Dr Ralph Braibanti of Duke University, NC wrote: The contribution made by OUP Pakistan to Pakistan Studies is remarkable. Your steady flow of first-rate scholarly studies constitute the major corpus of research on Pakistan which no scholar can ignore. You have transformed the field from one of intellectual aridity to one of verdant respectability (1997 letter to OUP Pakistan).
