Pakistan today represents a flash point for the most pivotal ideological, cultural, political, and religious battles of our
time. Constable takes us on a panoramic tour of contemporary Pakistan, exploring the fears and frustrations, dreams and beliefs
that animate the lives of ordinary citizens in this nuclear-armed nation, and presents both an empathic and alarming look inside
one of the world’s most violent and vexing countries.
