'Madiha Afzal has pulled off the rare feat of writing a well-balanced and thoughtful account of extremism in Pakistan, describing its roots and also the extent of its influence, and offering some ideas about how Pakistan can move forward to a more tolerant future. â€”Peter Bergen, author of United States of Jihad: Investigating Americas Homegrown Terrorists Much of the current work on extremism in Pakistan tends to study extremist trends in the country from a detached position?a top-down security perspective, that renders a one-dimensional picture of what is at its heart a complex, richly textured country of 200 million people. In this book, using rigorous analysis of survey data, in-depth interviews in schools and universities in Pakistan, historical narrative reporting, and her own intuitive understanding of the country, Madiha Afzal gives the full picture of Pakistans relationship with extremism and suggests how this beleaguered nation?one with seemingly insurmountable problems in governance and education?can change course.
