Understanding Pakistan - Pakistan was born on August 14, 1947 and when it emerged from British India, Muslims around the world rejoiced, believing they were witnessing the birth of the first democratic Muslim nation.

Pakistan: A Hard Country - Anatol Lieven's new book on Pakistan is an extensive study of the history of the country, its people, its political and military structures and threats from terrorism.

Karachi: a wounded city - Come on a tour of Pakistan's biggest city with Australian journalist Mustafa Qadri. For three decades he's been travelling between his home town of Sydney and Pakistan, seeing firsthand how the country has slowly changed. Just like the rest of Pakistan, Karachi has seen an upsurge in terrorism and gang violence over the past few years. Yet somehow, Karachiites and this complex city survive. Mustafa travels across the sprawling city, speaking to relatives, activists, rich and poor about life in Pakistan's 'city that never sleeps'.
