Jinnah of Pakistan (HB) by Stanley Wolpert

“ An important contribution to the study of one of the most significant episodes of modern history, the partition of India. Jinnah’s role has been consistently distorted both in scholarly work and in the popular media as most recently in the Gandhi film…. Wolpert has suceeded in showing Jinnah as a rationalist of great intelligence and political ability, who was driven to become the spokesman for the partition of India by tides of Indian Nationalism….”Ainslie T. Embree, Chairman, Department of History, Columbia University

“ This masterly biography of Pakistan’s Founder and “Great Leader” is also a thorough and objective study of the coming of political independence and partition to the Indian subcontinent.” Holden Furber, Emeritus Professor of History, University of Pennsylvania

“Scholarly, insightful, understanding and brilliant. Scholarship and the art of portrayal merge so masterfully in the work that Jinnah’s personality becomes truly alive.”Fazlur Rahman, Professor of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, University of Chicago

“A magnificent biography… We should be grateful to Stanley Wolpert for a book that combines meticulous research and scholarship with a lively and interesting style. He is one of the rare species: a scholar who can – and will -– write well.”Norman D. Palmer, Emeritus Professor of Political Science and South Asian Studies, University of Pennsylvania

“The first scholarly biography of one of the most important political figures of the modern world. Beautifully written, insightful, and dispassionate, it brings to life this complex, brilliant, and ambitious leader who did more than anyone else to bring to realization the seemingly chimerical dream of the founding a Muslim majority state in the Indian subcontinent. All readers interested in the contemporary history can profit greatly from reading this book.”Nikki Keddie, Past President, Middle East studies Association of North America

  • I placed my order in the aftermath of hurricane Ike, which affected the vendor by cutting off power and communication for several days. She contacted me by telephone immediately after restoration of her power and went through my options. I was quite satisfied with the personalized quality of the service and will not hesitate to patronize them again.
