Pakistan: A Primary Source Cultural Guide
Primary Sources Help Illustrate the Cultures and Achievements of Twelve World Cultures Like a passport to a foreign land, the Primary Sources of World Cultures series allows students to examine all aspects of a culture and its achievements from both a historical and modern-day perspective. Vividly illustrated with an abundance of primary source official documents, newspaper articles, period photographs, artifacts, engravings, paintings, maps, and political cartoons, each culture comes alive for readers. Comprehensive text illustrates pivotal moments in history; fascinating portraits of social life and customs including festivals, ceremonies, and food, and provides an examination of the religions, arts, myths, and legends of each culture. Other chapters explain a history of languages and offer a basic geographical overview. Supplementary resources include a timeline, lists of organizations, books for further reading, a primary source list, and a glossary as well as a separate section devoted to facts, maps, and other graphic information at a glance. Once a part of the Indus Valley civilization, one of the oldest agricultural regions in the world, Pakistan's identity is deeply rooted in Indian tradition. From its most famous archeological sites such as Mohenjo-Daro, or the "Mound of the Dead, " to its struggle with independence from British India, students gain a broad-based view of Pakistan and its importance as a South Asian country. With religious views that span the millennia, Pakistan hosts a cache of diverse opinions, art, and architecture surrounding Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism. Students also gain an understanding of contemporary conflicts in Pakistan such as those surrounding thedisputed areas of Jammu and Kashmir and the continued rivalry between the Sunni and Shi'a Muslims.
