The Penguin Economist Special reports delve into the most pressing economic issues of the day: from national and global economies, to the impact of trade, industry and jobs. Written to be read on a long commute or in your lunch hour - be better informed in under an hour.
Pakistan is in a tricky situation. It is under constant scrutiny by the world media but is more often than not described in terms of its problems.
There are indeed difficulties - bordering the unsettled nations of Afghanistan and Iran puts it in a precarious position. A poor and badly educated population for the most part is not helping the country's growth.
There is hope.
The wealth of natural resources, a growing, urban population and a more democratic government all point to a positive future.
But with the NATO withdrawal from its troubled neighbours nearing, Pakistan's survival hangs in the balance.
Simon Long's special report includes the following sections:
Too close for comfort
State of vulnerability
In the shadow of the mosque
A taste of Hunny
Always with us
Dripping with blood
Going with the flow
