The Land and People of Pakistan

(Portraits of the Nations)

"A lively, informed, highly readable study of the world's tenth most populous country. Weston examines the geography, ethnicity, and history of Pakistan, then goes on to explore its political, social, economic, and cultural life." 

--School Library Journal

"This entry in a wonderfully useful series focuses on the second modern nation founded as a religious homeland, which is also the first Muslim country with an admitted nuclear capability. Neatly avoiding judgmental statements, the journalist author perceptively describes the complex political, economic, and religious tensions that coexist with a robust cultural and family life, making frequent comparisons to bring his subject home."

--Kirkus Reviews
