The Islamization of Pakistan, 1979-2009
This publication offers perspectives on 1979 events in Pakistan and the influence that they continue to exert on the region. The authors emphasize that much of the turmoil in Pakistan dates from the late 1970s, when the rise to power of General Zia ul Haq and his Islamization program intersected with the momentous events of 1979, most importantly the Islamic Revolution in Iran and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.
