its immediate aftermath.
Through this memoir, we gain a clearer sense of what the Ottoman Empire meant
to Muslims of the subcontinent and how far some of them were prepared to go to
support its existence.
Ghulam Fatima Shaikh was a firm believer in the education of women. In 1947, she
founded the Fatima Girls Middle School in Hyderabad, Sindh, which she managed right until
her death in 1981.
Rasheeda Husain has had a varied career as a teacher, newsreader, music programme
conductor on radio, research librarian, and publicity manager.

A Translation of Buri Aurat ki Katha
Kishwar Naheed
Translated from Urdu by Durdana Soomro
This book by Kishwar Naheedone of Pakistans leading feminist poets, known for
her defiance and outspokennessis her response to those who are quick to label
a woman as bad. It is a searing indictment of a society that hides behind the garb
of customs and religion to keep women down, for which they even resort to brute
force. She hits out hard and fearlessly at social and political injustices and at the
materialism and sham religiosity she sees around her. Rich in literary, historical, and
cultural allusions, the book is written in a punchy, witty style that keeps the reader
engaged from the beginning to end.
Kishwar Naheed is one of the best-known feminist poets of Pakistan. Her poetry has been
translated into eleven different languages.
Durdana Soomro has translated the work of several prominent Pakistani writers from Urdu

William S. Metz

As the founder of Pakistan, Jinnah is usually revered in Pakistan and reviled in
India. This book aims at providing an impartial account of his career and, using
a wide range of sources, charts the stages of disillusionment because of which
Jinnah moved away from being a fervent Congress supporter and secular apostle
of Hindu-Muslim unity, to a triumphant leader of the movement for a separate
homeland for the subcontinents Muslims.
William Stafford Metz wrote his doctoral dissertation on The Political Career of Mohammad
Ali Jinnah at the University of Pennsylvania, USA, in 1952.

The Charismatic Leader
Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah and the Creation of Pakistan
Second Edition
Sikandar Hayat
This second, revised edition of the book is an updated version, covering the most
recent writings on the subject, especially in India, and provides a detailed and
systematic analysis of the charismatic leadership of Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali
Jinnah, the leader of Indian Muslims during the crisis-ridden decade of 193747.
Although Jinnah has been studied as a charismatic leader before, no previous study
has defined and discussed the concept of charisma so methodically or employed
it to analyze his leadership in such a systematic, organized manner. In this sense,
the book is unique and distinct and makes an original contribution to the scholarly
literature on Jinnahs political leadership.
Sikandar Hayat is currently directing staff at the National Management College, Lahore.

Water Supply in Karachi


Issues and Prospects
Noman Ahmed
Water supply services in cities in the developing world have been under pressure
due to rising demand and shrinking supply capabilities. Karachi experiences this

at least a basic type of supply, at best they are quasi-legal. This book studies how
common people acquire water and arrange for water supplies for domestic uses in
Karachi.

The Class Structure of Pakistan


Taimur Rahman
This book is an important work, since in recent times class analyses have been
largely neglected in works on South Asia, particularly on Pakistan. This study
therefore fills a gap in our knowledge. Sketching the history of the region that is now
Pakistan, it analyzes the class structure from the time of the Mughal Empire, through
the distortions of the colonial era and the transition to capitalism, to the class
structure of contemporary Pakistan. The author concludes that the class structure of
Pakistan is characterized by Asiatic capitalism, with the non-agricultural sector of the
economy dominated by petty commodity production and small-scale capitalism.

Opportunities and Constraints of Schooling for the Improvement
of Rural Households Living Conditions
Andreas Johannes Benz
This book exemplifies the links between schooling and development in Gilgit-Baltistan
in northern Pakistan, which is considered a model region for successful educational
expansion and rural development. In this cutting-edge academic study, the author
shows in detail the trajectories of educational development in Gilgit-Baltistan from the
earliest schools to the establishment of the first university and provides explanations
for educational disparities along the lines of regional and intra-denominational
variation, as well as socio-economic and gender-related inequalities.

EDUCATIONAL CRISIS AND REFORM


Perspective from South Asia
Edited by Abbas Rashid and Irfan Muzaffar
Reforming education is not just a technical issue. In order for education reforms to gain
momentum, the media, general public, and members of the policy making community need
to be more informed about the various dimensions of the educational challenge faced by
South Asian societies. The book is a modest attempt to respond to this need. The contributions
in this volume are research-based and aim at providing a deeper understanding of
both the dimensions of the crises as well as responses to them. The book will contribute
immensely to informed debate on critical issues relating to education reform in South Asia.
Abbas Rashid has taught at the Academy for Administrative Training (later the Civil Services
Academy) and served in key editorial positions in some of Pakistans major newspapers.
Irfan Muzaffars work includes teacher education, education research, and education policy
analysis, program design, and evaluation.

Curzons India
Networks of Colonial Governance, 1899-1905
Dhara Anjaria
George Curzon was arguably Indias most aspiring Viceroy. He came out with
the intention of reforming and streamlining the administration of India. The book
explores the factors that helped and hindered Curzon in his quest to integrate
the disparate elements that made up the Government of India into an efficient
administrative framework which ran along the lines he wished. It looks at Curzons
relationships with the different departments of the British Government of India and
examines two basic, intersecting themes that defined the course of his Viceroyalty of
India: executive power and the checks upon it.

Willoughbys Minute
Treaty of Nownahar, Fraud, and British Sindh
Edited by Matthew A. Cook
Willoughbys Minute, which describes events surrounding the 1842 Treaty of
Nownahar, illustrates how a fraud by a local Talpur ruler named Mir Ali Morad
informs Sindhs subsequent annexation by the British. The Minute also demonstrates
how a local treaty that did not involve the British provides an alternative genealogy
to historically contextualize British debates about the East India Companys actions
in Sindh. This genealogy focuses not on the Great Game but a debate secretly
involving the Minutes author and his beliefs about the institutional relationship
between civil and military authority within the Company.

On the Indian Frontier


Lord Curzon of Kedleston
Edited by Dhara Anjaria
In 1894, the explorer, geographer, geopolitical analyst, and future Viceroy of India,
George Nathaniel Curzon, undertook a 1200-mile trek across the Pamirs. Curzons
main objective in making this journey was to see for himself that terrain from which
the security of Britains Indian Empire it was thought could be breached, engage
with the fiercely independent little kingdoms so strategically located at the gateway
to the Indian Empire, and thus pre-empt Russian engagement with India. This work
is crucial for an understanding of one of the most well known players of the Great
Game, especially as Viceroy of India.
Dhara Anjarias research interests are nineteenth-century European imperialism in Asia and
the nature of the colonial state, in particular its administrative and political facets.

Ali Jinnah and Lokmanya Bal Gangadhar Tilak, both of whom, despite their
differences, felt passionately about the cause of Indian freedom. Jinnah defended
Tilak in his trial in 1916 on sedition charges, and ultimately secured his acquittal.
The book includes three additional essays on, respectively, why the SuhrawardyBose plan for a united Bengal failed; the failure to provide effective safeguards for
minorities in the partition scheme; and the Haroon Report of 1940, together with the
text of some key documents. The full text of the legal proceedings conducted in the
Tilak trial, including Jinnahs powerful speeches for his defence, are also included in
the book as appendix.
A. G. Noorani is an advocate of the Supreme Court of India and a leading constitutional expert.

History
Chishti Sufis in the Sultanate of Delhi 11901400
From Restrained Indifference to Calculated Defiance
Tanvir Anjum
The relationship of the Chishti Sufis with the political authorities has always been
quite controversial. In the Sultanate of Delhi, in pre-Mughal India, the Chishti Sufis
believed in keeping a distance from the rulers. The book explores their relationship
and explains how the state attempted to seek the support of the Chishtis, mostly for
political purposes, and how the Chishtis defended their stance.
Tanvir Anjum is presently Assistant Professor in the Department of History, Quaid-i-Azam

The Khyber Pass


A History of Empire and Invasion
Paddy Docherty
The Khyber Pass is the principal route through the great mountain borderlands
between India and Central Asiaand the path of invasion for generations of
conquerors. The region remains a graveyard for foreign armies. It holds a strategic
position till todayjust a few years after the Soviet Union was defeated by the
Afghan Mujahideen, thousands of soldiers from the United States, Britain, and other
nations are struggling to control Afghanistan and the gateway is the Khyber Pass.
Presently, the Khyber region is a lawless place of gunsmiths and drug markets, and
a hideout for terrorists. The authors own travels in this true frontier territory bring
this epic history into the twenty-first century.
Paddy Dochertys graduate research into British imperial history led him to Pakistan and
Afghanistan to research The Khyber Pass, his first book.

Pan-Islam in British India


The Politics of the Khilafat Movement, 19181924
M. Naeem Qureshi
The origins and development of pan-Islam in British India have eluded writers for
years. The author provides a comprehensive account that links pan-Islam and
nationalism in British India. The book primarily focuses on the Khilafat Movement
(19181924) and its religio-political dynamics. The extensive and masterful use of
primary sources aid in narrating and explaining the duality of the movement as it
struggled to reconcile pan-Islamic sentiment with national liberation for India.
M. Naeem Qureshi has recently been HEC Eminent Professor of History at Quaid-i-Azam

British Relations with Sind, 17991843


An Anatomy of Imperialism
Robert A. Huttenback
Introduction by Matthew A. Cook
Huttenbacks study of British relations with an independent Sindh from 1799 to
1843 provides valuable insight into the complexities of nineteenth-century British
imperialism. Here is a thorough investigation of British activities in Sindh after 1799,
the actual conquest, and subsequent repercussions. Huttenback presents the whole
scope of British relations with Sindh during this critical period without sacrificing the
pre-annexation issues to the circumstances surrounding Sir Charles Napier and the
conquest.
Robert A. Huttenback was the Chancellor of the University of California at Santa Barbara,
USA, and a senior professor of History.

History
McMurdos Account of Sind
James McMurdo
Introduction by Sarah Ansari
This book provides readers with a vivid picture of how South Asians were perceived
by many in Britain in the mid-nineteenth century, as well as of life in Sindh under
the Amirs, the rulers of the region at that time. McMurdos description indicates the
bias and prejudice of an imperialist viewpoint and the political ramifications of such
perceptions. At the time of Charles Napiers conquest of Sindh in 1843, the British
government launched an adverse propaganda campaign aimed at depicting the
Amirs as being incapable of looking after their own territories. This account can be
counted as part of this campaign. The book reflects the broad political canvas of
that time and prepares the backdrop for the eventual conquest of Sindh.
James McMurdo was an army officer in the 1830s. He spent time in Sindh, carrying out
scientific investigations into the Indus and the countrys irrigation system.

The British Raj in India


An Historical Review
S. M. Burke and Salim Al-Din Quraishi
This treatise on the Raj perceptively reviews the roles played by the three principle parties
in the transfer of power: the British, the Hindus, and the Muslims. The British conquered
and ruled India with the help of Indians but, when the weight of public opinion made it
impossible for them to stay any longer, they managed to extricate themselves from the
chaos with remarkable political dexterity. The Hindus, with the lead in Western education
and numerical and economic superiority, lost the bid for a united India because they
overplayed their hand. The Muslims, demoralized and discredited by the British after
1857, had a hard time convincing the world that unmodified Westminster parliamentary
institutions would install the Hindus as their masters for all time.
S. M. Burke was a Professor and Consultant in South Asian Studies at the University of
Minnesota, USA.
Salim Al-Din Quraishi is head of the modern South Asian section of the British Library,

anti-colonial movement active in the North-West Frontier Province of India in the

Fragments of the Afghan Frontier


Edited by Magnus Marsden and Benjamin D. Hopkins
This is a history and ethnography of the North-West Frontier between Afghanistan
and Pakistan, an area of increasing strategic interest to the West. Through
the construction of a collage of historical narratives and intense ethnographic
encounters, Marsden and Hopkins argue that the simplistic stereotypes and
tropes, which too often masquerade as knowledge about the Frontier, not only
conceal a more complex reality, but are also a source of the problems that local
and international actors alike face there. This study offers a corrective to simplistic
understanding both of the regions history and its current realities.

INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS
Afghanistan and Pakistan
Conflict, Extremism, and Resistance to Modernity
Riaz Mohammad Khan

The book deals with developments in Afghanistan since the withdrawal of the
Soviet troops more than two decades ago, as well as the rise of extremism and
religious militancy in Pakistan and the region, and its antecedents and linkages
with the Afghan Jihad. Afghanistan suffered international indifference and isolation
as the country experienced fragmentation and deepening ethnic divisions under
Mujahideen warlords and later witnessed the rise of the Taliban with their antiquated
outlook. The resulting environment became host to Al Qaeda and other alienated
radical militants from around the Islamic world. The book surveys these phenomena
and the post-9/11 US military intervention in Afghanistan.
Riaz Mohammad Khan is former Foreign Secretary of Pakistan as well as Pakistans
ambassador to China, the European Union, Belgium, Luxembourg, Kazakhstan, and Kyrghyztan.

The Untold Story of the People of Azad Kashmir


Christopher Snedden
This important book offers a new perspective on Pakistan-administered Kashmir,
also known as Azad Kashmir. Snedden contends that pro-Pakistan Muslims in
south-western Jammu and Kashmir, facing extermination at the hands of the Dogra
troops, instigated the Kashmir dispute; India has consistently claimed it was Pashtun
tribesmen from Pakistan, but these were tribesmen related to the Poonch Muslims.
With comprehensive new information, the author critically examines Azad Kashmir
as a political and economic entity in a subordinate relationship with Pakistan, with its
population caught up in an international dispute. This important book offers a new
perspective and provides new information and analyses about Azad Kashmir, the
least known area of the disputed Jammu and Kashmir.
Christopher Snedden is an Australian politico-strategic analyst, author, and academic

Combating Terrorism
Saudi Arabias Role in the War on Terror
Ali S. Awadh Asseri
The book describes the efforts of the government of Saudi Arabia to combat
terrorism with specific reference to the innovative three-pronged strategy that has
been successfully implemented in the Kingdom. He elaborates on the root causes of
terrorism with specific stress on the grievances of Muslims throughout the world. He
also traces the complexity of defining terrorism, highlighting the difference between a
terrorist and a freedom fighter, and moves on to provide a functional definition. He
also discusses terrorism in practice and highlights its purposes and goals; defines it in
its historical perspective; and concludes with terrorism practised in the name of religion.
Ali S. Awadh Asseri was the Saudi ambassador to Pakistan from 2001 to 2009. He is

Dennis Kux
This book provides a historical and current review of the trends of six key

Pre-independence political leadership and negotiations, that led to the partitioning

IndiaPakistan negotiations. Reviewing these critical negotiations show how both
countries must exert robust, creative, and enduring leadership to achieve concrete,
broad-based improvement in their bilateral relations, and ultimately, South Asian
regional security.

Kashmir in Comparative Perspective


Democracy and Violent Separatism in India
Sten Widmalm
Foreword by Ian Talbot
In this balanced, carefully researched, and well-designed account of the Kashmir
crisis, Sten Widmalm argues that ethnic violence is not an objective force with
self-generating political consequences but a means by which competing elites
carry on political struggle. The strength of the book is that it engages alternative
explanations of ethnic conflict even as it teaches the particularity of specific cases in
India.
Sten Widmalm is a professor at the Department of Government at Uppsala University in

ISLAMIC STUDIES
Questioning the Authority of the Past
The Ahl Al-Quran Movements in the Punjab
Ali Usman Qasmi
The present study researches the Ahl al-Quran as a disparate set of movements
originating during the late nineteenth century, mainly in Punjab. These movements
and their ideologies espoused the centrality of the Quran as the only divine text
required for the inference of religious doctrines. They questioned the relevance
and authority of such sources as hadith and classical works of exegesis and
jurisprudential compendiums. Their motive was to engender a discursive space in
which Islam could be projected as a religion compatible with modernity, tolerant of
other religions, and progressive-egalitarian in its spirit.
Ali Usman Qasmi is a Newton Fellow for postdoctoral research in the History department of
Royal Holloway College, University of London, UK.

The Origins and Early Development of Shia Islam


S. H. M. Jafri
Backed by thorough and original research, this book is a study of Shia Islam based
mainly on the oldest historical sources. In this book, the author has attempted to
reconstruct and present the development of an Islamic ideal in the form of Shiism:
that of a particular vision of religious leadership which derives its authority directly
from the person of the Prophet (pbuh) and which, therefore, enjoys divine sanction in
deciding all cases of conscience.
S. H. M. Jafri was the founding director of the Pakistan Study Centre at the University
of Karachi. Dr Jafri is Professor and Chair of Islamic/Pakistan Studies at the Aga Khan
University, Karachi.

Imam Muhammad Al-Baqir ki Taleemaat
Arzina R. Lalani
Translated from English by Amin Rehmani
Imam Muhammad al-Baqir was one of the most erudite Muslims of his age and
played a significant role in the history of early Islam. Using hitherto largely ignored
Shii sources, Arzina R. Lalani explores al-Baqirs pivotal contributions to Islamic
thought in its early formative period, which were to powerfully affect developments
in Shii law, theology, and religious practice. This study gives particular attention
to al-Baqirs vital role in the formulation of the function and nature of the Imamate
itself. Dr Lalanis work is the first systematic account of the life, career, and teachings
of this brilliant eighth-century luminary.
Arzina R. Lalani is an expert in early Shii studies and is currently Visiting Research Fellow at
The Institute of Ismaili Studies, London, UK.

Language
Language, Gender, and Power
The Politics of Representation and Hegemony in South Asia
Shahid Siddiqui
The book focuses on the role of language as a powerful tool in representing and
structuring the world. It explores how language can help construct stereotypes,
identities, and human relationships. By constructing stereotypes language also
manifests and perpetuates gender differences. The author examines how gender is
in fact made up on a continuous basis in different linguistic and artistic expressions,
e.g., sayings and proverbs, jokes, songs, films, TV plays, newspapers, theatre,
and slogans behind vehicles, and reveals how these apparently playful activities
strengthen gender stereotypes unnoticed.
Shahid Siddiqui is Professor and Head of the Department of Social Sciences at the Lahore
School of Economics (LSE).

Article 370
A Constitutional History of Jammu and Kashmir
A. G. Noorani
On 26 January 1950, the Constitution of India came into force with a unique
provisionArticle 370. The special status accorded to the state of Jammu and
Kashmir in this Article meant that its people lived under a different set of laws while
being a part of the Indian Union. Alternating deftly between history and politics,
A. G. Noorani examines a wide range of rare documents pertaining to Article
370. He incisively analyses the implications and consequences of the article for the
constitutional democracy of the state and the nation.

Muslim Family Law, Secular Courts and Muslim Women


of South Asia
A Study in Judicial Activism
Alamgir Muhammad Serajuddin

By giving a liberal and pro-active interpretation to the family law within the Islamic
framework, the South Asian judiciary has shown that it is possible to adapt it to the
needs of a forward-looking Muslim society. The book examines the extent to which
judicial interpretation has liberalized this law; enlarged the dimensions of Muslim
womens rights; and contributed to secure gender equality and social justice. The
book also argues that in the absence of legislation reflecting the ijma or consensus of
the Muslim community, judicial activism is the only alternative agent of social change.
Alamgir M. Serajuddin is a University Grants Commission Professor in Bangladesh. He has
written several books and articles on South Asian history and law.

Precedent in Pakistani Law


Muhammad Munir
In the Common Law system, it is the doctrine of precedent which courts depend
upon, more than any other legal doctrine, while arriving at their decisions. The
elements that constitute the doctrine of precedent are numerous and complex.
The operation of this doctrine has so far drawn little academic attention. This work
bridges that gap. It thoroughly examines the history, origin and context of this
doctrine, as well as the rules which guide its operation in Pakistan in the Supreme
Court, the High Courts, the Federal Shariat Court, and various tribunals.
Dr Muhammad Munir is Associate Professor at the Department of Law, International Islamic
University, Islamabad.

The Murder of Aziz Khan


Zulfikar Ghose
First published in 1967, The Murder of Aziz Khan presents a picture of Pakistani
society in its earliest years in the persons of Aziz Khan, who represents ancient and
traditional values, and the Shah brothers, who are out to exploit the resources and
the people of the new country for their personal gain. The story is built around this
central conflict. Intricately plotted, the story reveals the emotions of its characters; it
exposes the ruthless brutality of the Shah brothers and the effects of moral corruption
on them; and finally, the book describes the suffering of Aziz Khan with such
poignancy that it seems a symbolic vision of a wound in the heart of the new nation.
Zulfikar Ghose has authored ten other novels, six volumes of poetry, four books of literary
criticism, and an autobiography.

This selection of seven of Shahid Nadeems plays, published here for the first time in

is memorably distinct in both subject and treatment, but underlying the variety is a
passionate concern with major social issues, especially oppression of women and
the poor, and the distorting restrictions of corruption and hypocrisy.

original plays and adaptations and 10 TV serials and telefilms.

A History of Urdu Literature


T. Grahame Bailey
This work has successfully managed to distil a vast and amorphous body of literary
activity into one volume. Taking a historical view, the study regards the formative
Deccan period as most creditable, both for the language and the natural inclination
of the poets. The author regards the pure, indigenous Urdu as being better than
the Persianised Urdu. The literary history ends with a notice on Mohammad Iqbal.
The Progressive Writers Movement was yet to be launched and, from this vantage,
the author provides us with a useful summary of the past and gives a context to the
unfolding trends in literature.
T. Grahame Bailey was a professor at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University
of London, UK.

Jadeed Farsi Shaairi


Translated from Persian by Noon Meem Rashid
This monograph on modern Persian poetry is an acknowledged masterpiece. Urdu
lovers are familiar with classical Persian poetry, as it forms a part of their own
literary heritage. However, modern Persian poetry has hitherto been a mystery for
them. Noon Meem Rashid, a pioneer of modern Urdu poetry who gave credence to
vers libre as a form, apart from having classical Persian as a part of his traditional
education, had two extended stays in Iran. Rashid was as brilliant a literary critic as
he was dazzling as a poet, and as a result of his personal and cultural interaction
with his contemporaries in the post-Nima Yushij, Pahlavi period of Persian poetry,
Rashid produced this monograph, which sheds light not only on Persian but Urdu
poetry as well.
Noon Meem Rashid was a celebrated poet and also a renowned literary critic.

Safia Akhtar
This book contains the letters written by Safia Akhtar to her husband. As is usual with
letters forming part of a literary corpus, these letters were not written for publication.
The letters are very touching, and her feelings of being neglected come through
inadvertently, but clearly. Both her husband, Jan Nisar Akhtar, and her brother,
Asrar ul Haq Majaz, were celebrated poets. Thus, she lived in a literary milieu
and the literary idiom was not foreign to her. The personal rather than the literary
element forms the core of her appeal. These letters were published posthumously
fifty years ago and proved to be a best-seller.
Safia Akhtar was a teacher and a writer. She was married to the famous poet, Jan Nisar Akhtar.

Patras kay Mazameen


Ahmed Shah Bukhari Patras
The essays in this book constitute a landmark in the evolution of humorous prose in
Urdu. The individual essays contain various characters in comic situations, such as a
very dull student or a henpecked husband. In contrast to the riotous and ribald Urdu
prose of the 1920s, Patras developed a style that was as communicative as it was
restrained. The quality that pervades the essays is a combination of humour and
satire that keeps one enthralled. This edition contains the authentic and original text
and has, in addition, three very rare reviews in which Patras combined the functions
of literary criticism and humour.
Ahmed Shah Bukhari served as Under-Secretary General of the United Nations.

articles, there is no full-length treatment of the topic. The authors treatment of
the topic, as well as that of the colonial legacy of Urdu Literature, is of a high

The contrast between the severity of their ideology and the long-standing poetic
traditions of the cultures they are born into is nothing short of remarkable.

Iqbals Dialogue with Allah
Muhammad Iqbal
Translated from Urdu and introduced by Khushwant Singh
Though much of Iqbals best poetry is written in Persian, he is also a poet of colossal
stature in Urdu. Shikwa (1909) and Jawab-i-Shikwa (1913) extol the legacy of
Islam and its civilising role in history; bemoan the fate of Muslims everywhere; and
squarely confront the dilemmas of Islam in modern times. Shikwa is, thus, in the
form of a complaint to Allah for having let down the Muslims and Jawab-i-Shikwa is
Allahs reply to the poets complaint, thus balancing the two.

Intikhab-e-Kalam: Momin
Compiled by Muhammad Reza Kazimi
Hakim Momin Khan Momin is regarded as the quintessential poet of the classical
ghazal. In polished diction, he depicts abject adoration of the beloved, which was
almost conventional, but beyond that his lyrics are rapturous and engaging. Apart
from romantic themes, Momin took an interest in the political upheavals of his time
and made memorable comments in verse. His poetry has great variety in terms
of theme and form. In this short but representative selection, a new generation of
readers will be able to access his poetry, sometimes described as the lynchpin of the
Urdu Ghazal.

Intikhab-e-Kalam: Sahir Ludhianvi


Compiled by Muhammad Reza Kazimi
This is a representative selection of the poems of Sahir Ludhianvi, the most popular
Urdu poet of the twentieth century. Distrusted by critics because of his popular
appeal, Sahir Ludhianvi, nevertheless, had genuine literary merit. In his poems, as
well as in his film lyrics, he was a champion of human, especially womans rights.
His poetry, although on every Urdu lovers lips, did not have the typical ingredients
associated with poetry. This volume, drawn from many of his anthologies, brings out
the essence and the nature of his genius.

Intikhab-e-Kalam: Taseer
Compiled by Moinuddin Aqeel
This is a representative selection of the poetry of Dr Muhammad Deen Taseer whose
poems came as a breath of fresh air at a time when literary trends were changing.
His poems contain romantic elements, rich verse illustrations of the Arabian Nights
variety, but his most profound poems relate to the elusive nature of happiness.
Taseer was one of those poets who had undeniable merit, yet his accomplishments
in literary criticism had overshadowed his poetic output. This anthology will enable
his poetry to be judged separately from his other literary work.

Intikhab-e-Kalam: Zauq
Compiled by Muhammad Reza Kazimi
Sheikh Muhammad Ibrahim Zauq was the poet-laureate of the last Mughal Bahadur
Shah II. He composed a large number of odes which were much admired for their
conceits and ornamentation. His lyrical poetry adopted the pure local idiom which
was then the ideal of ghazal poets. In some of his verses, which have both the
universe and love as his themes, Zauq has risen to great heights and some of his
verses have become proverbial. Such a poet needs to be re-introduced to the new
generation of readers, and this is what is being tried to achieve through this volume.

Intikhab-e-Kalam: Mubarak Azeemabadi


Compiled by Muhammad Reza Kazimi
This book gives a representative selection of the poems of Mubarak Azeemabadi,
a poet of classical stature and style. Mainly known as a pupil of the renowned poet
Dagh, Mubarak had an individual style which, although lyrical, was far removed
from any hint of over-indulgence. The originality of his expression is captivating and
his lyrical abandon rarely equalled. It is because of his intrinsic moral fibre that the
verses of Mubarak, couched in the most dissolute terms, are imbued with a charm
almost without parallel in the history of Urdu poetry.

Intikhab-e-Kalam: Yaas Yagana


Compiled by Muhammad Reza Kazimi
Yaas Yagana Changezi was the founder of Anti-Poetry in Urdu. He chose the
traditional forms of ghazal and rubaiyat, yet his approach to life and literature was
markedly individual. Yagana shunned love and revolution, the dominant themes in
the poetry of his age. He was a poet who had thought and reflection as the basis for
his appeal and the poetry in this selection is reflective of this underlying appeal.

Persian-oriented to English-oriented norms. His poetical guide was Ghalib, later the
subject of a critical biography by Hali. As a socio-political reformer, he influenced
Iqbal, the first poet to have a philosophical system. Even the dialectic poems of Hali,
for example the long Musadas-e-Hali proved to be very popular.

Compiled by Moinuddin Aqeel
This book contains a representative selection from the works of Mir Ghulam Bhik
Nairang (18761952), a poet politician. During a long political career, Nairang
participated in a number of movements, all of them leaving an impression on his
poetry. While a great proportion of his poetry is lyrical, mainly in the ghazal form,
he wrote a large number of thematic poems, encompassing themes from nature to
protest. Ghulam Bhik Nairang was very popular in his lifetime, and there have been
periodic revivals of interest in his poetry.

Intikhab-e-Kalam: Jigar Muradabadi


Compiled by Muhammad Reza Kazimi
This book contains a selection of poems by Jigar Muradabadi, one of the most
celebrated ghazal poets of the Urdu language. Jigar was hailed as the greatest
exponent of this form, and dominated poetry recitals from 1940 to 1960. Jigar
combined a sonorous diction with lyrical abandon, and this proved to be a magic
formula with which he mesmerized large audiences attending poetry recitals.
While, on one level, his poems can be read as uninhibited love poetry, Jigar had a
transcendental style and a natural bent toward Sufism which caused his poems to be
read as esoteric verse.

his poetry from his political and social activities and in addition to being a journalist,
he was a trade union leader. The inherent lyricism in Faizs poetry led critics to

Intikhab-e-Kalam: Atash
Compiled by Brij Narayan Chakbast
This book contains selections from the verses of Khawaja Haider Ali Atash, the
most renowned ghazal poet of the Lucknow School. Atash lived in the surroundings
of decadent poetry, but because of his ascetic nature he wrote mainly on spiritual
themes and of the calamities befalling his age. His poetry is attractive even though
he relegated romantic themes to the margins of his poetry. The diction of Atash is
also remarkable, in that though it lacks the flow and facility of his contemporaries, it
is attuned to reflection, in which he excels.
Brij Narayan Chakbast besides being a poet and a critic was also a politiciana very
prominent member of the Home Rule League.

Shaykh Imam Baksh Nasikh was one of the founders of the Lucknow School of Urdu
poetry. He was a poet who concentrated on polishing his diction and devised rules
whereby Urdu poetry was purged of euphonically offensive sounds. Nasikhs poetry
is full of conceits, word plays, and the correct Lucknow idiom. The poetry of Nasikh

Compiled by Fateh Muhammad Malik
This is a selection of poems by Noon Meem Rashid, one of the pioneers of blank
verse and free verse in Urdu. It was he who had to bear the onslaught of
tradition-bound criticism. Noon Meem Rashids poems had the vigour and
compactness which had eluded Urdu poetry until then. From his first collection,
Mawara, Rashid comes through as a sceptic with deep metaphysical insight.
Noon Meem Rashids blank verse is full of abstract illuminations and formations,
projecting the enigmatic and bizarre aspects of life, absorbing into poetry themes
that had hitherto been the presence of prose.

sparkling, light, and full of wanton allusions. Yet, because he lived in a calamitous
age, Dagh also rendered into verse highly perceptive observations bordering on the
philosophical and reflective.

Mahasin-e-Kalam-e-Ghalib
Abdur Rehman Bijnauri
Edited by S. Nomanul Haq
This book is a landmark of Urdu literary criticism. Ghalib, whose work is surveyed
here, is hailed as the greatest of Urdu poets. The earliest study of Ghalib was by
his pupil/contemporary, Altaf Husayn Hali; Abdur Rehman Bijnauris present
monograph is only the second of such a study. Bijnauri knew European languages
besides Persian and Urdu and, for the first time, he was able to contextualize Ghalib
in a universal setting. Ghalib is the first Urdu poet who can justly be labelled as a
thinker, and although some critics have cavilled at Bijnauris comparisons, he has
nevertheless prevailed.
Abdur Rehman Bijnauri knew a number of European languages and could compare the
verses of Ghalib with Continental masters.
S. Nomanul Haq is currently a senior member of the faculty in the School of Humanities,

after him. This book is the first Urdu translation of Mirs Persian divan which has
never been published in book form before. The translation work has been done with
the help of two manuscripts held in private collections.

Sufi Music in the Indus Valley
Peter Pannke
This is a personal travelogue through the music and the culture of the Indus Valley
as presented by the German writer and musician, Peter Pannke and photographer,
Horst A. Friedrichs in 1997. When Peter Pannke first travelled to Pakistan in 1969,
what he discovered was not only the music but also the words and images, the
colours and customs which make up the extraordinarily rich cultural tapestry of the
Indus Valley. The authors second visit to the country was in 1997. Travelling up and
down the Indus, he found the music to be even richer and more varied than he had
remembered. He met the musicians himself, recorded their songs, and listened to
their stories. This book guides the reader to the heart of the Sufi traditions through a
combination of text, photographs and the music itself.
Peter Pannke is an independent writer and composer settled in Berlin.

The Lost World of Hindustani Music


Kumar Prasad Mukherji
Kumar Prasad Mukherjis elegy to a vanishing age of musical giants comprises
many shared experiences between performer and audience, and between recital
and applause. It is his salute to a world receding into the shadows of history,
peopled by ustads, pandits, the rich, the famous, the sacred, and the profane.
He traces the origins of their schools, from folk traditions to the courts of ancient
emperors. He points to the time when notation crept into classical music, resulting in
the preservation of ragas that would otherwise have been lost to time.
Kumar Prasad Mukherji teaches and writes on music.

Conflict Management and Vision for a Secular Pakistan


Moonis Ahmar
The book aims to examine the vision for Pakistan as perceived by the founders of
the country. Be it sectarian, ethnic or resource based conflicts, the lack of a secular
approach by various regimes of Pakistan since 1947 until today has augmented
the sense of insecurity and instability in the country. The book argues that religious
militancy and violence can be successfully dealt with by introducing a secular order.
This research aims to develop an understanding of a secular approach and mindset
in order to unleash the process of conflict management in Pakistan based on the
lessons which can be learned from the experiences of European, Turkish, Indian,
and Indonesian experiments with secularism.
Dr Moonis Ahmar is Professor of International Relations at the University of Karachi and the
Director of the programme on Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution.

The Integration of the Princely States of Pakistan 194755


Yaqoob Bangash
The independence of India and Pakistan in 1947 was the start of the postcolonial
era in a number of ways. The existence of the princely states, which were part of
the British Indian Empire but were completely autonomous internally and were
indirectly ruled, adds further complexity to the narrative of charting the easy
ascendancy of the military-bureaucratic nexus. The purpose of this book is to
reconstruct the process whereby the princely states acceded to Pakistan and how
their accession affected the national integration and democratic process in Pakistan.

The Genesis of the Pakistan Idea


A Study of HinduMuslim Relations
Walter Bennett Evans
The book aims to trace the course of Hindu-Muslim relations in India from the Lucknow
Pact of 1916 to the demand of Pakistan made by the All-India Muslim League in

Jinnahs Pakistan
Formation and Consolidation of a State
Farooq Ahmad Dar
This book attempts to cover, at length, the role Jinnah played as the first
Governor-General of Pakistan. Although the time span which he spent in office was
brief, the significance of the period cannot be undermined. The book is an effort
to evaluate whether Jinnah was within his constitutional limits when he exercised

Pakistan: The Garrison State


Origins, Evolution, Consequences 19472011
Ishtiaq Ahmed
In 1947, the Pakistan military was poorly trained and poorly armed. Over the
years, the Pakistan Army grew in power and influence and progressively became
the most powerful institution, with de facto veto powers at its disposal to overrule
other actors within society including elected governments. In this study, the author
examines the relationship between the internal and external factors in explaining the
rise of the military as the most powerful institution in Pakistan; the consequences of
such politics for the political and economic development in Pakistan; and the future
prospects for Pakistan.

Frontier of Faith
A History of Religious Mobilisation in the Pakhtun Tribal Areas
C. 18901950
Sana Haroon

This book examines the history of Islamespecially that of local mullasin the
North-West Frontier (now Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa). The Tribal Areas was established
as a strategic buffer zone for British India, and the resulting autonomy allowed
local mullas to assume roles of tremendous power. After Partition in 1947, the
Tribal Areas maintained its status as an autonomous region, and for the next fifty
years the mullas supported armed mobilizations in exchange for protection of their
vested interests in regional freedom. Consequently, the Frontier has become the
hinterland of successive, contradictory jihads in support of Pashtun ethnicism, anticolonial nationalism, Pakistani territorialism, religious revivalism, Afghan anti-Soviet
resistance, and anti-Americanism.

Making Lahore Modern


Constructing and Imagining a Colonial City
William J. Glover
Fifty years after the British annexed the Punjab and made Lahore its provincial
capital, the city was transformed. British and Indian officials had designed
a modern, architecturally distinct city center adjacent to the old walled city,
administered under new methods of urban governance. In this book, the author
investigates the traditions that shaped colonial Lahore. In particular, he focuses on
the conviction that both British and Indian actors who implemented urbanization
came to share: that the material fabric of the city could lead to social and moral
improvement.

Between Dreams and Realities


Some Milestones in Pakistans History
Sartaj Aziz
This book describes the various milestones and turning points in Pakistans history

reforms of the 1990s, of which Sartaj Aziz was the major architect as Finance
Minister during Nawaz Sharifs tenure. It also provides an authentic account of the
1999 Kargil crisis during which the author was the Foreign Minister.
Sartaj Aziz has served as Minister of State for Food and Agriculture, Finance, and Foreign
Affairs. He is currently the Vice Chancellor of the Beaconhouse National University.

Partition and the Making of the Mohajir Mindset


A Narrative
Brigadier A. R. Siddiqi
This is an insightful social analysis of the mohajirs, migrants from the Urdu-speaking
belt of Northern India who mostly settled in Sindh from 1947 onwards, who were
confronted by issues of identity and ethnicity as they clung to their culture, the basis
of their nationhood, in an alien environment. With the creation of Pakistan and the
mass migration of a large Muslim population from India to Pakistan, a multitude of
difficulties arose for members of the mohajir community who could neither assimilate
with the local population nor could they remain invisible.
Brigadier Abdul Rahman Siddiqi has devoted much of his life to an in-depth study of
military history and analysis of civil-military relations in Third World countries.

The fiftieth anniversary of Pakistans independence was a time for stock-taking.

Ibn Taymiyya and his Times
Edited by Yossef Rapoport and Shahab Ahmed
General Editor: S. Nomanul Haq
The writings of the medieval Islamic scholar Taqi al-Din Ibn Taymiyya (12631328)
are used today by radical groups, such as al-Qaeda, to justify acts of terrorism.
In order to explain this modern influence, this volume offers a fresh perspective
on Ibn Taymiyyas life, thoughts, and legacy. Contrary to his current image as
an anti-rationalist puritan, the book argues that Ibn Taymiyya is one of the most
intellectually complex, rigorous, and interesting figures in Islamic intellectual history.

Avicennas Deliverance: Logic


Translation and Notes by Asad Q. Ahmed
General Editor: S. Nomanul Haq
This book offers, for the first time in English, a complete scholarly translation,
commentary, and glossary of the logic section of the most renowned Muslim
philosopher and physician, Ibn Sinas very important compendium al-Najat.
Avicennas logical system took, as its starting point, the Aristotelian and the
Peripatetic traditions, but diverged from these in fascinating and original ways. The
system presented by him became the standard of reference and focus for further
elaboration, debate, and innovation in the Islamic scholarly tradition, deeply
influencing both the traditional religious sciences (such as theology and law) and
the naturalized Greek system (such as metaphysics).

PHILOSOPHY
Iqbals Concept of God
Salman Raschid
This book is an examination of Iqbals concept of God: that of a finite Godbased
on his reading of Western thought. Iqbal relates his philosophical conclusions to the
Quran and Muslim thought. Iqbals finite deity is very close to the Sufi concept of
God; both doctrines cannot be reconciled with the Quranic teaching. The underlying
conceptual issues lead to a discussion of mysticism. The concluding chapter goes
beyond Iqbal in expounding the philosophical logic of the problem of God.
Salman Raschid is an academic scholar and a Fellow of The Royal Asiatic Society.

19151955
Martin Axmann
This study investigates the genesis of Baloch nationalism during the first half of the
twentieth century; analyses the emergence of a Baloch national movement; and
sets it into relation to the rise of an Indian and Muslim Indian national movement

POLITICS
Weve Learnt Nothing from History
Pakistan: Politics and Military Power
M. Asghar Khan
This book focuses on the entry of Pakistans armed forces into the countrys politics
and the struggle for the restoration of democracy from 1968 onwards. The author
played an important role in this struggle, leading a movement against Ayub Khan
that resulted in his ouster, and later opposing Yahya Khan when he refused to
hand over power to Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and the Awami League after they won
a clear majority in the 1970 elections. In addition, the author reviews the events
that led to the re-entry, in 1999, of the armed forces into politics after a short and
turbulent period of democracy, and provides some insights into possible political
developments in Pakistan in the future.
M. Asghar Khan was the first Chief of Air Staff of the Pakistan Air Force, a politician, and the
head of the national flag carrier, PIA (Pakistan International Airlines).

Riot Politics
Hindu-Muslim Violence and the Indian State
Ward Berenschot
Based on an extensive ethnographic study of Gujarats local politics, Riot Politics
offers a novel approach to understanding the processes that foster outbursts of
communal violence in India. Berenschot argues that the difficulties that especially
poorer citizens face when dealing with state institutions, underlie the capacity and
interests of political actors to instigate and organise communal violence. The author
reveals how the capacity and willingness of various types of rioters to organise and
perpetrate violence is closely related to the different positions these actors hold in
the patronage networks that provide access to state resources.
Ward Berenschot is a political scientist and a researcher at Leiden University, the
Netherlands, specialising in identity politics and local democracy in India and Indonesia.

or forgotten issues and facts relating to the troubled history of the state. The articles,

Health and Survival
Edited by Zulfiqar A. Bhutta
Much of the global burden of undernutrition exists in relatively few countries in Asia

maternal and child undernutrition. The chapters review some of the most important
areas for intervention such as maternal undernutrition and micronutrient deficiencies,
breastfeeding and complementary feeding, as well as specific interventions related to
key nutrients such as iodine, vitamin A, zinc, and multiple micronutrients.

SOCIOLOGY
Indus Waters and Social Change
The Evolution and Transition of Agrarian Society in Pakistan
Saiyid Ali Naqvi
The author has brought a wealth of knowledge in water resources development to
this study of the impact of the harnessing of the Indus waters on the evolution and
development of the fabric of society in the region. He follows the Indus in its journey
from around 7000 BC to present times, as he develops his thesis that the processes
of social change in the region that now constitutes Pakistan are inextricably linked to
the harnessing of the Indus waters. This study provides the research, historical facts,
and insights for an informed public debate on the policy measures for overcoming
impediments and accelerating the social change process.
Saiyid Ali Naqvis lengthy career in water resources development and management covered
the large dams and irrigation projects in Pakistan and also included major international projects.

The Politics of Self-expression


The Urdu Middle-class Milieu in Mid-twentieth Century India
and Pakistan
Markus Daechsel
Middle-class political culture in interwar North India was haunted by fascistic
resonances. Activists from various political camps believed in forms of Social
Darwinism, worshipped violence and war, and focused their political action on
public spectacles and paramilitary organization. This book argues that these
features were part of a larger political culturethe politics of self-expressionthat
had lost sight of society as the space in which politics was conducted. It proposes
that this re-orientation of politics was the result of social transformations brought
about by the coming of a consumer society.
Markus Daechsel teaches the history of South Asia and the Islamic world at Royal Holloway,
University of London.

Urban Pakistan
Frames for Imagining and Reading Urbanism
Edited by Khalid W. Bajwa
Series Editor: Ali Khan

Urban Pakistan epitomizes the occasion for a baffling search for a golden position
on urbanism in what is regarded as enigmatic development in the cities, small or
big, of Pakistan. The book provides an essential resource for the fields of urban
studies, sociology, anthropology, history, analysis, design, planning, management,
and policy. It synthesizes, by drawing together, important but dispersed writings and
the associated bibliographies and identifying gaps that are patched by new works.
Khalid W. Bajwa is Professor, Department of Architecture and Design, COMSATS Institute of
Information Technology, Lahore.
Ali Khan is Assistant Professor at the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS).

SOCIOLOGY
Heroin Addiction and Crime in Pakistan
A Sociological Approach
Niaz Ahmed Siddiki
The objective of this book is to establish the interface between heroin addiction and
crime, and to determine the inter-relationship between heroin addiction and the
criminal behaviour of heroin addicts. The study will help to identify the causative
factors that lead to the commission of a crime by heroin addicts, determine the types
of crime committed by them, and establish the motives for such crimes. Once this is
done, remedial measures at policy, health care, and law enforcement levels can be
suggested for implementation.

Pakistan mein Dehi Taraqqi


Shoaib Sultan Khan
Translated from English by Aizaz Baqir
In this book, Shoaib Sultan Khan shares his experiences of working on an
experimental rural development project of NWFP, Daudzai Project, 35 years
ago. The experiments learnt during the Daudzai Project later become the basis of
Shoaib Sultan Khans work in Sri Lanka, Japan, and other South Asian countries.
The experiences, views, and ideas expressed in this book prove that a lack of
funds is not the real hurdle in the way of rural development, but the organized
participation of people is usually the missing ingredient.

STRATEGIC STUDIES
The Battle of Hussainiwala And Qaiser-i-Hind, 1971 War
Lt. Col. (Retd) Habib Ahmed

in 1971 in the then West Pakistan. The author, as Commanding Officer at the time,
led his newly created young battalion and greatly contributed to the victory of 106
Brigade under 11 Division against some heavy odds. He provides intricate details of
the battle along with its plans, and describes the unfolding chain of events that led
to the Battle in Hussainiwala Salient. The author was inspired to write this book to
reveal the correct details and actual facts to help readers understand the intricacies
of how a difficult battle was fought and won.
Lt.-Col. (Retd) Habib Ahmed was commissioned in 1954 in the 9th PMA Long Course. He
was decorated with the gallantry award of Sitara-i-Jurat in the 1971 War.

Confronting the Bomb


Pakistani and Indian Scientists Speak Out
Edited by Pervez Hoodbhoy
Authored by scientists from both sides of the Pakistan-India divide, the book
fearlessly explores tabooed, but urgent, nuclear issues that range from the political
and strategic to semi-technical ones. The book examines Pakistans changing
strategic nuclear objectives, the Kargil conflict, and the fact that ownership of the
bomb is now claimed by Islamic political parties. The issue of the safety and security
of Pakistans nuclear arsenal is considered in the background of an ideological
divide within the military.
Pervez Amirali Hoodbhoy has taught at the Department of Physics at Quaid-e-Azam
University since 1973 and now also teaches at the School of Science and Engineering, LUMS.

some key issues, such as NPT, nuclear command and control, BMD system, Pakistans
nuclear posture of credible minimum deterrence, Kashmir conflict, Pakistans
approach to biological weapons non-proliferation regime, and the role of tactical
nuclear weapons in future offensive-deterrence planningfrom a Pakistani prism.

STRATEGIC STUDIES
Indian Nuclear Deterrence
Its Evolution, Development and Implications for
South Asian Security
Zafar Iqbal Cheema
This study establishes, through unbiased documentary evidence, the fallacy of the
conventional view that Indias nuclear programme entailed exclusively peaceful
uses during the Nehru era. It suggests that the BJP governments decision to carry
out the May 1998 nuclear tests was not an original one, but a step within that
strategic continuum. The study analyses the dynamics of Indian nuclear deterrence,
Indian nuclear doctrine, and its implications for South Asian security.

Pakistans Perspective
Naeem Salik

countries respective policies towards the international non-proliferation regime. It
provides an overview of the nuclear delivery systems in India and Pakistan as well as
their efforts at stabilizing the nuclear environment by agreeing on some significant
nuclear and missiles-related Confidence Building Measures. Given the controversies

The 1971 Indo-Pak War


A Soldiers Narrative
Major General Hakeem Arshad Qureshi
While the West Pakistanis viewed the 1971 Indo-Pakistan war as a great betrayal
by East Pakistan, the Bengalis looked at it as a war of liberation from an oppressive
and brutal political system. Even the publication of the Hamood-ur-Rahman
Commission Report in 2000 has not removed all the uncertainties. While the
political aspects are given proper attention, the focus of the book is on the military
resistance of an isolated army.
Major General Hakeem Arshad Qureshi has served in the Pakistan Army and as Director
General of Pakistan Rangers.

Women, War and the Making of Bangladesh


Remembering 1971
Yasmin Saikia
Based on several oral accounts, this book traces the multiple experiences of
Bangladeshi women in the 1971 war. Survivors tell their stories, revealing the power
of speaking of what is deemed unspeakable. Women talk of rape and torture
on a mass scale, of the loss of status and citizenship, and of war babies born
after 1971. They also speak of their role as agents of change, as social workers,
caregivers, and wartime fighters. From them, we learn first-hand of the horrors
of violence, and of the unfinished business of the Partition of 1947 that surfaced
once again in 1971. This book sheds new light on the relationship between nation,
history, and gender in postcolonial South Asia.

This research brings forth a dynamic way of looking at womens rights activism in
Pakistan and how it affects the manner in which womens issues are analysed in
various state and non-state avenues both at national and international levels. Apart
from looking at the legal rights, political representation, and socio-economic status

Beyond Honour
A Historical Materialist Explanation of Honour Related Violence
Tahira S. Khan
This book is an attempt to look beyond the cultural notion of honour as the main
motive behind gender-based violence by examining related issues through historical
academic research along with the narration of present-day stories of victims around
the globe. By focusing on honour related violence in the Muslim world, especially in
Pakistan, this study aims to explain the origin and persistence of the honour/shame
code by applying Marxs Historical Materialist approach. This historical approach
identifies the materialist/economic basis of honour-related violence in some
societies, and the absence of such violence in others.

Taboo!
The Hidden Culture of a Red Light Area
With an Additional Epilogue
Fouzia Saeed
Foreword by I. A. Rehman
The Shahi Mohalla or Royal Locality is the most infamous flesh market of Pakistan
which has existed through the centuries. In the process, it has left an indelible
impression on not only the social consciousness of Pakistan, but also on many arts
like dancing and singing. This is a scholarly, yet sympathetic, analysis of an area no
one admits to have visited, and which nevertheless flourishes under the eyes of the
guardians of law and public morality. The Islamic injunction against extramarital sex
adds to the complexities that prostitution has brought to Pakistani society.
Fouzia Saeed is a social activist, gender expert, trainer/facilitator, development manager,
folk culture promoter, television commentator, and author.

Great Ancestors
Women Claiming Rights in Muslim Contexts
Farida Shaheed with Aisha Lee Shaheed
This book breaks the myth of Muslim women being passive, oppressed, and
apolitical. It looks at the mostly forgotten lives and voices of women from the eighth
to the early twentieth centuries in Muslim countries and communities who asserted
rights for themselves and for other women, promoting justice in the home and in
the public sphere. These narratives from East and South Asia to the Middle East and
West Africa bring to life the rich history of womens resistance and engagement for
rights, effectively overturning the misconception that the roots of womens activism
lie exclusively in the western countries.
Farida Shaheed is Director of Research at Shirkat Gah-Womens Resource Centre. She is
the first United Nations Independent Expert in the field of cultural rights.
Aisha Lee Shaheed is a researcher in the field of womens rights.

Heera Mandi ki Darpardah Saqafat
Revised Edition
Fouzia Saeed
Translated from English by Fahmida Riaz
This book is the Urdu translation of Taboo! The Hidden Culture of a Red Light
Area. It is a journey of discovery into the infamous red light district of Lahore,
Pakistan, known as the Shahi Mohalla (the Royal Bazaar), or Heera Mandi (the
diamond market). The phenomenon of prostitution coupled with music and dance
performances has ancient roots in South Asia. Regardless of the stigma attached to
prostitution, it has given birth for centuries to many well-known performing artists.
The book paints a more realistic picture of the phenomenon through the stories of
the people living there: the musicians, the prostitutes, and their pimps, managers,
and customers.
Fouzia Saeed is a social activist, gender expert, trainer/facilitator, development manager,
