Oxford University Press, NY. Fewer still modify the map of the world. Hardly anyone can be credited with creating a nation-state. Mohammad Ali Jinnah did all three. His publisher at Oxford politely and firmly told the representative that money is certainly not an aim for a world-class scholar like Wolpert.
I just finished reading your book — Jinnah of Pakistan. This book has been on my to-read list for a long time. I finally got hold of it a week ago, and finished reading it within two days.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this excellent scholarly work by you. Your work has helped me know more about the father of my nation. As a Pakistani, I wanted to thank you for giving us this wonderful gift that will help keep the memories of Quaid-e-Azam alive for generations to come. This is why I wanted to read it. However, what most pleasantly surprised me about your work was the beautifully told story. I teach organizational psychology to business students.
So I have to think about human behavior and psychology. Besides psychology, I also read about religion and global politics. I have only published academic research articles. In other words, I am trained in writing simple things in technical and boring ways that only professors like to read.
Not much of a blogger- only come here to write, when I have some intuitive urge to spill out ideas. Oh,and I like to watch sitcoms and movies and enjoy traveling: I am also trying to learn portrait photography and macro photography View all posts by eyesofgaia.

By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. Also he had lost complete trust in Congress and had grown a bit paranoid even of his own party leadership. He was a man who had been betrayed one too many times and was not about to lose this time around. And he did not. He lost his health, and his only daughter but did not lose this final fight. Many thought that Pakistan was his obsession one last attempt to show his rivals who and humiliated him, his true worth.
But people have known to talk and they will always, had always, would always, one thing is for sure a country can not be built on a man's vanity and whim.
It takes determination, will and loyalty to a true cause. All of which he had. Quaid was nothing if he was not, strategic, persistent and intent. Mountbatten, the reason of the bloodiest partition of Punjab.
Termed Jinnah as psychopathic man, who wanted nothing more than to be Governor General himself, Odd thing for him to say as he had shown strong desire to be GG of not one but two subcontinental domains at the same time!! Never the less Jinnah made his point with Battens multiple times. In being photographed at Battens Jinnah insisted that Lady Mountbatten should stand between him and the lord but the Lord and Lady insisted that Jinnah must stand between them.
Which Quaid termed as a rose between two thorns what i would not give to see the expression on the faces of those insolent people, when Quaid made that pun.
There are few things i had problem on in this book. Number one whenever it comes to loss of the life of Hindus the writer gave figures but when it came to the massacre of Muslims the writer took great pains to keep the figures and religion of the deceased fuzzy. Many Muslim unfortunately and shamefully acted as hooligans but the crime against Muslims were 3 fold worse and organized and that was just the year of There is no accounting before that and not to mention the horribleness in Calcutta the year before.
And district of Gurdaspur, a Muslim Majority area given on purpose to India where Muslims were killed so extensively that they were whipped out. Also the presidential address of Quaid "You are free, you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques The writer questions what was he thinking about, when he said this? Well answer is this Pakistan was to be free place for Muslims a place where discrimination on the bases given above would not exist and be condemned.
He was not pleading for united India he was pleading for the brutality taking place on the both sides of border to stop. He wanted a Muslim state that stood for everything which had been denied to Muslims in one way or another. A state which would not treat its minorities the way they had been treated before.
All and all it was good book.
