    As Pakistanis went to the polls last week seeking their first democratic transition after a full-term civilian-led government, Americans heard a narrative of Pakistan as a largely violent and lawless country, steeped in corruption, and plagued by extremism.

    ArticleReflections and Memories from Pakistan
