Pakistan - a strategic player on the world stage, devastated by current floods, in midst of a prolonged military campaign to flush "terrorists" in the North and an international crisis compounded by strained relations with neighbours and even with allies - faces an uncertain future. America's leading expert on Pakistan and India, Stephen Cohen, based at Brookings in Washington D.C. probes beyond the headlines and offers a panoramic portrait and analysis of this complex country.

Cohen is the author of several books on Pakistan and India, including the recent Arming without Aiming India's Military Modernization (2010) , The Idea of Pakistan (2004), and the prize winning India: Emerging Power (2001).
