Published by Pan Macmillan, the book says that Pakistan is almost on the brink of disaster and has put its neighboring nations at risk. The author holds that initially Pakistan appeased, sheltered and promoted Islamic radicals to advance their foreign-policy goals against neighboring countries. But radical groups patronized by Pakistani rulers turned against them after 9/11, when the rulers became a partner of US for war on terror.
The book holds out that a jihadist takeover of Pakistan with its nuclear arsenal is most likely to lead to a joint Indo-American military assault on it (Pakistan). The author argues that if the jihadist takeover of Pakistan happens, its army will disintegrate leading to nukes in the hands of radicals which India and the US would never like.
The book, in a well-argued form of political analysis hints at the possibility of dismantling of Pakistan and its re-absorption into India.
