The Final Punch?

The Final Punch gives a behind the scenes look at the challenges and sacrifices made by polio vaccinators in Pakistan, who are risking their lives to ensure every child receives the oral polio vaccine. In the last two years, more than 65 health workers lost their lives while immunizing children against polio in Pakistan, a country that accounts for more than 85 percent of polio cases worldwide. Although Pakistan continues to battle this crippling disease, polio is 99 percent eliminated from the planet.

"Malik Ayub Sumbal has spent considerable time in learning about Azerbaijan and its complex international relations, especially the Karabakh. He visited the frontlines, met with IDPs, and engaged with experts and the media. The book Tovuz to Karabakh reflects his incisive analysis of the 30-year conflict. As a valuable academic reference point, the book covers an entire gamut of issues, providing the reader a detailed background of the recent escalation, the role of regional and world powers, the IDP situation, the infrastructure destroyed, and the current post-resolution regional situation."

The Karabakh conflict in the Caucasus, a vital cradle of civilization, has long been a source of major shifts in the Caucasian power equations with major geopolitical,security, and economic impacts on the broader region of the Caspian nations and beyond. Hence, this book is a must-read for all those who need to grasp the meaning and aftermaths of the recent war in this highly volatile region"
