“Beyond Crisis: Re-Evaluating Pakistan” 

 Edited by Naveeda KhanJohns Hopkins University (USA)

The volume brings together contributions from scholars who engage critically with the categories of analysis typically used for thinking about Pakistan.

The ambition of this volume is not only to complicate standing representations of Pakistan, it is to take Pakistan out of the status of exceptionalism that its multiple crises have endowed upon it.  

This book inaugurates a new moment in Pakistan studies by asking how we are to understand the lives of ordinary people as they work to make their country inhabitale, even in the midst of anxious discourses about a crisis of nationalism and a failed state that is commonly found in academic writings and media reportage.
