Between Past & Future (Selected Essays on South Asia by Eqbal Ahmad)

About the Editors    Table of contents   Readers Comments

A contemporary of Edward Said and Noam Chomsky, Eqbal Ahmad was a scholar and public figure respected throughout the world for his deep insight, powerful writing, and principled and passionate commitments on the problems and prospects of the Third World, especially those of South Asia.

Selected from more than thirty years of writing, Between Past and Future brings together for the first time some of Eqbal Ahmad's most important essays, magazine articles, newspaper columns and interviews on South Asia, focusing in particular on Pakistan.

In these writings, Eqbal Ahmad illustrates how history, identity, power and privilege have made Pakistan what it is today, and points the way to understanding how the nature of Pakistan's state, its society, radical Islam and nuclear weapons are shaping a perhaps fatal path for the country's future.

  • I placed my order in the aftermath of hurricane Ike, which affected the vendor by cutting off power and communication for several days. She contacted me by telephone immediately after restoration of her power and went through my options. I was quite satisfied with the personalized quality of the service and will not hesitate to patronize them again.
