"No other study has so comprehensively addressed the problem of getting Pakistan to live up to its promises, let alone its obligations. This volume is based upon solid research, and its policy suggestions regarding this critically vulnerable state are well-conceived. Pakistan is at a critical point and Americans, Pakistanis, and others would be well-served by reading this study and taking its lessons to heart."Stephen Philip Cohen, Senior Fellow, The Brookings Institution, and author of The Idea of Pakistan
