Summary
Tinderbox: The Past and Future of Pakistan, acclaimed author and journalist M. J. Akbar traces the search for a “Muslim space” that began in the eighteenth century, and the events, people, circumstances, and mind-set that culminated in a fractured India in 1947. But why is Pakistan in danger of becoming a “jelly state,” a country that constantly quivers on the edge of instability? Akbar investigates contradictions in the nation<U+2019>s modern leadership, from Jinnah<U+2019>s secular ideals to the theocrats<U+2019> clear stance on creating a “sanctuary of Islam.” He also offers an intimate appraisal of the young nation<U+2019>s future<U+2014>including the global implications of nuclear armament and the harboring of terrorists like Osama bin Laden. Tinderbox, a riveting and expansive biography of a nation, fills a crucial void in our understanding<U+2014>even as the region<U+2019>s conflicts grow to affect the entire world
