 About Book  About Author 

The book is an addition to the scarce knowledge about the history and politics of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa after the creation of Pakistan. Most of the books, written on the history of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, deal with the pre-partition era. This book is focused on the administration and politics of Abdul Qaiyum Khan when he was the Chief Minister of the province from 1947 to 1953. Since he came into power immediately after the creation of Pakistan there were so many issues which were not only important but controversial as well.

The author of the book has tried his level best to be impartial about the details of events and political developments of the period although some may not agree with the findings of the author. It is possible because though Abdul Qaiyum Khan was able to nurture love and admiration for his policies from some, he also evoked extreme hatred and criticism for his administration and politics from others. The book is an effort to analyze his rule of the province without any bias or likes and dislikes.
