James Wynbrandt’s non-fiction work, “A Short History of Pakistan,” provides a thorough summary of Pakistan’s history and growth. The prehistoric and ancient history of the area is examined at the beginning of the book, and it then examines the influences of several empires and civilizations, such as the Mughals, British colonial control, and the independence movement that resulted in the founding of Pakistan in 1947. Along with military coups, regional conflicts, and sectarian tensions, the book also examines the political, social, and economic difficulties that have formed Pakistan’s history. The book is a great introduction to the complicated history of Pakistan because of its approachable writing style and thorough content.
