Book Launch: The Politics of Common Sense | Dr. Aasim Sajjad
Prof. Aasim Sajjad Akhtar teaches at Quaid-e-Azam University in Islamabad.
Prof. Akhtar has published widely on subjects as diverse as peasant movements, imperialism and state theory. He also writes a weekly column in the Dawn newspaper on current social/political issues facing Pakistan. As a prominent leader of the Awami Worker’s Party, Prof. Akhtar also bridges the theory-practice divide in academia and politics in the country.
His latest book offers a new perspective on the evolution of the structure of power and political economy in Pakistan over the past four decades. In particular, it builds upon earlier pioneering work on state theory in Pakistan, integrating more recent postcolonial and Gramscian theorisations of state and civil society.
