The Pakistan Army, with its deep roots in the colonial armed forces, relies heavily on certain regions where men have served for generations. These men, their wives and mothers, and the military culture surrounding them are the focus of Maria Rashid’s Dying to Serve, which sensitively examines how the military thrives when so much of its work results in injury, debility, and death. Grounding her study in the famed martial district of Chakwal, she studies a?ect deployed in recruitment and training practices, as well as management of death and compensation to families. In doing so, she compellingly sets up a?ective technologies as critical to the appeal of militarism. Maria Rashid is a feminist practitioner, trainer, and researcher in the ?eld of gender, masculinities, and violence.

About the Author

– Kamran Asdar Alia, The University of Texas at Austin “A good read for those who want to understand militarism in Pakistan as well as why the military has become the center piece of Pakistani society for decades.” – Shuja Nawaz, Atlantic Council in Washington “In a book that breaks new ground in scholarship on Pakistani militarism, Maria Rashid explores how the Pakistan Army manages emotions like grief, pride and fear among foot soldiers and their families.” – Mahvish Ahmad, London School of Economics
