The Sole Spokesman: Jinnah, the Muslim League and the Demand for Pakistan (Cambridge South Asian Studies)

Customer Reviews:

A must read for anybody interested in the history of India

By munir@management.mcgill.ca - July 27, 1999

Ayesha Jalal has delivered a highly impressive piece of work. The research is impeccable and the analysis rigorous. Contrary to most historical accounts of the creation of Pakistan, Ayesha does not engage in rhetoric or political slogans. Instead, her efforts to remain unbiased clearly come across and are admirable. She is a historian par excellence and her talent for writing clearly and lucidly about complex subjects is clearly revealed in this book. A provocative piece of work which might actually get students of India/ Pakistan interested in a subject which they have always found dull.

Excellent book on the history of Pakistan

By Nazish Ekram - February 29, 2004

This is a excellent book on the history of Pakistan. Ayesha Jalal has done her home work and has presented the facts in a very logical fashion. I find this book among the few honest assesment on India and Pakistan division.

A book by a mind reader

By Anona - January 13, 2011

I do have substantial regard for the Father of Pakistan, Jinnah. His greatest achievement was to see the long term non-viability of a behemoth territory's multitudinous problems mainly it's intractable population: which would have been practically untenable. But, to show him as a person opposed to a partition is to deny his sagacious foresightedness and discredit his rightly earned legacy.

The preposterous proposals made by Jinnah in the pre-dawn of independence were by-any-measure-of-analysis only to preclude the possibility of a undivided British India. But, according to the Author they were "only fake threats to maintain the unity of the country".

I am sure she would throw Dan Brown behind her in "fictitious imagination".
