Overview: An authoritative and revelatory account of Pakistan’s politics
Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri is one of Pakistan’s most important diplomats, and was the country’s foreign minister 2002-07. In this book, he provides the ultimate insider’s account of Pakistan’s foreign policy, especially the peace process with India including the Kashmir framework (hailed at the time the most promising-ever dialogue between Pakistan and India since Independence) and the complex Pakistan-US-Afghanistan-India quadrangular relationship. Kasuri talks frankly about his Indian interlocutors, his three counterparts Pranab Mukherjee, Natwar Singh and Yashwant Sinha and the two prime ministers he worked with-Dr Manmohan Singh and A.B. Vajpayee. He also gives us a rare insight into the minds of the Pakistan Army, the contribution of the Foreign Office and his warm but complex relationship with President Musharraf. Blending analysis with choice anecdote, Neither a Hawk nor a Dove gives us a comprehensive and revealing account of Pakistan’s politics and the political compulsions of those at the helm.
