Social Science in Pakistan in the 1990s
S. Akbar Zaidi (ed.), Council of Social Sciences Pakistan, 2003
Book Introduction
Social Science in Pakistan in the 1990s is the second collection of articles on the state of the social sciences published by the Council of Social Sciences (COSS), Pakistan. It follows the earlier collection published in 2001, which was a reprint of a book first published in 1989 by the Quaid-e-Azam University in Islamabad, entitled, The State of Social Sciences in Pakistan, edited by S H Hashmi, based on a conference which took place in May 1988. The current collection is based on articles which examine the state of the social sciences in Pakistan, and have all been written or published since the Islamabad conference, up to around the middle of 2002. The purpose of bringing out this volume was to bring together collectively, under one cover, many of the papers that had been published on the social sciences since the end of the 1980s. This collection of nine chapters includes three on the state of economics, one each on history, mass communications, sociology, and social studies/civics and two on a broad overview of the predicament of social studies in the country, more generally. There is also an Introduction, which highlights and summarises the features of all the nine articles. The contributors to this volume are all well known and respected Pakistani academics and researchers and include: Abdus Sattar Abbasi, K K Aziz, Hassan N Gardezi, Nadeem UI Haque, Inayatullah, Fazal Rahim Khan, Mahmood Hasan Khan, S M Naseem, S K Qureshi, Rubina Saigol, Rehana Siddiqui, Hashmat Ali Zafar and S Akbar Zaidi.
