2014-15 AIPS Book Prize Winner

AIPS is pleased to announce the 2014-15 Book Award prize winner:
Dr. Osama Siddique, author of
Pakistan’s Experience with Formal Law: An Alien Justice.

Siddique’s book was chosen by the Committee because it focuses on an area not as much discussed as others like the military and geopolitical issues.  Law and the multiple legal systems in play in Pakistan are major issues in contemporary Pakistan.  Refreshingly, the book gives a *local* point of view, and displays the results of important bottom-up data gathering.  Because of the relative novelty of its subject matter and clear, engaging prose, it is likely to attract numerous readers and draw potential scholars into the field of Pakistan studies.

Please join us on Saturday, October 24th, 2015 at the AIPS Reception (in conjunction with the 44th Annual Conference on South Asia), Madison Concourse Hotel, Madison Wisconsin, 9-11 PM. We will announce the 2013-14 Book Award winner, Dr. Cabeiri Robinson, and the 2014-15 winner, Dr. Osama Siddique.
