Pakistan book

New book on Pakistan's Shi'a population:

Simon Wolfgang Fuchs, In A Pure Muslim Land: Shi'ism between Pakistan and the Middle East (UNC Press) "Fuchs shows how popular Pakistani preachers and scholars have boldly tapped into the esoteric potential of Shi'ism, occupying a creative and at times disruptive role as brokers, translators, and self-confident pioneers of contemporary Islamic thought. "

This is in the same Islamic Civilization and Muslim Networks series as Hashtag Islam.
