Pakistan: History and Politics 1947-1971
This work is a comprehensive account of the history and politics of Pakistan from its inception to the breakup, which resulted in the establishment of Bangladesh. It encompasses with depth and precision all the developments in politics, economy, and foreign relations that help in understanding the historical process. It throws light on the democratic and military systems that have governed Pakistan since its commencement and analyses the reasons for their collapse. It examines many other related phenomena like attempts to frame a Constitution and the military action in East Pakistan, and thereby evolves a study which is many faceted and illuminating.
