This book intends, primarily, to be a source of inspiration for the general reader. It aims to re-emphasize Jinnah's vision and principals relating to democracy, justice, equality, integrity, honesty, supremacy of the rule of law and rights of women and minorities, to document the Quaid'slife, his work and achievements. The collection of previously published and new articles by well-known academics, historians and analysts along with the collection of various speeches delivered by Jinnah between 1911 and 1947 make it an invaluable source of information for academics, researchers,historians, undergraduate and graduate students alike. The book is divided into fourteen sections, including essays, excerpts from books on the freedom movement, speeches, quotes, articles, personal recollections and tributes. The speeches are unavailable in any other publications and thereforeprove to be invaluable. The book has an attractive layout, and a wide variety of photographs.
