Overview

In 1940 the All-India Muslim League orchestrated the demand for independent Muslim states in India. Seven years later Pakistan was created amidst a communal holocaust of unprecedented proportions. Concentrating on the All-India Muslim League and its leader, Mohammed Ali Jinnah, The Sole Spokesman assesses the role of religious communalism and provincialism in shaping the movement for Pakistan.

A well crafted tale of unintended consequences. I preferred the use of footnotes to endnotes in this case as the wealth of correspondence among the British authorities showed clearly the personalities and opinions that steered events.
