About the product
As a journalist and media commentator, Raza Rumi publishes with frequency, responding to continuing troubling events in South Asia. As a policy analyst, he goes beyond the immediate situation to examine the systems and history behind these conditions. And as a Pakistani Muslim, he writes with compassionate patriotism for his country, seeking avenues of reform and renewal. His 12 essays gathered in this collection display his facility in a range of writing styles ?? from academic and researched to journalistic and personal. They originally appeared in journals, newspapers, and institute publications ? in Pakistan, India, England, and the United States. The earliest dates from 2008, but the rest were published between 2012 and 2015, in the months before and after the March 2014 assault on Rumi?s life. And so they offer a glimpse of his public views expressed while in Pakistan, as well as his continued outspokenness in exile. In Islamabad that March, Taliban operatives attacked his car in an assassination attempt, which Rumi survived but which took the life of his driver. In view of the imminent danger, in April he left Pakistan and joined family in the U.S. Since September 2015, he has been hosted by Ithaca City of Asylum, teaching as an international scholar-in-residence in Ithaca College?s Honors Program and since fall 2016,at the Cornell Institute for Public Affairs. He continues to publish abroad and blog regularly about conditions in Pakistan and South Asia.
