"[The author] has meticulously documented a twin threat to Pakistan's very existence in his excellent study on the drug trap and interrelated debt trap. His clearly stated intention and obligation as an advocate of a strong civil society is to alert his fellow countrymen against Pakistan's journey from "Kingdom of Heroin" to "Bankrupt-nuclear State." Dr. Ikramul Haq's concern, however, is not only confined to his home country Pakistan. On the one hand, he thoroughly analyses how military and civilian leaders have led their country into a crippling debt trap and which the role "narco-money" has played in this power game. On the other hand, he painstakingly reveals the external factors which have facilitated and accelerated Pakistan's fall into the debt trap. He rightly argues that Pakistan's ill-fated situation illustrates the deep problems of poor countries in general. Everyone will agree with his strong appeal that in the "global village" it is the obligation of the rich countries to support the poorest ones in getting out of their debt trap"--P. x.
