Reading List: Pakistan, Then and Now

Reading List: Pakistan, Then and Now

C. Christine Fair will speak at the 9/11 Memorial Museum on April 18, 2018.

America has long relied on Pakistan for military and intelligence support in the War on Terror, but relations have grown increasingly frayed and may be approaching an open break. What could this mean for continuing American military operations in the region?

Wednesday night at the 9/11 Memorial Museum, C. Christine Fair of Georgetown University will discuss in a public program whether there is still a mutual basis for American–Pakistani cooperation. Because this issue has only grown in complexity, Fair compiled a reading list for those interested in learning more about Pakistan.
