Pakistan has over the decades become a hotbed for the terrorist ideology often referred to as Jihadism. This book investigates the underlying principles of Pakistana€™s foreign policy from 1947 until the present day, and explains the rise of Jihadism as an offshoot of Pakistana€™s security concerns. The book goes on to discuss that from its inception as a separate state, Pakistana€™s foreign policy focused on a€˜seeking paritya€™ with India and a€˜escapinga€™ from an Indian South Asian identity. The desire to achieve parity with its much larger neighbour led Pakistan to seek the assistance and support of allies. The author analyses the relationship Pakistan has with Afghanistan, United States, China and the Muslim world, and looks at how these relationships are based on the desire that military, economic and diplomatic aid from these countries would bolster Pakistana€™s meagre resources in countering Indian economic and military strength. The book presents an interesting contribution to South Asian Studies, as well as studies on International Relations and Foreign Policy.Afzal, M.
