What is driving political extremism in Pakistan? How should the US and other Western nations engage with Islamist political parties in nations where they hold both political and moral authority? Haroon K. Ullah analyzes the origins, ideologies, bases of support, and electoral successes of the largest and most influential Islamic confessional parties in Pakistan. He assesses what drives them and what separates the moderates from the extremists. Pakistan's current democratic transition will hinge on how well Islamic parties contribute to civilian rule, shun violence, and mobilize support for political reform.
