"Although Pakistan achieved independence in 1947, it still has not succeeded in integrating its diverse peoples into a nation - as its short yet turbulent history vividly demonstrates. The nation's search for stability is traced in this revised and updated introduction to Pakistan's political, economic, and social development. New chapters detail political developments since 1991, including the elections of 1993 and 1996. Particular attention is paid to economic changes, including the financial crisis that led to the fall of Benazir Bhutto's government in 1996. Also included is an extensive analysis of the nuclear arms race between India and Pakistan, an issue of global concern."--Jacket

Transforming socialist economies : lessons for Cuba and beyond by Shahid Javed Burki( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Transforming Socialist Economies: Lessons for Cuba and beyond seeks to explore how diverse governments have tackled change in China, Vietnam, Eastern Europe, Russia, and Central Asia, and draw lessons for Cuba's future. The result is a provocative study that combines political and economic analysis to illustrate the detours, obstacles, and alternatives facing countries on the road from communism to capitalism." "By exploring how socialist economies have tackled change, this book proposes reforms to help Cuba recover lost ground and achieve sustained growth. But the relevance of these essays also extends far beyond Cuba to encompass important lessons for a broad spectrum of communist and post-communist countries."--Jacket

South Asia in the new world order : the role of regional cooperation by Shahid Javed Burki( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rapid changes have taken place in the structure of the global economy, and this book looks at how South Asia can take advantage of these changes. The author argues that the developing global economy will be more complex than originally thought, that instead of a bipolar model with two countries, the US and China, at the centre, it will be multipolar with eight centres of economic activity, including India. The book goes on to suggest that in the context of such a model, there should be regional cooperation between India and its immediate neighbouring countries for South Asia to advance as an economic region. It argues that South Asia will need to look at its history, and that changes in attitudes, particularly in India and Pakistan, are necessary. The possible benefits to the region, in terms of increases in the rates of economic growth if the regional approach is adopted, are discussed. The book presents a useful contribution to studies in South Asia, as well as Asian Economics. --
