Overview

Many dramatic developments have taken place in Pakistan since the publication of the first edition of Oxfam’s Profile (Pakistan Tradition and Change, 1996). The original text, which describes Pakistan’s history and rich cultural heritage, and self-help community schemes run by grassroots groups, is reproduced in full, with its evocative illustrations. In addition, this up-dated edition contains a supplement which summarises the internal tensions and external shocks that have created turbulence which is extreme even for a country that was born in a ferment of change: The erosion of democracy under civilian rule.
