The state of Islam
culture and Cold War politics in Pakistan
Saadia Toor

Published 2011 by Pluto Press, Distributed by Palgrave Macmillan in London, New York .
Written in English.

About the Book

"The state of Islam tells the story of Pakistan through the lens of the Cold War, and more recently, the War on Terror, to shed light on the domestic and international processes behind the rise of militant Islam. Unlike existing scholarship on nationalism, Islam and the state of Pakistan, which tends to privilege events in a narrowly-defined ''political' realm, Saadia Toor highlights the significance of cultural politics in Pakistan from its origins to the contemporary period. This extra dimension allows Too to explain how the struggle between Marxists and liberal nationalists was influenced and eventually engulfed by the agenda of the religious right." -- [P] 4 of cover.
