Pakistan and a World in Disorder — A Grand Strategy for the Twenty-first Century by Javid Husain, Palgrave Macmillan (2016)

The book titled Pakistan and a World in Disorder — A Grand Strategy for the Twenty-First Century discusses Pakistan’s policies in the 21st century at length. Taking advantage of his vast experience, the author of the book Ambassador Javid Husain, a career diplomat who has served on important positions around the world, ponders Pakistan’s foreign policy and its achievements and shortcomings.

The author, therefore, makes a strong case for the adoption of a coherent and well thought-out grand strategy.
