Seven years later India was partitioned - in one of the most momentous and violent series of events in recent history. in this book Dr Jalal examines what happened in those intervening years, focusing in particular on the role of Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the charismatic head of the Muslim League. Whilst throughout this period the demand for 'Pakistan' remained a vague ideal, Jinnah was nevertheless responsible for a carefully planned political strategy, intended to achieve a consolidated Muslim state. In this highly original and controversial study, Dr Jalal identifies the real political aims of Jinnah, the reasons why he was reluctant to bring them into the open, and his success or failure in achieving them.
