    It is an authentic account of Pakistan's foreign policy since its inception. This book thoroughly covers Pakistan's policy shifts from non-alignment to looking for alliances to cater Indian factor. Moreover, it vividly depicts Pakistan's alliances (their cost and benefits) such as 'Mutual Defence Assistance Agreement' in 1955 between Pakistan and the US, ratifying SEATO in January 1955, joining CENTO in September 1955 and 'Bilateral Defence Cooperation Agreement' in 1959 between Pakistan and the It is an authentic account of Pakistan's foreign policy since its inception.

Moreover, it talks about Pakistan's nuclear weapons and missile system and sanctions which followed after Pakistan's nuclear weapons development program. Pakistan, however, tried to neutralize these sanctions and said, it develops nuclear weapons to maintain 'Minimum Credible Deterrence'. Furthermore, there are different chapters allocated to Post 9/11 policy, Pak-Afghan relations, Pak-India Relations (Kashmir Issue, disputes and crisis, agreements etc.) and obviously Pakistan's relations with its all-weather friend-China. Overall, it is a good read for those who want to understand Pakistan's foreign policy and rationale behind its time to time shifts in its foreign policy. Since this book was published in January 2017, I guess, there was a need to include a chapter on developments of Pak-Russia relations owing to some recent developments, for example, Russia lifted Arms Embargo against Pakistan and Pak-Russia joint military exercise titled Druzhba-2016 (Friendship-2016). Nonetheless, it is an amazing read with accurate facts and figures. Peace.

    A good read in which reader can understand the compulsion of our leaders that made significant decisions in the ambit of foreign policy. Pakistan ravelled in economic and security problem at the very dawn of its birth, this situation made the rulers of the time to make very hard decisions that had consequences for the country and its people.

    A kid at high school would have done a better job than this book. Would have been much better if it was merely a 10-page pamphlet with bullet point since there are merely any justifications/reasoning in the book.

    It's a must read to get an understanding of post-partition events. The book entails all the factots that have remained the epicenter of Pakistan's vague Foreign Policy over the years.
