Pakistan’s politics, governance, institutional capacities, internal and external security and the nation-building process are at a critical juncture. The stance of the military, thus, would be a critical factor in determining the future course of Pakistan. Under the prevailing scenario in the country, any elected government would need to re-establish the viability and vitality of the state. Should it fail, the army would be compelled to re-intervene to save the country from falling apart.

For an objective ad in-depth analysis, as to how Pakistan has arrived at this critical juncture, it is important to delve into the personalities and processes that have shaped the destiny of the country. The future of Pakistan is dependent on the flux and interplay of the internal and external processes and compulsions. This book, therefore, tracks the military underpinnings in the political, geopolitical, strategic, economic, religious, sociological and sectarian Journey that Pakistan has made over the last 60 years.
