 ABOUT THE TITLE
Aboard the Democracy Trainí is about politics and journalism in Pakistan. It is a gripping front-line account of the countryís decade of turbulent democracy (1988-1999), as told through the eyes of the only woman reporter working during the Zia era at ĎDawní, Pakistanís leading English language newspaper. In this volume, the author reveals her unique experiences and coverage of ethnic violence, womenís rights and media freedoms. The narrative provides an insight into the politics of the Pak-Afghan region in the post 9-11 era, and exposes how the absence of rule of law claimed the life of its only woman prime minister.

Author: Nafisa Hoodbhoy was staff reporter for the English daily Dawn newspaper from 1984-2000. As the only woman reporter under Gen Zia in Karachi, Pakistan, she went on to write thousands of news reports and lead articles on the nationís transition to democracy, alternately spear-headed by civilian leaders Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif. During this period, she researched and featured in video films on women in Pakistan for the BBC, Channel 4, Lifetime Television and Journeyman Pictures. In addition, she worked for US based radio stations, including the Independent Broadcasting Associates. In 2001, she received a Ford fellowship to teach a course on Gender Politics of Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran at Amherst College, Massachusetts (US). She subsequently designed and taught a post 9/11 course on the region at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Currently working as a journalist in the US, her articles have appeared in the Washington Post, McClatchy Group of Newspapers, Toward Freedom, Paris Match, the International Council on Social Welfare and the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health.
