NEW PERSPECTIVES ON PAKISTAN'S POLITICAL ECONOMY (hb)2019
Author: MATTHEW MCCARTNEY
ISBN: 9781108486552
Year: 2019
Publisher: CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Category: POLITICS / CURRENT AFFAIR / INTERNATIONAL RELATION
Edition: 1
Format: Hard Cover
Language: English
Pages: 286
 ABOUT THE TITLE
This volume makes a major intervention in the debates around the nature of the political economy of Pakistan, focusing on its contemporary social dynamics. This is the first comprehensive academic analysis of Pakistan's political economy after thirty-five years, and addresses issues of state, class and society, examining gender, the middle classes, the media, the bazaar economy, urban spaces and the new elite. The book goes beyond the contemporary obsession with terrorism and extremism, political Islam, and simple 'civilian–military relations', and looks at modern-day Pakistan through the lens of varied academic disciplines. It not only brings together new work by some emerging scholars but also formulates a new political economy for the country, reflecting the contemporary reality and diversification in the social sciences in Pakistan. The chapters dynamically and dialectically capture emergent processes and trends in framing Pakistan's political economy and invite scholars to engage with and move beyond these concerns and issues.

Framed as a response to the long-domination of thinking about Pakistan's state
Throws light on the changing nature of the social sciences and academic work on political economy with regard to Pakistan
Explicitly inter-disciplinary in focus, looking at themes from economics, politics, sociology, media studies, economic anthropology, women's studies and political science
