The articles included in this volume discuss the foreign policy of Pakistan in the context of the changed regional and global scenario and the emerging realities of the post-cold war unipolar world.
The seventies has been an epoch-making era in the history of international relations. The notable events that marked this period were the thaw in the cold war, the beginning of the Society-American détente, and normalization of Sino-American relations. These occurrences had far-reaching implications for the world in general and the third world in particular.
This book comprising twenty-eight articles written by contributors both in Pakistan and abroad highlights important aspects of Pakistan foreign policy during the cold war and post-cold war period, covering the last three decades. The papers included in the book discuss foreign policy in the context of the changed regional and global scenario and the emerging realities of the post-cold war unipolar world.
Besides an era-wise critical analysis of Pakistan's foreign policy, this collection contains geographically-relevant and region-oriented articles. Also included are articles focusing on issues such as the Kashmir dispute, the nuclear programme, security concerns vis-à-vis the Indian and Afghan crises, etc, reflecting diverse perceptions and points of view on the topic.
This work will engage foreign specialists and researchers as well as the general reader interested in policy issues.
