About the Author:

Shakil Akhtar is at Central Michigan University.


`Mr Akhtar has performed a much needed service. He has put a great deal of relevant material, neatly organized, under one cover ... He has the eye for detail and the gift of putting the nuggets he gathers in the appropriate place. The result is this well-organized research work. A text book
for those trudging along in the media wilderness, without the foggiest idea of where they are headed or why.'
A.B.S.Jafri, Books and Authors, Dawn, 20 Feb 2001

`The author has a strong grasp of his subject and graviously shares his academic insights with us.'
Jeeva Haroun, She Magazine, March 2001

`A well argued and very well articulated narration, the book will be found of much worth by anyone interested in understanding the intricacies involved in media's handling of major national events, and the many ways in which it makes an impact - positive or otherwise - on the development of
national ethos and psyche.'
Humair Ishtiaq, Star Weekend

`Having been on both sides of the fence - a journalist and an information officer, Rai Shakil has a clear understanding of the equation between the mass media and the government. It is to his credit that he has made good use of this understanding and has not minced words when dealing with the
tricky question, exposing in the process how the media is controlled by the government, both under despotic and democratic dispensations.'
Humair Ishtiaq, Star Weekend

`The book is the result of painstaking research'
Humair Ishtiaq, Star Weekend

`religion, politics and media have defined our social and cultural ethos ... Media, Religion and Politics in Pakistan takes a very scholarly look at the equation among these three segments of society, and their individual and collective impact on our national existence. The inter-disciplinary
work brings to light new dimensions of Pakistani culture and society'
Humair Ishtiaq, Star Weekend
