The book is about the birth of a new country whose roots go back deep in history. Pakistan is strategically important because of her location and proximity to a vast energy and resource rich region. It is also the sixth most populous nation and a nuclear power. The author has taken a holistic approach to history of the sub-continent by including different influences, belief systems and circumstances that have given shape to the evolution, ethos and attitudes of its people. It is not only politics and Islam but also different other religious and social factors that have contributed to the making of this new country. The background and circumstances that made it inevitable, including the parts played by different individuals, are covered in detail. Many of the prevalent myths and misconceptions too have been laid to rest. The consequences of the utterly mismanaged and mishandled devolution of power by the British are described forcefully, vividly and poignantly. It is history with a difference, thoroughly researched, well-documented and informative. A rich and valuable source of information for anyone interested in this strategically significant country."
