The most comprehensive study of the dynamics of civil-military relations in Pakistan to date, this book asks how and why the Pakistan military has acquired such a salience in the polity and how it continues to have a significant influence on decision-making on foreign and security policies and key domestic, political, social and economic issues. Starting with the British military heritage and the establishment of the Pakistan military in 1947, the book places Pakistan's experience in comparative context by using four clusters of factors. Appropriate comparisons are made with India to explain why Pakistan's civil-military relations diverge from those of India. The book also examines Pakistan's strategic doctrine and defence policy, different military regimes and the civilianization of military rule, the transition to democracy, the role of the military in the national economy, the changing social background of the officers and the role of Islam in military ideology.
