In The State of Martial Rule Ayesha Jalal analyses the dialectic between state construction and political processes in Pakistan in the first decade of the country's independence and convincingly demonstrates how the imperatives of the international system in the 'cold war' era combined with regional and domestic factors to mould the structure of the Pakistani state.
The study concludes by placing the state and political developments in Pakistan since within a conceptual framework. It will be read by historians of South Asia and by students and specialists of comparative politics and political economy. Product Details Table of Contents.

The State Of Martial Rule: The Origins Of Pakistan's Political Economy Of Defence
Amid a strong buzz that the Army is manipulating the elections, the professor of history predicts an Imran Khan-led coalition will win. The history of democracy in Pakistan raises the question: why is it vulnerable to Army rule, directly or indirectly, in sharp contrast to India?

Is this change in strategy a consequence of the amendment of the Constitution, which made abrogation, subversion or suspension of the Constitution high treason and denied the judiciary the right to decide on it? Constitutional provisions have not deterred the Pakistan Army from intervening in the past.

The void is being filled by a growing band of analysts of South Asian origin: hyphenated Americans from the subcontinent. Ayesha Jalal, assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is a familiar name from this group. That is why her book, the result of nearly a decade's research, has been awaited with some excitement among South Asian analysts and policymakers. It is difficult to fathom why Jalal chose such a complicated title. It possibly reflects the confusion that continues throughout the book.
