Danny and Derek welcome to the program Arsalan Khan, assistant professor of anthropology at Union College, for a primer on Imran Khan, Pakistan’s cricket star-turned-prime minister-turned-opposition leader. They discuss his celebrity background, his early ideology, the state of Pakistan in the the 1990s, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), his relationship with the military, activity during the Musharraf government, his term as prime minister, the subsequent no confidence vote, and more.

Keep your eyes out for Dr. Khan’s book The Promise of Piety: Islam and the Politics of Moral Order in Pakistan, coming soon on Cornell University Press!
