 About Book  About Author 

This book is a collection of nine articles, published in various national and international journals over the years, revised and constituted into nine chapters, covering salient aspects of the Pakistan Movement, both chronologically and thematically. Apart from an introductory chapter on the Pakistan Movement as a whole, the book deals with diverse themes such as, Hindu-Muslim communalism, system of representative government, devolution of British authority in India, failure of traditional Muslim political leadership, the Lahore resolution, political mobilization of the Muslims, the Cabinet Mission Plan, and last, but not the least, the charismatic leadership of Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah and its role and relevance in the creation of Pakistan. In this sense, it is a full-fledged study of the Pakistan Movement, which teachers, researchers, and students, especially at the post-graduate level, will find useful in their pursuits. Their engagement with the discourse will hopefully stimulate further interest and insights into the study of this very important area of specialization in history and politics of India and Pakistan.
