Summary
  • This book is not just an update to studies of Middle Eastern policy and diplomacy, but an in-depth analysis that covers the United States' foreign and strategic policy from the days of President Roosevelt to President Obama and Pakistan's security and strategic planning since its inception to 2011, under the shadow of India and Afghanistan.
  • "Despite Washington's decision to withdraw American forces from Afghanistan by 2014, South Asia will continue to dominate the US foreign policy agenda. The US may think it has left South Asia but South Asia will not leave the US alone so easily. Pakistan will remain one of the principle challenges of the US foreign policy. A nuclear armed nation which is increasingly the epicentre of Islamist extremism poses a dangerous challenge especially as the trust deficit between Islamabad and Washington is widening by the day. Nirode Mohanty captures the nuances of the US-Pakistan relationship vividly in this book and succeeds in putting it in the broader regional context where US-India ties are more robust than they have ever been in the past. A well-presented, compelling narrative!" - Harsh V. Pant, King's College London, UK "Nirode Mohanty has written a much-needed text that systematically analyzes the salient issues. Mohanty provides a succinct history and places the discussion in the context of international relationship in a way that would be understandable to readers without prior knowledge of the subcontinent. To be sure, there are a number of recent publications that shed light on various aspects of this complex interrelations among the three nations, few of these focus so squarely on the broad range of issues as does this book. The book comes out at a critical time when the US is about to conclude the longest war in its history and come out of Afghanistan. How the region adapts to the resulting changes will be critical for all of us. I am delighted that Mohanty's well-researched, lucidly written book will provide much needed insight to those who might read it as a part of a class assignment or to become informed about an important region of the world." - Dipak K. Gupta, San Diego State University, USA

Summary expansion
America's relationship with Pakistan has a profound impact on combating terrorism, nuclear security, oil, energy transportation, and strategic calculus in Asia and Europe. The relationship has been volatile: never vibrant or restive, but resilient, turbulent, and unreliable. The biggest dangers for Pakistan come from radical Islam - a threat which is spreading to Pakistan's neighbours and beyond. Pakistan has been allegedly named, even by Pakistanis, the most dangerous country in the world. Pakistan's strategic policies have been India-centric since its birth in 1947, and its relation with America is determined not by alliances with America but by America's relation with India
