The Political Career of Mohammad Ali Jinnah by William M. Metz
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


As the founder of Pakistan, Jinnah is usually revered in Pakistan and reviled in India. This book aims at an impartial account of his career and, using a wide range of sources, charts the stages of disillusion by which Jinnah moved from a fervent Congress supporter and secular 'apostle of Hindu-Muslim unity' to the successful leader of the movement for a separate homeland for the subcontinent's Muslims.
