Descrizione
Written from a historian's perspective, this book analyses the role Mohammad Ali Jinnah played as the first Governor-General of Pakistan. In the brief yet significant period that he was in office, Jinnah fought the battle for Pakistan's survival, providing it with a political, social, economic and diplomatic base. Substantial efforts were made to put the new country on the path of peace and progress, which would lead it to become one of the trend setting states in time to come. Jinnah, as Governor-General of the country, always remained the pivotal point in this struggle. This book highlights his contributions and also evaluates whether Jinnah was within his constitutional limits when he exercised executive powers as head of state in a parliamentary form of government. The book is based on primary source materials collected from Pakistan, United Kingdom, United States of America, India and Bangladesh.
